The Parry People Mover has been formally handed over to Himself to apply the finishing touches.
I am pleased to report that it survived its 400 mile journey at the hands of the Royal Mail intact.
The last job I did before packaging it up was sticking on the blue lining which straddles the raised waist panel.
For this I used 0.75 lining from the Fox Transfers range which was a pleasure to use as always.
So what's left to do?
The bodyshell requires a coat of satin varnish.
There are headlight jewels obtained from the USA to be inserted in the holes in each corner at the front.
I have pre-cut some glazing sections for Himself to fit, followed by etched brass windscreen wipers.
The very last thing will be a big bilingual transfer along each side saying Welsh Highland Railway / Rheilffordd Eryri .
Steve (of Narrow Planet fame) has kindly knocked up some artworks for us and we'll see whether a DIY transfer will do the job, otherwise it will be another commission for Precision Decals.
I'm looking forward to seeing it on Bron Hebog again at Railex next week.
