This is a 'kill 2 birds with 1 stone' build!LOL I needed something to do between the Tornado and Triumph builds (Waiting for paint to dry!) and I am running out of room in the stash cupboard (under the eldests bed!LOL). So I thought this was an ideal time to build the C57 as I have had the complete kit for a while now. So here is my C57 Express, as I cant see it taking that long to put together as there is no painting or weathering! Time taken so far is about 2 hrs!LOL BigGrin Cool

Choo Choo!!!LOL Starting to resemble a loco now! And you remember at the beginning of the thread when I said easy to build, no painting required? Well I fibbed!!LOL I was looking at the con rods and thought Hmmmmm, they need polishing. So I did and then thought Hmmmmm, they need some colour, so I did! And then polished the piston rods!!LOL LOL Cool

The wheels on the train go round and round!LOL BigGrin Fixed! Heated the offending wheel in boiling water and straightened with 2 'C' Spanners! Aso found out that Vallejo Air black is a perfect match for the wheels and Tamiya flat black is perfect for the body!!BigGrin Cool
