"A quick selection of Hornby Gresley P2 pictorial updates"


Just a couple of quick pics to show where I am with the P2. Cabsides are in the process of being modified to the correct cut out size...


…the driving wheels and pony/cartazzi wheels are now painted black...


…and the body shell is coming along nicely, with the resin lower sides amalgamated with a Hornby smokebox front and top upper third. The ACFI water header bulge has been removed and the A4 top to the boiler blended in.

Lots more work to do, but she is getting there. The big worry was taking the chassis apart and putting it back together once the driving wheels were painted but happily all seems to be working fine.

Until next time.

P2's looking very good indeed, how's your reformulated garter blue going? Looking forward to seeing it on your next A4.
