And just to show you I'm not proud about the materials I select for use as the foundation of my models... meet the 'lash express'. I couldn't resist the irony. The diameter of the mascara tube was exactly what I needed for the boiler. Another Ov variant that will be partiallly armoured. All but the steam domes and the chimney will be obscured by sloping armour and the driving wheels will feature Joy valve gear sculpted in green stuff partially visible behind the armour plating.
Warriors dreams, summer grasses, all that remains

Just completed painting my first 15mm scale entirely scratchbuilt RCW locomotive. This is a freelance model based on a variety of White Russian examples with sloping 'toblerone' armour. It is built up from a block wood and balsa foundation clad in plasticard with Milliput and scrap plastic detailing. The chimney cowl and steam dome are made from a plastic screw cover. I am particularly pleased with the front smoke box door modelling. I've painted it In speculative black and tan striped camouflage seen on Ataman Kalmykov's armoured command train 'Kalmykovets' photographed at Vladivostock in 1919-20, I've styled mine as 'Vityaz' (knight) with suitably inspirational slogan 'For Rus, Sacred, United and Indivisible'. This train famously engaged and defeated the Red Army train 'Comrade Blyukher', so I can stage a wargame grudge match in the fullness of time.
