I have to say, the North West Frontier Jube (which I happen to know is about the same half century vintage as me) runs like new...

Andy, Zulu and the Royal 47 will be with you very shortly, along with the EM2 and the green Ivatt that I couldn’t post a photo of tonight! More maroon Warships are in production...

Now - I have another Class 27 in the stripper bath, I have purple paint and some spare Porterbrook decals. How blasphemous would it be...?

You're all a bit odd.

I can explain it to you...

That very kind Mr Tank has let me add more pics - thanks @Tank! :)

Some more completed ones for you:


A GP tank gets the full LBSC dark umber treatment:





Finally completed the Porterbrook Deltic - quite proud of this one (especially the home-made Wipac light cluster!):








A re-numbered and re-crested Minitrix Ivatt tender loco:





Britannia "Mercury", now running sweetly and ready for sale:





An LMS tank that I've had for a while and finally managed to get the pony trucks installed to fit the body shape:





Merchant Navy class, just awaiting its boiler-side crests:





Another re-lined and renumbered Minitrix Ivatt:






The LSWR 700, complete and running and now happily re-united wither her owner!:




Jubilee "Leander", just awaiting nameplates:






And now a bit of silliness... I said I'd create a little corner of East Grinstead on my layout for my boys, so here is a bit of the famous High Street, complete with my boys' burgeoning retail empires...:








Finally, I've been working on some OO Gauge locos and have painted up some Langley crews figures. I just love the luxuriant 'tache on the driver and the weary expression of the fireman!:






As ever, there is much, much, more on the go on the workbench, which will make it in front of the camera soon...

Best wishes to all - more soon!

Lovely work as usual Gideon, I have the Farish version of the Porterbrook Deltic & I think yours edges it for quality!

Love the Retail empire  :thumbsup: 

The loco driver looks like he has stepped right out of Village People   :beers:
Thanks for looking - Andrew

Many thanks! :)

You're right about the driver - maybe I should have made the Fireman a Policeman or a Native American Indian...? ;)

Another one finished (save a lamp to go on the buffer beam!) - City of Truro in lined GWR livery (yes, I know the coupling rods are the wrong way up - I'll fix this later!!). I cannot even begin to describe how fiddly doing the three-part lining on the splashers is!!  ;)






The start of another "interesting" livery - to all you Class 27 purists out there, I'm really, really sorry...  :-[



 :sorrysign:

More soon...
