G'day Nikki

Is there any branch of modelling that you can't do well :?:

You seem to have nailed the loco's, buildings and now the rolling stock.

Looking forward to seeing the layout and how it progresses.

(by the way isn't it a pity that the axle boxes are hidden under the overhang of the wagon ?)

Have a good day.

Hi Nik'...

Good job on the wagon, and of course fantastic that you have the where-with-all to post the progress pic's, often the bestest and juiciest part of the build for many modellers. Allows them to see what they should of done you see?
You might also be a natural as you seem to grasp quite readily the fact that in GN15 world most everything is built "under the arches" or "shadetree" for our colonial cousins: ergo if you take a problem - think about it, solve it , and build it! It probably is about as prototypical as you're going to get - warts'n'all.

So, quite an entrance you're making - keep it up. As for my part ... you're taking up the slack left by my lack of modelling lately.

You go girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
