    Aah, jolly good. By any measure, it's not an attractive livery, but will look impressive in model form. :thumbs:

    Backmann Brass class 24. Bodged by someone, most screws missing, paint has been stripped then primed on top of the loose paint. Held together by large blobs of solder including the bogies. Half the pickups wires cut and wippers fitted to one bogie.
    I told the owner it was scrap, he talked me into rebuilding it.:headbang::headbang::headbang:
    So out came the flamethrower.
    Now trying to put it back together with half of the body angle missing.
