D1020 WESTERN HERO Heljan 7mm loco
Brand new 0 gauge class 52 (Western) from Heljan
Weathered BR Blue livery.
This loco has been reworked from a Heljan locomotive with my nameplates, detail transfers from Railtec. It has been resprayed and weathered with about 16 different tonal colours and represents the loco in its 1970 to 1971 condition. The prototype was in this condition before getting repainted. It must have been a bad paint job mixed with harsh chemicals in the carriage washing plants at the time. The blue was faded right through to the original maroon livery and undercoat colours. I have used weathering powders, chipping mediums, dry brushing to produce this effect. All protected with two coats of matt varnish.
Working LED directional headcodes and tail lights. Cab and control desk lights.
Plastic bodyshell and fittings
Solid metal for excellent haulage capabilities.
