Nice kit to work on ... very delicate though!  Don't think I will be motorising this one!

Here is the older work horse of the yet-to-be-named oil exploration company, this one is motorised & looks pretty neat when it is running (I had it fitted as part of my last layout)

That already looks very good. It just needs some weathering to make up for the shiny plastic finish and bring it up to the very high standard of your other work. 8-)

This was my 3rd rig up to try and join the 3 very delicate (and one tiny) components together without glue preventing the joint from rotating.... another "all hail" for Blu-Tack!

Blu-Tack is indeed wonderful. Alas, I have not seen it on sale, here.

Maybe a pack could find its way into the guard compartment on the inaugural railtour from Perthshire  :)

The almost finished article.... needs the wireline etc. attached... but will wait until it has a plentiful oilfield to tap into before I do that... and also needs to get the weathering treatment

.... and it does fully rotate.... but it feels too delicate to entrust that to motorisation.



(Apologies for the poor lighting, the room I currently use is a bit on the dark side & the flash on the camera is too severe)

Very nice work. One of the "Castle Estates" LWB SR design Ferry Wagons and / or double bolster timber carrying wagons may well be worked to Inverness to pick up some especially fine logs! 8-)

Some long negotiations with a former director of Nabisco who rescued this coach when the Welwyn Garden City site closed in 2008 led to it's donation to the PRPS for use as an engineers base



The new recipients have eagerly embarked on its refurbishment

Very nice. I had two of these little coaches. One in GWR livery (hand-painted quite well) and another which underwent the grey undercoat then light blue (for "Castle Estates" -- used on the branch line) spray painting treatment. I look forward to seeing how yours ends up.
