Nice wings. I've never seen a modelled airfield next to a railway...

hi,

a model of an aviation museum would be excellent.  you could show some of an airport / taxiway / runway on the back scene.  the aviation museum itself could literally just be a hanger and 4 or 5 aircraft parked up on concrete or grass.  there are quite a few corgi model aircraft to choose from now as well as kits.

anyway my DC-3 won't actually be on my layout, it will be on a shelf somewhere!

While there seems to be a dearth of Southern Railway RTR locos available on the secondhand market at the moment, the gap seems to have been filled very well by the LMS. My latest 'wohoo!' addition to the stud is this lovely little 0-6-0 Fowler 4F.

Can't wait to give it a good run and see what it's capable of.

GEM is an old old producer of kits (George E Mellor if I remember correctly) in OO, TT, and N. Various white metalkits of differing quality. The 4F is in some ways better than the RTR one but only if you are good at building them. This one looks to have been extremely well made.

I have part of one somewhere. The boiler and various other bits are the scrap around the back of the engine shed on Planby.

The GEM and Fleetline range is now owned by Lytchett Manor Models who have so far re-released the 28XX, L&Y Aspinall 0-6-0ST (lovely little loco), SR Z class 0-8-0 tank, J39 and the LMS/BR 7F. The S&D 7F is supposed to be re-appearing at TINGS.

They are also having a sale of signs

They did ask for email orders by last weekend on the Yahoo N gauge group last week.

Has anybody noticed their postal address  is the old Farish Poole factory site, recently moved there.

It does look as though it's in very good condition. There are just a few tiny scratches in the paintwork that will need to be touched up, but that's all. It was a bit reluctant to run on the short piece of test track I have at the moment, but I'm hoping that a good run around a test oval after I've moved house will wake it up.

The GEM and Fleetline range is now owned by Lytchett Manor Models who have so far re-released the 28XX, L&Y Aspinall 0-6-0ST (lovely little loco), SR Z class 0-8-0 tank, J39 and the LMS/BR 7F. The S&D 7F is supposed to be re-appearing at TINGS.

I have the SR Z Class, too. Like the 7F, that goes on a Graham Farish 2-8-0 chassis, although with the 2 removed of course. I'd love to have the 7F in S&D black, but building it is certainly out of my league for a while.

That looks really good Peter; as Alan says, better than the RTR version! You are going to have an impressive loco stable by the time you move....

Well I'm up to nineteen locos already and the move is pencilled in for the end of the month. I might already have managed impressive, or is nineteen still in the beginner's class?  :hmmm:

You are not classed as Elite until you have at least one display case full of locos and then the rest that you purchase on whims which you don't really need start to pile up in the foam storage boxes until Lidl bring out the next series of display boxes  :hmmm:

I mean what the heck does my 1950's layout want with five class 170's, one Cl 56, Once Cl67 and three Class 66's... They looked cool so I bought em :D

I can see that I'm a mere beginner, a humble disciple kneeling at the feet of far greater beings  :D
