That looks really good.

Those dapol kits i cannot quite fathom. Some remind me of the items airfix offered when i was young (so many years ago). Did airfix sell the moulds to dapol or was it the other way around?

Not had a hobbies catalogue for a few years (thanks wh smith for not stocking them) but i know they used to list a whole load of dapol items.

They were originally called rose bud kitmaster kits they were sold to airfix and then onto dapol

That's a nice build Peter - although it does look odd seeing a train without tracks.
