Covid-19 diary #27

A little progress with the wagons.  I’ve 10 Peco Lowfits well on the way to completion.  The bodies have had their bolster bases scraped off with a knife blade and fine sandpaper.  They’ve been primed and a first coat of bauxite applied.  I’ve transfers ordered from Cambridge Custom Transfers to finish them off.

Meanwhile, Duncan has kindly printed me off 32 more bubble cars.  The next test will be starting to paint them all.  A little experimentation is needed – do I try and paint around the windows with a steady hand, or do I try and apply Maskol liquid with an equally steady hand?  Or do I just spray the whole bubble car, and then paint the windows with yet another steady hand.  I’ll tell you sometime soon!

Now, here’s an idea for a small railway layout – in the back of an American RV.  Of course, the average USA camper van has more room inside than the average UK house for a layout…..

And if you want an interesting prototype, head for the Florida Everglades….
