A couple more shelf queens have found their way through the paintshop: They started out as identical resin bodies with Exactoscale, Slaters and Ambis bits underneath. No prizes for spotting the differences! This one is supposed to have had all it's timber replaced but not painted during it's last visit to the workshop so it should last a few more years in service. This one will soon be daubed with "One journey only, Loco coal" before being dismantled to recycle the metal, or maybe just added to a bonfire. I'm not entirely happy (yet) with the finish of either vehicle (and I spotted things to add to the "to do" lists whilst taking the photos) so they'll be put back on the shelf for a while and looked at with fresh eyes in a few days/weeks/months/years time. And then I found this on the shelf: A Parkside LNER open with Slaters and Ambis additions below. Four scratchbuilt LNER axleboxes (each with the letters LNE embossed upon the face) -- it's been a shelf queen for so long that it pre-dates 3D printing technology which is how the axleboxes would be done these days; well, there was nothing on the goggle-box that Christmas... There's a "to do" list to complete before E208143 goes through the paintshop to become "unpainted" as shown in the (fuzzy) picture behind.
