  1. GSR 800

    new layout

    Have you seen these Bren? From resources..
  2. Looks excellent so far David. I suppose I couldn't change your mind about using old loco frames for the turntable... Doesn't really matter though, considering how awesome the layout will be when finished.
  3. GSR 800

    new layout

    Methinks you may have gotten inspiration to build this while constructing the MF...
  4. I....(collapses,such as the awesomeness of this project)
  5. Certainly for the GM diesels.. steamwise a farish royal scot could be modified to look like an 800
  6. All that's left is the clean up and painting..both will take a long time Here are some close ups of the boat deck. View from Bow.. And stern. Thanks for looking
  7. It seems the curse of the upside down photos continue...
  8. Fantastic stuff Nelson..the NCC is starting to grow on me.. In And I like your sheet plan, simple but genius.
  9. Finally, this morning, the Hood arrived after a LONG wait It was worth it though.. Multiple different sprues.. Firstly, she is BIG .I am building her in the waterline version, but here she is full hull, for comparison to Dreadnought..you get what I mean.. And then the building frenzy began..not a bad days work methinks Thanks for looking

  11. After the third rivet, it all started getting a bit blurry....I think I need to lie down for a while.. Everything going sideways..
  12. Ahh..my eyes! 35 or 36 by my count...(starts counting again)
  13. I don't Richie, unfortunately. Des might... Anyway, here's a close up of my 552s smokebox. I usually wouldn't get this close, but this is important... Meanwhile I'm buchering a GWR county class, to try and turn it into a beautiful swan of a 400... Right now it's a really ugly duckling....
  14. Give us a look, you might need a break from all the rivet counting....you start hallucinating after a while....
  15. CIE, certainly, but the GSR maybe not as much. However, it was the GNR that started the pop head rivets on their locos, for the sole reason the were a hell of a lot simpler to take out than the countersunk rivets. Even the 800s originally had countersunk rivets. In my opinion, despite being a pain in the a^$<'*#$ to model, The (three thousand:p) rivets are a major charictestic feature of Irish locos in the CIE period
  16. Ah! I see what you mean now! My mistake...
  17. Only one way to settle this..
  18. You sure mate? Look pretty even to me...
  19. Apparently, the radar that "detected" the train actually detected ice patterns... However the area they are digging in could still hold a train, as there are several tunnels coming from the castle nearby, which Hitler planned as a secret base ...
  20. Here it is.. A little bit railway related.....
  21. At Raheny, I got one of Leslie's new H vans Came home, sat down at the bench, opened it up, and inspected the (excellent detail) Decide to make a start at it, look up at my shelf: no glue(feck!) Anyway, here are some pics of the kit. The pics dont do it justice The chassis.. The brake lever casting... End body castings.. The body sides.. The roof.. Looks like an excellent kit, and very well detailed. Well done to Leslie and Provincial models=D
  22. Leslie already does them..
