class 20 in G
 
Over the weekend I was considering what I could fill my evenings with this week. Mrs RJR is organising a youth camp which are eldest 2 are on and the youngest has gone on Holiday with here friends family, so I am " Home Alone"

Any way I decided I would have a go at a class 20 as I could cheat and use the bogie units off the 25 to give me a head start. After sourcing some suitable plans on Sunday evening and some plasticard on the way home mid after noon today I had everything I needed :)

Here we go then. The base plate from 2 layers of 60thou laminated together

After cutting several bulkhead and the cab ends ...

Next step some panels, the ones that will be louvred were a little fiddly

Finally, buffer beams and a roof, this time having tried plastic strips and balsa on the last 2 builds, so I went for rolled plastic this time.

At the moment I have only trimmed the roof back on the cab it will need trimming and a rad sanding along the roof main body line.

So far I estimate I have spent about 5hrs on it today and an outlay of about 7

Remarkable .. just remarkable. I actually had another reaction but .. a gentleman shouldn't say such things in a family oriented forum .. :)

thanks guys

A combination of a late finish and calling at my parents to set up his new lap top, has left me with limited time / energy to do much tonight. so I have blended the roof line to the body sides with a rad. Then I shaped a piece of balsa for the nose and bedded it on some P38 filler. when it has dried this will all be blended in too.

Coming along nicely John. Liking the louvre detail. I see from youtube that you holiday'd down in cornwall. I think you had the best of the weather. It's been raining all day today and tomorrow's no better. Hope you took your passport with you to get across the bridge,lol.
