3265 - Ex the Paint Shop

A couple of pics of the finished paint job.

I think this paint job was more difficult than 3822 (from a previous post) because the the 32 is a physically smaller loco and has more plumbing to work around. When it came to masking up it was just that much harder because of its size. Doing the boiler bands in sections was difficult when it came to lining up the short sections in a nice straight line.

All that remains now is a coal load and some tender tools, a crew and a test run on Bylong.

In the next post(s) I will cover the 'process' that I use to paint white metal.
(Sorry Geoff, this has been a long time coming and I realise I'm doing a 'backflip' but after a rethink I decided to make a post of it.)
