Heljan O gauge 50002 Superb.


This loco has been built from a refurbished Heljan class 50 to an original condition class 50 completely resprayed in BR blue with varying shades of blue (lighter on the roof). Then new transfers applied, these are supplied from Fox Transfers and Railtec. The loco has been weathered as it was in the period 1979 to mid 1983 before going for refurbishment in May 1983. It comes with protoneo etched nameplates and coloured etched plaques. The weathering involves stripping the loco, performing the modifications to loco with the protoneo class 50 etched kit which takes it back to the original condition, then the first stages of painting go on. This is then coated with a light matt varnish, another blending coat of weathering using powders, dry brush and wash techniques are applied. This is then has air brush weathering applied with a final coat of protective varnish sprayed on. The loco is the reassembled, reglazed and finished with patches of oil textures to the parts which would have oil on them (Coil springs, around axle boxes and fuel tank filler leaks).

This Locomotive comes boxed and mounted on a wooden plinth.
