Bulleid Q1: First look in colour

So things are going well with the unwrapping and texturing of the Q1 and over the next few days I'm going to be posting pictures of the various liveries, the cab and tender, and later the accompanying stock as well.

So working in a historical manner, we're kicking off with the original Southern livery from 1942.

C11 is seen here, fitted with the hydrostatic lubricator and therefore lacking the mechanical lubricator and arm normally seen on and above the left-hand front wheel. C1 to C28 were built with these, C29 to C40 being built later and having the mechanical lubricator "factory fitted".

Next time it'll be the British Railways "clean" version, with their various modifications, and covering both pre and post 1956 logos.
