J68 8639

No.8639, based on a Connoisseur kit, was built by Colin Dowling to ScaleSeven standards. I painted and weathered it to represent the poor state much of the ex-GER stock found itself in during the immediate post-war period. In particular this meant representing the low quality black paint applied by Stratford during and after WW2 which often led to the pre-1946 number slowly reappearing under the new one.
