Hil Lads,

 

Manage to grab a few more hours now that the kids are going to bed earlier so these are currently on the not much work bench at the moment. Should be kicking into 10 more bubbles next week, 2 MIR 071s and 2 huns..

 

The ballast wagons are shapeways and dapol chassis. Heavily weighed down the perform nicely, Even my Merchany Navy can pull em just about!! The dapol couplers are certainly not the best.

Next up are the Familier MIR bubbles, There are the Resin Chassis versions, Just as about to finish them I discovered that the Waterslide decals were in fact Stickers for the Irish Cement Logos. Sneaky job to do that as you just could not use em, Decals were grabbed from Studio Scale Models range.

Next up are a couple of Buses. A Ryan bus KS, A KC and a Van Hool from Jim Poots. Great kits these are in all fairness! Love doing them

I concur. The buses look the business. Particularly the decals and paint job. The sight of the beige one and I'm flash backing to a visit to dee'azoooo in the 80's.

 

Who did the decals? Class job.

 

Came with the bus Des, Sunrise Now do loads of Bus stuff. Will be in touch for a Number plate for the KD ol stock.

Just trying to get these done for the IRRS show happening in Cork Monday night in the Metropole Hotel. These are MIR white metal Flats , Not a clinical as SSM effort for sure. Weighty though!! Every thing soldered on this bar the brass bearings for the wheel axles which were super glued on. Primer is on now so coupling hooks got on tonight if I don't fall asleep after marching around town today with the other 10k of people.

finished the ol Flats, Test run as well and happy with em!! Found some Resin ones in the loft earlier so might make a go of those for comparison!

 

The ol MIR Decals did their usual trick and disappeared into the Either when I put them into tepid water, It was like dealing with some 1000 year old Parchment, All the numbers just Crumbled up, Nearly took me an hour to put 12 decals one!!

Bit of a Retro Feel going on this month, Jut working on two MIR 071s in Resin and MIR 121 in white Metal, About 8 hrs so far spent on the 121 to get to this stage, All soldered together, I Need to drill out the Aperture for the LEDS on the 121 and install LEDs and DCC into the 071. Hope to have these done before the End of Feb.

 

The 071 has hand rails scabbed off of Murphys 071 when I repainted some of them into Grey Scheme!! Stuff always come in Handy eventually.
