In this thread I would like to present my recently started design project of the BR Class 28, which is a rare model in this scale and which would nicely fit on any Gauge-O-Guild layouts.
This is a rather challenging project for this unusual model shape, firstly because of its facial window shape is irregular, secondly because of the unequal amount of ventilation openings and re-positioned doors on both sidewalls and finally because of two different bogies under the frame.
There are several vintage and modern painting variations of this locomotive type livery, but mostly are appreciated the classic BR colours.
This is my first attempt to enter the Royal railway modelling scene and probably I require some time to study few distinct British gauge O standards in order to be able to equip this locomotive with the suitable components, such as bumpers, coupling, wheel sets, etc.
This project is slowly progressing and therefore comments concerning improvements are welcome.
Here are the first impressions of the yet unfinished hollow body shell...
