  1. Hi guy's I do think that there is a market for a 22k as it's the most common train that people see and might appeal to the younger generation and draw them into the hobby . I'd love to get my hands on another class 170 and there are a few things that i would improve on and tidy it up plus i still have to add directional lighting . I'm not a experienced model maker and there are a'lot of highly talented people on this form that would be more capable to do a much better job than i could but that's one of the things i really enjoy and get the most satisfaction from is scratch building or altering something etc. Enda
  2. Hi guys, Here's a Bachmann 170, that I did myself last year. Very pleased how it turned out.

  5. Hi guys I have just weathered one of my 121s as I find the IRs are very bright in my eyes and I think it's a big difference and brings a model to life.6 months ago if you had said that I would be weathering a new model I would have laughed at you but I'd encourage anyone to give it a go. Thank god I had no issues with damage etc in transit. They are a fantastic model and we have a lot to be thankful for as modelers. Stay safe and hopefully we can get to some shows next year. Enda
