The last couple of days have seen the 20 have some more small details added followed by a first coat of primer.









This of course highlighted all the lumps bumps and surface scratches caused by over enthusiastic sanding.

So an application of P38 body filler was needed followed by a couple of hours of sanding and "tweaking"









Of course the second set were always going to look better as they were taken in sunlight !

I kept looking at the last set of pictures and the louvre doors just didn't look right. Then I realised the proto the frames are more prominent, to louvres don't protrude as much.

So I did a bit of rework and added an extra frame. I think it looks better now.

I haven't made many posts of late. I decided it wasn't that interesting to show the results of rubbing, priming, rubbing priming !!! As I have been trying to get a surface finish I was happy with. I think the other reason for all the rubbing and priming was to put off doing the next bit. I wouldn't say I had lost my modelling Mojo, more I had come to a point of the build that I couldn't work out the best way forward. The circular fan grill on the top !

The 25 I di has quite a chunky grill, the 20 proto has a fine grill with a circular frame Mmmmmm....

Then it came to me when I was cutting a piece of drain pipe today, the 50mm circular frame could be a slice of 50mm water pipe. As for the grill I started looking in my garage and found just what I needed, some plaster board jointing skrim



Glued on the top with a cross support made from a couple of styrene strips



Then a quick rub down and wash followed by what i hope is a final coat of primer.









Once its all dry I can now move on.. Yellow then I need to get some Railfreight grey
