Sorry Steve,

You started a perfectly sensible thread, then a couple of jokers pollocked it up.

I've been a bit quiet recently but things have still been happening. I've now got a proper work area for CAD and modelling and have been moving things about and out of storage over the Christmas period.

I received four Peco 9' wheelbase PO wagons for Christmas along with some other bits and pieces which I've been meaning to build ever since. Yesterday, I went over to the Stevenage exhibition and found that the NGS had found some old mouldings for the MR outside frame van kit. Three of these were quickly snapped up by me as I've been looking for some for ages!

Anyway, the excitement of finding the MR kits got me into building mode for a few hours this afternoon the result of which is below:



Once I've got a spraying area set up, I'll give them a coat or two of paint.

Oh, that's a piece of Finetrax in the picture (the other half of my Christmas present!).  :)

Back to some CAD work and something a little bit different...



An articulated twin converted by the GNR from six wheel corridor coaches. Apparently this was the first such conversion the GNR undertook (which was continued by the LNER). All were withdrawn by the end of March 1947.

Now all I have to do is design the underframes, internal detail and figure out if I can make a floating articulation system using cams!!!
