Well these 3 are done.  The original picture is recreated below.


Much happier now, in the end I did a full repaint on both clasa 25’s. I’ll add more pictures of the 25’s to their page over the next day or so.

While the 25 roof fan mod is an improvement over the Bachmann original the difference the Extreme Etches fan grill makes to their Peak is a bit more drastic!

peak-roof-fansI never realised just how undersize the original fan moulding is.  This one is much easier to fit though as the entire fan and its mounting ring is the size of the opening for the new fan.

Finally I know I said id wait but as I was respraying the 25’s in blue I did the Newspaper GUV too.  Below is the result.

    The extreme etches certainly change the peak don’t they! Have you a stash of JLTRT paint left or have you found an alternative blue paint yet?

    Afraid not, I’ve gone back to Railmatch through an airbrush.

    I always look forward to your updates Jim. Have you considered linking your images to larger versions, it would be great to see them in more detail. I use NextGEN Gallery on my wp site.

    Hi Jim,

    Great work as always. I particularly like the Newspaper GUV.

    All the best,

    The workbench images are 800px and gallery images are larger. I doubt I could afford the bandwidth if they were any bigger!
