The first set of test etches for the Hudson-Hunslet arrived today from Narrow Planet and there is good news and bad news:
From an initial glance I'm really happy with how the front grill has turned out. Unfortunately the plates with the makers name on aren't as much of a success as I've etched away so much material that they have essentially disintegrated. Still, for my first complex test etch I'm really happy with how it looks, now I just need to see if it all fits. More later, although probably not much later as I won't be able to stop myself from having a play with these.
