Nellie's on Her Travels.

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

Now I dont know if this is some sort of record, but my Smallbrook Nellie is a bit of a gad-about!

Built mainly in the UK, Nearly finished in Nigeria, and now in Florida, on her way to British Columbia! Where at sometime in the future final finish will take place....

I couldn't help but think that either she was exceptionally well packed to have survived or you were lucky with her handling.

She looks great on the lorry.
