Pullman Painting Progress

I haven't written recently about the two 7mm scale WHR Pullmans I've been building for a client over the last year or so.

A year? Well, Rome wasn't built in a day, you know, and this pair are going to be very special when they're finished.

Himself kindly offered to deploy his airbrushing talents to finish them off so they've been exported to Oxfordshire where they are in the process of being painted.

Here is 'Bodysgallen' in primer...

And a shot of 'Glaslyn' showing the card template for the glazing in the big end window. Because it is curved and angled back the glazing needs to be cut into a crescent shape.

I can't help noticing that in the process Himself has managed to break off the front vacuum pipe. He really is all fingers and thumbs you know...

(In fairness I should not discount the possibility that he deliberately removed it to make applying the ornate transfers around the front of the carriage easier.)
