Building the A1 Models O9 Hunslet - 3

The paint shop doors opened, a bright glow came from within, the Hunslet was ready....

The main colour is Halfords Rover 'Blaze', over-coated with Testor's Dullcoat. Other colours have been picked out in various acrylics, although the cab roof is actually just left in the primer...  The driver has also been painted/varnished but must have nipped to the pub when the photos were being taken!

Jobs left to do at the time of taking the photos were to fit MicroTrains couplers and also add some weight into the chassis frame and bonnet (now completed).

I have had contact from John Flower at A1 Models to say that a second cab etch is in development more suited to 15" miniature railway use
