Hi there! Some time has passed but the first semester is finally over, so that’s nice. Today I finally present to you my model of the LNER A4 Class steam locomotives. Hope you all like it and to see you on my next project!
Certainly one of the world’s most famous steam engines, built in 1935 by Sir Nigel Gresley for the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER), they served on the East Coast Main Line for most of their life time. Built for speed they present an elegant streamlining outside and inside, on the steam circuit, an innovation at the time. All this gave them a speed unmatched till today for a steam engine. Set on July 3rd, 1938, the Mallard, engine number 4468, achieved the top speed of 202.8 km/h (126mph).

It was quite a challenging model to make, mainly to get the front of engine shaped right. The model features a detailed cab and many details including the inside third cylinder.
This project consists of a collection of pretty much all liveries the engines went through, from the initial silver from the Silver Jubilee express service to the wartime full black livery. The scale as usual is 3:1.

It looks a bit rushed ;)
Thanks, she just arrived from the trials, I even had to make a new centre bearing, the old one had melted.

I really admire and love your Steam Trains.
Thank you very much! I have much fun doing them and all your nice feedbacks help me keep doing it and to always seek improvement.
Great project as usual! What is your favourite livery? Mine is the wartime black as it's a bit unusual.
Thank you, I do find the black one interesting for the same reaon and also because it feels familiar, but I think the one I like the most is the silver one, also because it's a bit unusal and it just looks fitting, like modern, slick and fast.
