    Double height Beet Wagon kit is now available

    That's the barytes after they were modified for use as spoil wagons with the removal of the lifting gear for the body sides. The stenciled test markings on the wagons suggests the photo was taken in the mid '00s...

    Good shot of the wagon and the barytes wagons alongside. Not sure if that's barytes ore, looks more like ballast. Any idea of the year that was taken?

    OO Works J15

    The first one is holding a rabbit in the air. The second is playing with his super-soaker. The third and fourth are playing the famous old shovel pointing game.

    The two on the right would be clean - they are actually off-duty and are boogieing in a night club.

    It's soooo tempting to say that they're the "wrong livery", as their overalls should be filthy!!!! 😁

    Outstanding Eoin, your work never ceases to amaze me.

    And Hatton's are bringing one out soon for a mere £750... Am sure there will be plenty of takers, but Eoin's model shows that the journey can be so much more than the destination! As for livery, it is his customer's choice of course, bit for me, growing up by the East Coast mainline, it would have to be Brunswick green. All it needs now will be a rake of ten Gresley coaches...

    I have been looking around for figures. Some are better than others with regards to the fine detail and painting. Here is a pic of the Bachmann set. 36-047.

    Now that is a stunningly impressive model and associated talent bringing it together!! Well done Eoin.

    Quick update: Dropped a note to Shapeways pointing out the broken parts on the model, and in fairness to them they responded quickly. In fairness, you cannot complain with that level of service - I'm very impressed. Looking forward to take two!!

Tender trims being installed with cyano glue Water access hatch and tender top parts being soldered on- 80deg pre soldered to brass parts and the white metal 70deg soldered on Tender top epoxied in White metal crew passage roof going on, using epoxy on this one as to close to the plastic for soldering, brass handrails and other fittings are epoxied to Helping hands while glue sets Tender cab parts- coal shoot, grill & crew door. The grill required a few rivets punched out More fittings going on- all cusps have been removed by filing on these parts in all photos Break handles, brackets and rear tender lamp irons drilled, cleaned up and brass rods prepared All epoxied on Rear lamp irons on and rear steps being prepared Steps folded up and the coal irons will be chemically blackened Steps and handrails epoxied on More tender cab handles, brackets n hooks being prepared Tender cab complete Brass fittings installed in coal area, all were epoxied in Corridor connection n hook next, the connector required some serious filing down on the sides to fit between the steps Gentile persuasion and its on- just with blu-tak for the moment Wheels off again for the last parts-guard irons, I kept this until last as they stick down below the frames and would have made all the above construction more difficult and they may have been damaged in the process- 80deg soldered on Tender is now complete- well except for painting n lining Eoin Now lets have a look at the whole thing Its just about ready for painting, some filling and adjustments required and I'm down to the last 3 packets of parts- the crew, the signs, and a bag of coal.....

    That would never do! (Imagine a J15 in NIR "red bull", or an ICR in lined NCC maroon..................................................................................!!)

    Hattons nightmare

    Sorry to hear you've been having IT issues JB on Hattons web site. Amongst others I primarily use Hattons and Peters Spares web sites, but I found Peters Spares site rather poor as they cannot save a shopping basket beyond a http session (i.e. instead they save it as an unfulfilled order - daft). I have found Hattons web site one of the best in the UK. Their service and prompt delivery is excellent. I couldn't recommend them highly enough, especially their low postage charges to ROI. Their range is more main stream and may not be as broad as Peters Spares who tend to have those less popular more specialist items. Perhaps they had a server glitch today, but also worth checking your web browser settings are normal and moderately up to date (i.e. within 5 years).

    Aaaaarrrggghhh! Looks ghastly.......to make! (Or have made!) At least mine's less complicated by far.

    I would certainly intend the point rodding to be static, not working!

    points rodding is a good bit of work..

    Interesting, Luke - that appears to make perfect sense. Any other thoughts, anyone?
