Mk.2d BFK…


One of a handful of work bench projects to be completed is a cut & shut project involving the merging of two former Airfix Mk.2d coaches into one. A BSO and an FO were carved up, window sections discarded and the remainder glued together to make a reasonable representation of a BFK. A full repaint, fitting of ‘Laserglaze’ and weathering of the completed body shell was a must. A Mk.1 RMB is next – the challenge is finding some window frames to upgrade the Bachmann model…

…before it can be painted in Intercity livery. Air brake details and a change to the roof vents will be needed too. A handful of Mk.2f using Lima models as a basis, enhanced with Shawplan ‘Laserglaze’ and fitted with Bachmann B4 bogies will follow.
