How (Not) to Paint a Locomotive


This is the book which was written by Chris Vine after he had struggled for nearly two years to paint his locomotive Bongo, an LNER B1. He made a lot of mistakes along the way and found that there was almost nothing written which was of use to model engineers.

After winning a gold medal at the model engineer exhibition in 2004 and also the Charles Kennion Memorial cup for the best finished model in the show, he was encouraged by the chief judge, to write down what he had found out along the way. This book is the result.

It covers choice of equipment, making a spray booth, paint, preparation, spray painting, hand painting, lining, transfers, a list of suppliers and more...

Model Engineer Magazine said: "This really is the book we've been waiting for years to see. It gives chapter and verse on how to get a great finish on your model. How often have we seen super models spoilt by a poor paint job. It is quite simply the best practical book for model engineers we have seen for decades."
