SKU: 56133LL1988

Heljan class 56 133 in weathered large logo blue livery. Includes all the emblishments from a Crewe built loco. Correct grey side grills and correct pattern cab handrails with the secondman's side intake grill. The cab roof has been slightly reprofiled so the visable line is removed. This loco has been reworked from a Brand New Heljan class 56 with all of the colours resprayed or altered. With all new transfers applied, these are supplied from Fox Transfers, and Railtec. The loco has been weathered as it was in the period 1986 to 1988 with the scawled 133 on the ends. 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, with card outer box and mounted on a wooden plinth. UK postage is Free, via DPD two day delivery service.
