Whatever colour it ends up being, this is far and beyond any madness you have achieved to date MSea!

Thank you for your kind words - I do TRY and keep on the correct side of madness - but not sure which side that is.

Some more work done adding the ford deck to the Tattershall Castle. Next job to add a little more filler on the parts shown up by the primer. Then its onto the bridge, funnel,lifeboats and rails.

Where did you get the railings from MSea?  Are they spares from another kit, generic from (eg) White Ensign or scratch built?

Hi Wizzel they are a generic set from White Ensign.
The first photo shows the section under the bridge - scratch built from bits of spare acrylic. The last 2 show the bridge being made from a bit of spare brass.

Thanks MSea.  I may be in the business of wanting some soon...!

Lovely work from you as always.  A combination of a keen eye, steady hand and an active imagination.

Bridge and area finished -- next a bit of primer then on with the painting.
Before anybody points out the bridge windows on the Tattershall Castle should be square, if you wish to take the drilled holes and file them all out square and the same size -- you must be on a skill level with Haddock - and that's about 80% improved on me.  So they will stay round.

Cropper does stock some generic railing, not sure of quality, will have a look today when I an in there.

Some work done on the funnel and mast with stays.  I have traveled on the Tattershall Castle lots of times as a child but don't remember the funnel like this. Its a good job we have photos to correct our imperfect minds. 
AND BEFORE the rivet counters start on at me this model is based on the Tattershall Castle not an exact replica - its mine so I can do as I wish !!!!!!!!

British Rail logo added to funnel from tape. 
Before you ask Wizzel it was Model Technics TrimLine coach tape from Croppers, a while ago and I don't remember the price.

Hi Msea,
Was that called the British Railway logo, or was it the 'Intercity' logo?
Cheers,
