restoring a Dapol BR black 0-6-0 saddle tank

2 posts in this topic

Hi,

what some people do with their models sometimes is not understandable.

I don't have anything against number change or even a repaint.

But if you start such an undertaking, know what you're doing, or keep your fingers of it, that's my opinion.

I recently bought such a model where a change was started with a good intention, but was treated badly.

The Dapol BR black 0-6-0 saddle tank lettering and BR logo was very rough removed with a scalpel I think.

Above that aggressive glue was spilled on the roof of the cabin.

After filling with Tamiya putty and some careful sanding with water and 1500 grit sandpaper all the uneven parts as good as removed.

Than the to be restored parts where primed.

I choose to restore the model back as it was intended.

And after the finishing varnish layer, I was pleased with the result.

Let me know what you think of the job that've done.

Cheers,
