Smallbrook Katie

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

Dear fellow GN15 modellers,

My version of Mike Rayner's smalbrook studio Heywood "Katie".


She awaits final detailing. Lining completed using one of the "Sharpie" oil paint pens - ultra fine.
Best wishes,

Very nice Mark. She looks hard-worked but well cared-for :D

That's a very different look for a Heywood loco! It is in some ways reminiscent of the real 'Katie's spell at Southport, where it no doubt had some colour to it and sported large 'Llewellyn's Miniature Railway' lettering on the tank sides. Sadly I've only ever seen black and white pics... (probably too early for colour!)
