Airfix HO Scale Stephenson's Rocket
I built this one for my girlfriend. Why? Because she asked me to. She likes steam engines, which is not a bad thing in my book. Pretty much out of the box (out of the blister pack more accurately) other than replacing the stack stays with .015" brass rod and the piping around the boiler with 040" brass rod. Paint is Humbrol yellow, aluminium and coal black (first time I've actually used this to paint coal!) with polished aluminium for the wheel rims. The firebox is in Citadel "Dwarf Bronze", which is a nice dark brass colour. Testors Metalizer Brass was used for the shiny bits on top.
