Shown here are 3 Bachmann Class 37 models, Two are the Model Rail Limited Edition, and one is a compleat repaint. Two feature PHDesigns replacement resin noses. 37423 features the correct Nose and Top Headlight, 37409 is the Std Model Rail Item and 37603 is a Std Bachmann Refurbished 37 with PHDesigns replacement noses and Lancaster City Models Waterslide DRS logo Transfers.
Well 2012 is about to draw to a close and it’s been a “interesting” year for me …
Not enough time to do most of the modelling that I wanted to do, but the DRS 37’s have all made it to the finished state, 37604 is the last, and I’m adding the Extreme Etchings Window Frames & Lazerglaze this afternoon.
I have had difficulty getting to Define meetings during the second half of the year due to the rest day pattern.
However all this has changed and will change again in the Spring, so here’s hoping for some better access to the Brunswick to be with ‘The Lads’
Time for a “Show and Tell” to finish the year off ….
More Std Bachmann 37/0 and Refurbished 37 Models That have been Repainted and fitted with PHDesigns replacement resin noses to get the correct light arrangements on the ends. Here we have ( L – R, B – F ) 37609 and 37423. 37603 & 37069. 37194 & 37259. Finally 37059 at the front.
Again all are finished with the excellent Lancaster City Models DRS logos.
Last one for 2012 ……………….
37259 & 37069 sit outside the as yet unfinished Shed on my small display layout, surrounded by a brace of other DRS repaints done this year.
Can you tell that we like 37’s !!
So joining the Bachmann Produced Limited Edition DRS 37’s of 37038/409/510 & 688, we have Repainted and Re-Nosed 37059, 37069, 37194, 37259, 37423 ( new nose & renumbered only ), 37603, 37604, 37609 & 37611.
37087 has also been added to the ‘Fleet’, but this is just a re-number/ nameplate added conversion of a 37038 Limited Edition …
A big ‘Vote Of Thanks’ to my Modelling Pal, Richard J, for being the other half of the ‘Workforce’ and being the “Decal Demon” again in this Project … Cheers Matey!!
“Enough DRS?” You say -Naaahhhhh! :o.
Happy New Year to all Readers .. See you on the Flip Side ( 2013 ).
