    nice stuff there, Love the brick work. This might be a dumb question but for the slopes at each the ends of the Roof is there a Formula on how the exact sized Triangle is cut to shape or is it trial and error?

    The Mojo is still fine and I am ploughing through some 20ft Flats I have had for 6 years I'd say in the Stash. There was a Mix of 4 Resins and 2 sturdy white Metal Jobbies. 2 Came with plastic containers and the Remainder had Beer kegs on them. These are from MIR and the Resin ones are a bit poor as the frames are like Bananas but can be straightened out. I have one more to complete with just the brake rodding, gear and pipes to stick on. A test run of them signal a big problem with the Wheel Set provided. They just would not stay on the track m Maybe a combination of such a light wagon and Scale wheels, the Code 75 did not like them of visa versa. I ended up putting some Hornby Wagon wheel Sets in and hey presto they not negotiate the point work. I did get a great kick of seeing these rumble along the 10ft bit of track I have live after the graft to finish em. The plain containers needed to be built and painted and these will be CIE Orange. bit more to do on the KC's the Bus Eireann Orange is on and will be masked shortly and then the green will go on. Also finished the Decals on the Van Hool and sealed with a coat of Gloss. A Satin coat will now be put on that model. Al clad Satin as the Humbrol stuff is gone to pot.

    Cheers Rich. I'd have to tackle frames and wheel set up again for me Bandon tank and finally get that running so these picture are definately a kick in the Arse. I might get a Quartering jig though to help me with that. This stuff is the good few steps above Meccano but I was only mucking about with that last week and forgot how therapeutic it was!. Just heard one of my friends is after winning a gold Medal in IPMS Scale Model World in Telford for a Model Car today, thing is he only started modelling a few months back and produces some excellent stuff. I seem to be threading Water!!
