Big green shunting machine

Whilst work on the layout takes places I normally have stock projects on the go too. Most of what we do has a stop - start quality as paint and glue dries. These days I tend to leave longer between coats or for hardening time, so having an alternative project to go to makes sense. For the past few weeks I've been turning a bargain Fleischmann Swedish version of their Prussian G8 into its NMBS 81 guise. Originally it was going to be little more than a repaint but I sort of got drawn in to doing more. Seeing a little success motivates for tackling something else and the whole thing snowballs from there. Here's the finished item sneaking across the pavé.
