Right here goes. Started the initial artwork for the Etch Brass version of this new kit this morning. The first thing I did was have a good look at the variations between the loco's to see if I would need one or two body shells. I've found, with some careful design, I can use one body shell. You'll see how and why as the kit progresses. Then I decide what material will go where and it will be roughly the same as the Class 24/25's. So, it will be mainly etch brass with white metal canopy's, resin fuel tanks and cab interior. The bogie will have a removable internal chassis with whitemetal cast sides. With NBL projects I have copies of the works drawings, with the 24/25's I had measurements I had taken myself some years ago. With this project I have scaled down GA's and actual measurements I took of 27 066 Now I can create the outline plan in the 2d CAD for the etch artwork which I can now export directly over to the 3d software saving considerable time and ensuring accuracy. I'm not above making cock-up's - there's one or two in every kit so if anyone see's something feel free to shout!
