Stage 96 Contents: Decorations.

Remove any burrs or flash from the decorations supplied with this stage. Apply a coat of metal primer and leave to dry.

Now retrieve decorations C68b, C68g, C68h, C58j and C58k from stage 80. If you haven’t already done so then remove any burrs or flash from these decorations and apply a coat of metal primer.

Follow the painting guide provided within the instructions to paint all these decorations. When dry, carefully store the decorations in a bag labelled with this stage number, ensuring you can easily identify the two different sets.

This stage is now complete.

Very neat work.

They look like they are "trying the builders patience" with some of thosevparts getting smaller it looks like to me.

Thanks Tony, can only agree with you. Builders will need a great deal of patience when painting all of the decorations, they are small, detailed and never ending. Same image again but this time with the customary penny shot for scale and these are not the smallest.....Cool Cool

Thanks Kev for your kind comments, appreciated as always....Cool Cool .. Painting the castings is certainly a challenge and there is still some 300 still to be done. Time consuming but hopefully all the effort will be worth it in the end....Cool Cool
