Heljan class 50002 Superb.

Doncaster Style original NSE.


This loco has been reworked from a Heljan NSE class 50 with most of the colours resprayed. This livery differs from the original Heljan version. With a higher roofline white and all new transfers applied, these are supplied from Fox Transfers, and Railtec. The loco has been weathered as it was in the period 1987 to 1989 before a repaint. It comes with protoneo etched nameplates and photo plaques. 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.
