  3. The water tower and fortress coal stage is now largely complete. As the photos hopefully show, the additional work since last time comprises the doors and louvred window - the latter, as predicted being a real pain to make. What you see is the mark 3 version. I used a piece of UPVC pipe and then cut 7mm wide strips for each louvre, separating them with micro strip. The coal doors are simple enough & I used some leftovers from the SE Finecast turntable kit for the top rollers. Most of the time though was spent on painting. It took quite a while to match the render to colour photos I h

  11. Evening chaps. whilst off Recovering over the last six weeks I managed to nearly get this done. One of the last kits I bought before I left Marks Models some 5 years ago! I picked up an etched set and a laser cut deck which is the dog you know what. Altogether a nice little model but a lot of Scratch built items to give it that big ship look I will set this into the foam and make a sea dio for it eventually.

  14. The 1912 Strike was the 1st national coal strike in the UK which would have affected the coal supply to the Irish railway companies that used steam coal mined in Great Britain rather than anthracite mined at Castlecomer. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_coal_strike_of_1912 . The strike appears to have been successful with the Government awarding a minimum wage to the miners, previous strikes and lockouts in South Wales lead to a lot of bitterness and distrust towards Churchill and the Liberal Government because of the use of police and the army in breaking up the Tonypandy riots.

  17. Christmas Projects As mentioned previously, I like to have some modelling to do over Christmas, because [unless you lie Soaps or Reality TV] there ain't a lot going on the gogglebox. The first couple of pictures show some experiments with conifers. My thinking is Belmullet needs a few to act as wind breaks, not least around the turntable. The area looks pretty treeless on Google Earth, so a few planted trees won't come amiss. The ideas are straight out of Gordon's second book on trees and the models are built around some tapered dowel, with the structures made from either industri
