So a trip away from the layout and over to the work bench.

I had an old hornby Flying Scotsman just asking to be modified so today I had a go at:-

Air brushing with railmatch paints

So no longer 4472 and well on the way to becoming BR 60097 Humourist.

Just needs to be lined and then I'm going to try weathering

How's it look to you, it is matt finish just shining the garage light....

looks good.

The airbrushing looks faultless. Any tips for preparation and application of the paints.

I have a few locos which could benefit from this.

Rubbed down with 1000 grit wet and dry and then cleaned with mild soapy water.

then build up the paint with light coats and let dry in between.

Spray from a distance of about 8"

Not much else...
