A further welcome from me too. New blood is always welcome of course - but of the fairer flavour especially so ... this will keep a few of the characters around here in check ... :lol: Great little loco', that's an impressive piece of modelling and will stand you in good stead. Just means we'll have...

Juergen ...

An inspired piece of modelling - looks great and carries a solid aire of purpose. As does the figure: I often look into the back of your picture posts to see what else has appeared in your menagerie of characters.

Well done - great job.

Very good - very neat. Much better than "Top Yard" [which still languishes]. The thing I found frustrating was after all the effort and care laying, electrifying and making operable the trackwork on "Top Yard" as soon as I tried to "landscape" it - it all stopped workin...

Thanks for taking the pic's and posting them - appreciate it as I could easily become heavily involved in the Bus scene. Although I personally would of appreciated a few pic's of the Tour buses and Coaches. I actually have two of the Revell Routemasters - when in God's name I think I'm going to find...

Simon .... You were right! I spent last night and most of today stripping down, cleaning, oiling, greasing and re-assembling the lathe. And I must admit you wouldn't recognise it now at all. It looks beautiful all polished and shiny - ooo! Shiny! And yes there were shim strips inside the slide assem...

A bit of good fortune .......... Tales of the bench!

Been a while since I actually posted here, so apologies for that. Modelling has taken a back seat recently - just life getting in the way, but I do check the board every day if only fleetingly. Anyhoo ... I am posting now to "show off" a little bit as I'm quite pleased with myself .... for...

Excellent Peter ............... after seeing both your and Gordon's work with this foam technique I think I'm going to give it a try over my paper chads. It certainly carries a convincing look to it - colours well too it seems.

Just a top-up update.

Gains more character by the post Ian. The details are really beginning to establish a realism. Although it's starting to gain an unnerving resemblance to "Trap-1" from the old "Morris engine works" - I spent many a dreamy hour in there when I were a lad. For us old un's there was...

Or the "Bog - Nettie Po - Crapper - S**t House - Lav'" Or my personal favourite - "Thunderbox"!! An amusing project Ian, the Brit's being the masters of "toilet humour" I'm expecting great things from you. Interesting start, look forward to see where this one takes you???

Ian - only got time for a quick response but It appears you're describing the thinking behind Top and Bottom Yard, they were two modules built with dimensions that technically should be able to be joined together for exhibition purposes. Obviously both me and Gordon have gotten bogged down with othe...

Ian............. I understand - didn't mean to put you under pressure. And I really do know what you mean, the Top Yard has been languishing for more than a couple of years it seems already.

Well ................ finally, an update of sorts.

Just to let you know that the "deckhand" figures will be made availble in 1/24. Still waiting for availablility date but should be fairly soon. :D Brilliant - Let me know when, and if it suits it might be worth doing something with the shipping. Excellent intermediary skills. 8)
