‘Oh no! I’ve ruined it!’

That’s what I thought several times whilst carrying out the work below. In an effort to do some actual modelling last night, I turned off the laptop, put Doctor Who (series 9) on the box and set to work with the MSC DH16 Hornby Sentinel. The goal was to remove the lettering and basically make her one dirty girl, ready to receive new nameplates.

Rather than post a blow by blow transcript of what I did (acrylics, cotton wool buds and the odd drop of water) here is a photographic account transformation. I’m very happy with it, but can’t help but wonder if I’ve possibly over done it? I’m yet to varnish it as I might remove a little bit more first. All thoughts and comments welcome.
