Your figures looking good Nick :D

Have you thought of adding breast pockets (patch style) to take a bit of the plainness off his front. Pockets could also be added on the thigh and his backside.

Bit of an update on progress. Pat's wagons now have all their couplings and..........something to pull them when finished. http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a396/davewestall/Gnatterbox/PB02.jpg I really like the Bachmann Gas mechanicals as a basis for conversion. http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a3...

Hi Marc, I've been told that the UK '$=£' pricing is due yet again to our 'friend' the taxman. Dealers have to pay import tax where as private individuals don't. That is on top of the usual 'Vodka and Tonic' at 17.5% Incidentally 'The Favourite Spot' seems to be changing over to a 'Buy-it-now' mode ...

The 13th ......but at least it's not a Friday!

Yes the next meeting is on 13th February but don't let that put you off.

As usual the Host and Hostess are the indefatigable Mr & Mrs Rockley Bottom at the usual time of 19.30hrs :D

Turn up and see what Ralph has found on the market this month :!:

It's a pity we can't see the other side of the green loco above.
I am intrigued by how they get the drive to the car differential unit. :?

That's a good start you've made Carlo. The stub points are great and I love the loco.

Hi Hans, I have the relevant issues of NG&I. I haven't looked at them for a while but I'll look for them when I look for the Watercress loco plans for Henry (Catweasel). I'll see how many pages would need to be scanned and get back to you. As I said before though I don't know how much redesign o...

The best sound system I have heard for a NG railway has to be Otto Schouwstra's. A large bank balance is a pre-requisite if you wish to purchase a ready built one :( but the first few issues of NG&IR had component lists and circuit diagrams to build your own. How much Otto has improved on the NG...

In our local model shop today I came across some modern JCB diggers etc. by Joal which are 1/25 scale but for a lot more than £1 :(

Very nice models, if that's your thing, but I'd much prefer a 1/24 grey fergy.

That is one very nice figure and in a laid-back pose you seldom if ever see in a model. Excellent paint job.

You can just imagine him sitting there spinning a good yarn.

Hope the fahrpanzer has good brakes or the gun is recoilless. Good modelling though.
