    I picked up the N scale Bachmann version at a model shop in Edinburgh, Scotland back in 2003. It is also a very nice locomotive. I posted this photo last weekend in the Photo Fun thread.

    Yep! All done in one piece nothing to put together! But it was fun to paint!

    That N gauge pannier is adorable! I love those little British tank locos a lot!

    Not a physical, but a digital workbench; although I have a good amount of plans sitting in front of me. This is a model of the power truck for my Green Diamond project. My intent is to 3D print them. The wheels are just stand-ins to make sure the clearance is good, but the actual version will be powered with manufactured components. Next up will be a gear train to fit in here. I think I will only power the front truck and leave the articulated one as a dummy. The drop equalizers and bearings are separate pieces from the main frame, my hopes being to have them sprung.

    On my workbench right now is a Southern Railway Hogshead Boxcar. I am building it from the Ambroid kit instructions, but out of styrene, not wood. This model reflects its appearance late in life. The model will be sans-roofwalk and full height ladders. As built, they had roll-up doors. The Ambroid kit has these same doors, but I chose to model the replacement plug door. This is the only major departure from the kit plans. The roll up was almost immediately disliked, so the Southern had the cars modified. Almost everything on this car is scratchbuilt, from the plug door to the coupler boxes. I had to bend my own grab irons, since the exterior posts are not a standard 18”. The car still needs brake equipment and end details to be finished, along with some other things. 8E321813-8D05-425D-95E4-B2762953DA0E.jpeg image.jpg

    That some serious scratchbuilding! Really like all the detail. I had forgotten about these very unique cars.
