Another pic of the Boplate buffer, this time with the wooden packer fitted and shotblasted to soften the solder contours in the corners, it does represent cast steel afterall...

And another showing a coupling hook with reinforcing plate.

Many more to come as I tidy them up for the mould. ;)

Hi, here is the first pic of the first cast of the first trial mould, fitted to my stalled build of the Boplate E.

Hope they fit the bill for the ingot train on Mostyn ;)

Impressive stuff Dave. I've just fitted a set of your hooks and buffers to the next ex ironstone hopper and I'm well pleased with the result.

Finally plucked up the courage to remove the buffers that had already been fitted (and araldited in place) in order to use the new correct pattern boplate E buffers from Lanarkshire Model Supplies.

They are lovely crisp castings - well done, Dave

Hi,

As Philip has mentioned in the 'Beeg Blue Beastie' thread, the Boplate E was trusted to his tender mercies for priming, painting and initial weathering thuis last weekend.

They are now on my workbench awaiting lettering. This is the current state of play :-

Hi,

Probably the last posting from me on this topic (unless there are any queries).

Here's Boplate E BPO B947363 in completed form, lettered and with final touches of weathering.

G'day Richard,

Beautiful model that has come up really well from crisp building and a very decent paint and decal job!

Nb. I see what you mean regarding the brass underfloor bracing and why, they are a long wagon.

Cheers, Andrew
