John

The liquid mask you mention is it latex based? as I have some latex from my potting days which could work.

Mike,
It doesn't list the ingredients on bottle but it probably is latex.
You brush it on, leave it to dry, paint and it then can be peeled off and is stretchy/rubber-like.
It is pink/purple in colour!

The River project is finished in all it’s Victorian spender, they did like polished brass on their engines. The loco has R/C and sound and chuffs along just like the real thing, and has been a very enjoyable build.

Mike, that is really magnificent!  With such a clean appearance, there is nowhere to hide.  Great job!

Splendid work, Mike. The array of springs along the engine and tender is particularly eye-catching.

Thanks for the kind comments, as I said at the outset it is an engine I particularly admire so having a G3 version is most pleasing.
