Time to show some progress on the project. Must say have much enjoyed the building especially the last kit.
Here is the project so far.

Have decided to follow LMS colours ie crimson lake/black. may develop into an LMS parcels lorry.

Also decided to put in grease nipples where possible, and where used on the C Types I have seen. I believe the grease will keep the bearing cleaner in the long run, sorry Steve.

My son did some artwork on the Foden logo for the wheel caps, a mate of his tried to etch the result with mixed results, due mainly to poor transfer adhesion due to the large heat sink in the brass cap, however managed to clean it up and increase the depth of the etch with careful use of Dremel and very small dentists drill bought at a local Steam Fair.

Great job & thanks for posting.

You'll find some information in the kit leaving tomorrow about the option of having the Foden logo cnc machined on to your hubcaps.
