Got fed up trying to build Heljan's AWFUL version of a trestle bridge...  :(  Wish i paid a bit more to get the walthers one...

This could go in the angry thread, but i'm a firm believer of 'don't get mad - get EVEN !'  :evil:

So, unless anybody wants this twisted rendition of one of America's finest wooden structures..... It's going to landfill !

For the rest of this evening, i will be looking lovingly at my awesomsly build, stained, real, wooden deck bridge instead.  :-*





If it's got rails... you have my full, undivided attention - Steam, diesel and electric, 'tis all good !

A shame about the trestle bridge.  It looked fine to me.

Painting the roofs of my VEP. Finally got some Precision Paints "roof dirt" from Harburn Hobbies at the weekend.
The colour is spot on, but I'll reserve judgement on the finish until it's 100% dry.
Two rails good. Three better.

Hi,

Closed up the shed for the winter. All engines are in the house where it's nice and cosy. I'll still do my modelling/painting/scratchbuilding in the house, but I don't venture out to the shed very much. Roll on Easter. :smiley-laughing: :wave:

Hi Tank,

Yup. I usually do the bulk of my writting during the winter months, but as I'm not doing that now I may crack open the door a couple of months early. :wave:

The pic of the bridge does look good, but trust me... you know when you build a kit and think 'thats rubbish - i wish i hadn't bought this...' well, thats how i felt and no matter what did it just wouldn't fit the way the instructions said it would.  >:(

So it's in the bin where it belongs !
