Trundling the layout back to the car from Warley, the one glued-down road vehicle decided to part company with the baseboard, leaving only a single wheelset. I've no idea what happened to it but wasn't inclined to go back to the NEC and find out.
Obviously I'd like the replace the Coopercraft AEC with an identical model but can't find a kit for sale and while I'm sure there is one in my stash, it's well buried and I didn't get around to digging it out.
The space looked a bit empty so I needed a quick replacement in time for the Doncaster show. An Oxford Diecast Landrover was to hand so a quick coat of Testors Dullcote, applied by brush rather than spray to save masking, was followed by a wash of Lifecolor track dirt weathering paint.
Total time required less than half an hour including drying time.
On the layout, the model looks fine and actually attracted positive attention. One visitor was really impressed as he'd been stripping and repainting the models. Suddenly he realised that a simple coat of varnish might be all that was required.
