Front wheels and belly tank progress on Burrell SCC.

Post  TimV on Sun 12 Apr 2015, 4:09 pm

The start





Ready for riveting



The finished wheel







Building Belly Tanks



Decided to paint Apexior 3 sealer as I built them



Still have sore fingers from all the riveting nearly a week later!
I have to say that it was a very fiddly job.



Painted in undercoat



Top coat hand painted just waiting for it to harden before I line it out. Will put some pics on when I have done it.



I need a boiler Mr Baldock!!

Actually Tony the paint finish is not that perfect, I think you find that it always seems to look better in a photo !!
