  1. points rodding is a good bit of work..
  2. GSR 800

    OO Works J15

    I've just noticed the smokebox is missing it's handle. It has the wheel, but no handle
  3. Agreed. Many would overlook such a loco, but her importance for modelling Irish steam cannot be understated.
  4. As in different engines would have different types of rivets, or the same engine would have different types?
  5. Back to Work I've had quite a long break from modelling locomotives (nearly 2 years!) Mainly to focus on ships. I tend to lean one way or another, but never both at once. Now with a sufficient battlefleet to protect against. ..er....cheeky buggers....it's time to get back into the Kettles of CIE. Quite some time ago I purchased an N15 class locomotive with the intention of converting to 402 Being myself, I didn't start taking photos till I had most of the job done. Chassis were terrible on her, so something must be done about that. Nonetheless, off came the body One sees the obvious differences between the locomotives. First tackled was the Firebox. Round on the N15, it was a Belpaire type on the 400s. A piece of brass, bent to shape, along with some glue and filler was used. The Firebox was filed slightly, to make the corners more rounded. Splashers were stolen off some poor old airfix kit, filed down, and fitted Then it was off to the paint shop, for a lick of green. Looking somewhat like a crazy idea Bullied would have, 402 will have to make do with the tender chassis she's lying on for now
  6. Tasty stuff there Noel, busy as usual at Tara Junction.
  7. She's a little gem John. Must get back to building myself...
  8. Anyone else had an outage last night? More maintenance needed?
  9. Of course we have Irish Pictorial Weekly now While we don't have the Minister for Hardship, it's still pretty funny "Some towns could do with a bit of a bombin'. Mullingar"
  10. They should put Peacemaker under Founding Father Although then people might suspect that IRM has to turned into a Mafia of Railway Enthusiasts....
  11. I think I have it somewhere JB,I will search my archives..
  12. Arghh! The inaccuracy! It burns!
  13. There must have been a paradox or something, or he briefly entered an alternate universe where someone had answered his question
  14. Or the smoke generator when the Crossley engine sound is engaged. If it doesn't cause you to hallucinate it isn't authentic
  15. I'd say everyone is still recovering from the horror show that is The month after Christmas January:the longest month
  16. Well lads, before you buy anything, you should know Ali express has a rep for selling rip off crappy stuff,like Nike and Canterburys. I know they aren't loco companies..but still
  17. That looks like the work of one of the lads here
  18. Nelson, a man of your talent, would put me to shame,should you build one. The painting was actually fairly simple, just slap on battleship grey, and wash the deck with a sort of teak color. I haven't gotten around to painting the boats or the AA guns yet, but I will get there. Eventually. And it is intentionally that grainy. I'm not THAT bad at taking photos. Jesus, put your pitchforks away:dig:
  19. Hms Hood,ready for Inspection Next project, Hms King George V in 1/350
  20. Looking good David! And that engine shed area..
