    OO Layout - To be Named

    Nice once Paul on the Transfers tip. Must check them out. Could not follow the Fox Transfers site at all , Very confusing but good decals. Might try some Cambrian kits next especially the Trouts and 'Borail' wagons which would look cool with a load of rails on them http://cambrianmodels.co.uk/srwagons.html

    Hi Noel, Thanks for the comment, The A-10 is foam, Has two 550mm fans in it, Bit underpowered tbh, Has retractable U/C which is poorly designed so I usually belly land it. Great sound and I installed Nav Lights so looks even cooler at dusk.

    One of the things I liked about Irish Railways is most things had to be kit built, It gave a bit of satisfaction to see my Models flying around me bit of Test Track every now and then. Kinda Made and not paid. Nowadays the rise in prices of RTR Stuff especially uk stuff has made me look at the UK Kit scene and I started off by treating myself to a Parkside Dundas CCT Van. Now if you ever assembled an airfix kit you can build one of these. Plasticbody and chassis, Metal Buffers and wheels. I Added the Torpedo vents from Lanarkshire models as the kit did not come with them which was a Pain and it also did not come with Transfers so these were ordered from Modelmaster so with all the extras vents and decal I will but a few more of these down the line for a parcel train. The pipes at the rear are from a 141 pipe set and the 3 link coupling from smiths, I took it off of the metal hook a glued it in place. The white lines are from Evergreen Strip glued inside the flush glazing. The few piccy are where it is at presently. Test running was impressive after a change to Hornby wheelset as the Scale wheels sat into the point frogs. Overall Well chuffed with this.

    Georges Workbench

    Hi all, With the Winter weather finally over it is back out to the shed, the cost of heating the thing has been slightly prohibitive and it aint good for Painting so evenings in alongside the fire were the order of the day. anyhow some work in progress has restarted and the 1st one is a D class in CIE marking in the Black Livery. Transfers were from Silverfox as I had bought these yonks back. the Black and white stripes are from Studio Scale Models. Some extra boxes were made from plasticard and the ladders and other bits not needed were taken off. I have some Vent panels that I stuck on over the Sanded off Original Louvers. It is basically a Bachmann 08 in disguise! I had painted it and then wisely decided to relook at some of the few piccys of the loco and noticed a brake wheel housing at the cab end so I had to add that in and then respray it again. The Small things matter!! Heres a few pics for review. I still need to make new steps for the Chassis as the were solid affairs like a steam loco and not ladder so thats the next job. ps the transfers are still drying in these shots so have not settled down completely
