Work on my conversion has moved another step closer to completion, with a "spray job" and decals added, time to start adding details :)

Having painted my 10 wheeler, I am now starting to assemble and detail, here is the progress so far - Amazing, you cannot hide anything from the camera, and it seems the loco body may need a small flash of paint as it seems to be a be light on the chimney:

Are you sure it was not reflected light from the wall?

Try moving the loco to natural light, and check..

Yep, moved it to the light, and you can see the grey primer just showing through in a couple of areas, shouldn't take long to strip for a quick spray, just need to get out and buy some paint :)
