1/76th Trackside F12 Makeover 2
This my second makeover of the Corgi Trackside Dennis F12 Pump Escape;
I stripped the model down and removed the blue beacons from the cab glazing; the holes in the cab roof where the beacons fitted were filled in using body filler and then sanded smooth. The next step was to file off the two tone horn casting from the roof; the cab roof was then re-painted in matt black. A new blue beacons was fitted to the cab roof in the centre were the two tone horn casting had been. The locker detail and rear grab rails were then painted in silver; wing mirrors were made and then fitted. I then made the water-slide decals for each side of the model and the number plates. For the wheeled escape I made and fitted new winding gear for the ladder this includes the ladder cables; I replaced the 2 supports on the ladder with round ones and fitted the tension cables from the rear frame to the ladder. The escape wheels and rear frame were painted red and the head of the ladder painted white.
