"Thompson D Class 4-4-0, The Morpeth" - Update 2

Just a little update this evening, began adding details to the Thompson D Class, as well as preparing the tender for repainting, and modifying the smokebox door so it is ready for some plasticard bashing into its required form later in the week. The chassis was due to go into the paintshop today but I ran out of time. C'est la vie!

And just a couple of images where I put my D11 bodyshell kit I procured some time ago, onto the ex-D49 chassis:

Not a million miles away, you know. Very interesting development, and a second D49 may be on its way shortly. Where I am going to get the GCR tender from, mind, is anyone's guess!

Until next time!
