Well it's been a while, but this picture is my new Black 5 on return to my layout, from Kim's after he put her through her paces !! on Lord Street Extension (video),  she had no lining, numbers. (plain)

So decided it would look much better, lined, numbered etc,etc.so Fox Transfers black 5 transfer set ordered. Meanwhile found  pictures of the one I wanted to replicate.
Whist waiting to be Scrapped  

When saved and restored



So let battle commence :mutley2:Now with the help of Chris we got stuck into lining the beast (part 1)




(Part 2 )

(Part 3) finishing first side. Thanks for pictures Kim.


This side done.
We didn't realise how long you have or can hold your breath when doing this type of work.But it's worth it in the end, I still have plenty to do, like weathering, windows, coal, crew. :facepalm:

Pity postage from the UK to Aus is so steep as I know where I'd be sending mine

Nice job, and looking forward to seeing the final loco.

Beautiful work on the lining and numbering Ralph (& Chris). Don't worry about what Paul said, postage to Sydney is far cheaper so if you want to scrap it, I know someone who will look after it ! :mutley2:

Cheers, Gary.

Superb lining out work there Ralph and what good light you have in the work space too. A thoroughly nice loco the Black 5, are you going with the 24B shed plate also?
Cheers York Paul

Well it may have taken a few weeks to finally get it sorted Ralph, but as said above, great job you and Chris have done. 👍🏻
Shame it’s all going to get covered up when weathered :facepalm::mutley2::mutley2::mutley2:

Before and After a little more work on mi Black 5, 


Method I used was cutting and shaping cereal box card, when happy removed card, then placed grease proof paper in tender, then replaced card and PVA glued in coal, with tender angled so as glue didn't run down and out. ( real coal from H.V.R.Hotham Valley Railway.(broken down to a realistic size)
