Your right mustang theres no decals for the one I will be doing or no painting guide either, but with the showmans engine theres a decal for the sides of the roof and a small piece of paper with some paint references on.

Major blast from the past, remember seeing these years ago .Never saw one made, look like they have good potential to be nice model with some time and effort. (is this, this year's dark horse :think: )

Hi Mustang, I made a start on it just after crimbo, freed all the parts from the sprues, joined the boiler together and masked up for the red and yellow bands, this is where it all went wrong, instead of masking tape I used car 0.5mm car lining tape unfortunately it didnt work as the top coat of paint got underneath so it all needs striping back and redoing plus I managed to lose a part so at the moment it wont be done anytime soon, Dont tell anyone but I have just started another model, just stripping off loads of chrome, more to be revealed later ;)

I decided to add a wooden floor as seen in some pics I saw in a magazine, first I added a square of plastic to level the kit parts out

The wheel spokes were very difficult to remove from the sprues, in the end I used a micro saw
