Himself has finished painting 125, the new FR Service Car, and all that remains is to give it a coat of varnish.
He did spot something I'd missed when I built it - the kick plates on the bottom of the doors.
Rather than attempting to paint them in situ he was quite canny and cut the pieces out of thin styrene and painted them black before gluing them into position.
The carriage looks very smart - and shiny - just now. I'm very happy with how it's turned out.
It may well be the case that' he'll wait until there are a few more models ready to varnish before firing up in the air brush, however.
