Super Detailing the Heljan O Gauge Deltic

14/01/16: A new start...

Not happy with the paintwork I decided to strip and restart. Above after a dip in brake fluid the original paint is removed..

After etch primer is applied - note the battery vents (situated above the nameplate area) are removed as these would not be applied until after the period for this model...

Second visit to the paintshop - the grey roof and yellow ends were first to be applied then masked. Here the white windows and light green skirt are painted...

Prior to gloss the handrails are refitted and decals applied - finally after gloss the nameplates, worksplates and shedplates are affixed.
