Yesterday, the final pieces i required arrived in the post from Hong Kong, so i can happily say that Harvey can now continue work through the weekend, and will hopefully be ready for painting by late Saturday afternoon or early Sunday. New work in progress photos will be taken and displayed once the model is finished.
The model certainly has come a long way since it started a couple weeks ago, and the accuracy for such a scaled down model, even amazes me!
The last work to be done on the project, is the crane arm, and mounting it in place on the crane mounting block, once that is done, the currently loose body shell can then be glued firmly in place. And a video of the model can then be tested on the layout.
The chosen color for Harvey is somewhere between Crimson and Mechrite Red, once the model has been properly tested, it will be primed, then given the desired livery, and finished with a satin varnish.
