No more masking tape and decals applied!

Would you just look at that!? The gloss looks incredible, the decals period correct, and a distinct lack of paper and tape on the windows.

Ensuring the decals will last, they've been applied under the top coat of lacquer for that glossy finish.

Without tape and paper, our train is looking rather tidy. Gone are the bent and crumbling panels - present are the shiny glossy smooth ones!

And one more image just because it looks too good not to share...

And that's the outside of the train near enough complete... Now just to tackle the inside... Stay tuned.
