Hi Brian
I have also got a Mailcoach kit of Silver Jubilee which I havenot yet summonded up enough courage to start. I must say reading about your efforts and your photos have got my fingers twitching a bit. You say you have used Bachman bogies.
Is there a reason for this or just your preference ? I am sure my kit has got Mailcoach bogie kits. Have you seen the book
"Steamlined Steam -Britain's 1930s Luxury Expresses" There are some terrific pictures and some detail re paint finishes , and the use of Rexine both inside and out which have helped me . If you have the book all well and good , if not I can post the details.
Regards Tony 10001
