009 Bagnall?

Now I've cleared the Llynfordd work, it's time to clear some of those half started projects. Working on the principle that on an 009 layout there are never enough locos I started this. It began life as a Chivers Bagnall (it is pictured elsewhere on the other pages) that hit the deck and came away with a busted cab. Thus this is a little bit of the Irishman on the horse - 'If I wanted to go there, I wouldn't start from here.'
It is what a friend of mine would call a 'styrene bash' - RTR chassis (Ibertren Cuckoo) commercial tank moulding and plastic. the Chivers blob is terrible, but I don't want to throw it. Happy with the footplate, and spectacle, but yesterdays work on the cabside will be replaced as I think the cab cut-out is too big in the cold light of day.

On another note I see that yesterday topped the 125 page views for this page in a single day for the first time, and overall page views are heading toward 20,000 with total hits 30,000 plus.
Considering I don't write regularly (yet?) for one of the mags, I find this quite startling.
Thank you for dropping by.
