In 2018, the RAF celebrates its 100th anniversary - on 1st April to be precise and, although the comedy value of that precise date has always amused me, I mention it primarily as it is the deadline I've set myself to produce a model of this magnificent beast: Yep - 6159 The Royal Air Force in near original condition - its smoke deflectors just added scarcely 2 years after it rolled out. One of the batch of the final 20 to be built at Derby in 1930, complete with bogie brakes, slide bar vacuum pump (t'other side) and (unusually for Royal Scots in general but some references state common with the Derby lot), a fully vermillion front buffer beam. I have a very blurred photo of it prior to getting its smoke deflectors and I haven't completely ruled out building it exactly as it rolled off the production line. That rather depends on what modelling shortcomings I may need to hide with those very useful 'screens'..! I'm using David Andrew's lovely kit, although have already decided not only to pair it with a Ragstone Models Fowler 3500g 'Old Standard' tender, but also to incorporate CSB in the loco (it's already in the tender kit) - something I think adds a considerable degree of realism to the way the model moves, from my experience with P4. It's my first attempt at CSB in 7mm scale.
