The time has come to put down the soldering iron and stir the paint...

What originally started out as a black five has morphed into a Jubilee style locomotive... I think it looks drop dead gorgious in red primer and I have a (small) amount of genuine LMS Crimson Lake or a source of Coronation Scot "Markeaton Red"... I do not want to paint it black. Neither do I feel that I want "Brunswick Green", although I feel that I would accept that. My Son has suggested the railway is an parallel universe where 1949 never happened and I can have LMS painted locos in 1962(!)

Does anyone have an "out" ???

Ralph

It's your railway Ralph!

I do like it though, and you have a precedent for a red black five - and an 8F!  ;D

Having stirred the jamjar and thinned it with turpentine to 3 seconds...

The second coat is drying and already the Lake is starting to look "black" as it is not returning a colour -just the glossy mirror. I have three more coats to do and then hope there is enough left to do the tender when I have built it...
