Now it's had a coat of primer on it I can asses how good a job I made of the conversion of WHHR carriage number 7, chopping off the top of the sides of the Dundas kit and adding the row of windows.
If I say so myself you wouldn't be able to tell that it wasn't meant to be like that.
Himself is also planning to add a few finer details, like slicing off the moulded handrails and door handles to replace them with brass ones - you can just make out the holes he has drilled to accept them.
He's also replaced the plastic air brake pipes which come with the kit and has made up his own from wire.
On with the painting now.
