The Black 5 is being hauled through Gijpswik by a 66 before being taken to the workshops.
About this creation
The ex LMS Black 5 or perhaps the BR standard 5 has been a long time building. Perahps as long as three years now. As the wheels available were red I decided this particular example is actually a DB standard 5!
The most amount of time was spent trying to figure out a means of getting the thing round corners, points and the like, which I have managed to a certain degree. It involved lots of swivel bricks and flat plates.
It is still not finished, the rods and things are missing but not likely to be added, then again who knows. I'd like to examine the actual engine too and then change a few small details. The tender should have more wheels and isn't right anyway, it was a real rush job.
