Here's a few images of some items currently on the workbench.


EMU Dream Factory  :)


Ex Class 501 - "Strawberry Hill Beast" - DC electric super shunter


Currently at the "Will it work?" stage - Class 333. The nose end will really need some of Bob's CAD magic for this one to be a goer.

Not exactly an EMU but something useful for when they are "off the juice"

Just as an aside, where do you get the roof vents from?
I now know where to get the revised floor plates, to convert the Farish Mark 2 coaches from the air con layout to the pressure ventilated layout (Ian Stoate Models, item 198)
However, that leaves the roof incorrect

Many thanks!  :)

For roof vents and other Mk1 fittings, try Ultima Models

http://www.ultima-models.co.uk/

or B&H Enterprises

My previous enquiry to B&H Enterprises was returned as not available
Checked again and nothing similar listed

I had previously looked at Ultima Models, but due to the range being mostly pre-1980s I deleted the link
Hidden in Coach Fittings is UM255 BR scalloped dome vent (pack of 25)
Typical though, out of stock

I have to say, I like the Strawberry Hill Beast... Seems odd to use something so... large as a shunter, but... :)
I just keep trying to get a little better
Said a little better than before

I've been bitten by the Departmental EMU bug and got another two real oddities to add:

931002 - 2-car NSE route learning unit - former EPB with extra front-end windscreens.

931062 - "The Sprinkler" NSE 2-car Liquid Delivery Unit - again, an ex-EPB conversion with roller-shutter doors.

All going well, the Class 310 and 312 units should be ready for the NGS AGM next weekend.

Not got around to the departmental EMUs yet but decided to give the 158 artwork a bit of a makeover - here's 158840 in the new ATW livery. Looks quite nice, IMHO.

In response to a few requests at the NGS AGM yesterday, I've put the Electra pricelist on-line. It's still a work in progress, so there'll be things on there that aren't on the website and vice versa  :)

It's quite scary that the range now takes up 10 sides of A4, and growing!

A weighty 885k of compressed and PDF'd text can be found here:
