Heljan 33050 Isle of Grain


Heljan class 33. 33050 Isle of Grain.


This loco has been reworked from a Heljan class 33 new version with printed details removed. The loco has additional painting details, such as red axle box covers, silver buffer shanks and snowploughs added . The loco has been weathered as it was in the period 1991 to the end of summer 1994.  It comes with protoneo etched nameplates. The weathering involves stripping the loco, performing the modifications to the livery, then the first stages of weathering 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.
