Modelling Update – 009 shunter using Farish Class 14 chassis and Knightwing 0-4-0 diesel kit

Just a quick update. The Knightwing shunter has now received windows, handrails and nameplates by Narrow Planet. I named and numbered the loco in memory of my father who was born in ’23 and received the D.F.M. from King George VI on the morning of V.E. Day’ May 8th 1946. He died 20 years ago and I miss him every day.

The loco has been ‘dirtied’ using my first use of Games Workshop Citadel paints. The dirt is a wash using “Nuln Oil” and the rusty exhaust used a base-coat of “Typhus Corrosion” then a dry-brushing of “Ryza Rust” followed by a top coat of of “Typhus Corrosion”. Where do they get those names from!

Overall I am pleased with the Games Workshop paints and will explore using more of them in the future.

Now I just need to sort out the Led lights and glue the cab roof on when it is all wired up.

Now here is a short video showing how well the Farish Class 14 chassis runs in this model. A scale minimum speed of < 1.4 mph and a scale maximum of 24 mph set on the Digitrax DZ125 DCC decoder.
