Started sanding and painting a bit today. Mainly used one of these felt disks in a dremel and a cardboard cosmetic fingernail file. Plus some 700 sandpaper.
Used undiluted Windsor & Newton Galeria Lamp Black (Acrylic) for a first trial paint coat. It acts as some kind of a filler. Will work on it with very fine steel wool tomorrow and see what happens.
At the moment I am quite happy wth this little locomotive. Gives me a chance to try out techniques I don´t know or have not used in a long time.
I am aiming at archieving a well kept work horse loco, after 25 years in active use. A few dents and scratches will be OK.
If someone can supply a picture of the backhead of this type of loco, it would be helpfull. It probaly will need a few steam lines.
