Multi tasking

26 Jul

Recent work has been a bit sporadic, summer sun, exhibitions and milestone birthdays getting priority. No major projects have been worked on but many smaller or part finished work has been progressed.

So far, the track cleaner bought at a Perth from Lanarkshire Models has been built and tested. This will help keep the track clean at shows without too much intrusive hand action.


We have also completed the final colliery buildings – the pit head complex which sits around the winding gear tower. The tower is the Bachmann Scenecraft for the time being but I will be starting the etched brass Wrightlines kit shortly. Final painting will take place this weekend with installation on the layout in a couple of weeks time ready for ExpoEM North in September.



And finally, I have started the prep work on my rake of 6 Hudson Tipper wagons, etched nickel silver kits from R T Models. So far I have punched out all of the rivets in the hopper bodies using my drop weight riveting tool from London Road Models
