I've had a resin whitcomb body in my ToDO box for longer than I remember! Looks like an opportunity to blow the dust off it!

I've also got some Wehrmacht " Afrikakorps palm tree" decal sets, so there are possibilities!

GRamodels have a good range of British and Axis armour in 1/150

There is also this useful book:

 and also the Military thread on NGF!)


Yep, I have that book, it is well worth the read and feeds the imagination.

Where did you get a Whitcomb body shell from? I'd love to hold of one of them.

Hi everybody,
The OMWB area seems to be a little quiet, so i thought I'd thought i'd stick the latest pictures of my Military Train up.

Enjoy...

True, But at such a small scale, I don't think many people will mind.    ;)

Hi everyone. Just finished my latest wagons. Had a go at washing and weathering this time.


(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

These are RMMS wagons on N Gauge Society plateback bogies.The body is a tiny bit on the modern for the 1940's/50's But I think they look the part.

I'm loving your work Bob. I think the various steam locos and the class 08 look excellent.
Thanks for sharing. :NGaugersRule:

Sorry for not getting back sooner.
This is a very interesting locomotive. It looks like the Whitcomb 65 ton Diesel. Many of these loco's came to Britain painted in a desert livery and would be put to work as a run in often on the GWR. A large proportion were painted green when they where no longer required in North Africa and instead went to France just after D-day and some to Italy.
The number of these locomotives were:

7961-90   1943
8120-47   1944
8400-47   1944
8800-2     1944
8803-11   1945

Hello everyone, more examples of the types of rolling stock that I intend to use:

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)
This was a Minitrix wagon that had been badly painted and I have put slightly more suitable bogies on, which I think give it a more realistic appearance.

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)
And everyone loves the highly adaptable Peco Tarpaulin Wagons.   :)

And ofcause there is the Brakedown Train that gets shunted about the yard....

Hi People, I decided I wanted a German steam engine to run on my Middle Eastern railway.
From what I read, it doesn't look like to Wehrmacht sent any steam engines over to Egypt, only a few diesels.
Having a little rummage in my bits draw I came up with this:

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

Turkey declared war on Germany in 1944 when it was pretty obvious Germany was loosing the war. Although this is a DRB class 50, I'm pretending that it is the Turkish Railways (TCDD) 56.0 which in fact was really a DRB class 44.
I've painted it black in parts to make it look more like a TCDD, although I haven't quite finished it, there are a few parts I must top up on.

Rob.

Hi Guys.
OMWB seems to be a little quiet So I thought I would show you Some of my models of my Palestine Railways stuff for my Middle Eastern project.

(I am sorry for the bad light i my images, My home is a little dark and outside is not much better.

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)
Palestine Railway K Class (Fictional locomotive but similar to the H class)

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)
Former Egyptian State Railway wagon for cotton transport. (Scratchbuilt on Peco 15' chassis.)

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)
Camel Wagon.

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)
Israeli Railways van for transportation of cardboard. A little modern but I liked it as it was quite a unique design.

Rob.

 :hellosign:

Over the last few weeks i've been working on a little idea.
Who remembers those  Lima N gauge Plymouth shunters? (Right now I can can imagine a quite a number of people closing their eyes and and slapping their foreheads....)
Anyway moving on,I have had one for a number of years and because it is so wide, It hasn't had much use.
I bought a few bits from N Brass and made it a bit more workman like and I also made an attempt at weathering it. I'm quite please with the result and it should blend into my desert layout quite nicely.
