Oz ... sorry, other things have been getting in the way trains lately, hence the absence.

They look stupendous to me Sir! With your good skills I shall not be making any last minute changes,

These two bodies shall be most treasured!

Best

Nothing to do with N Gauge, I know, but I mentioned earlier that I was saving the money I made from restored loco sales for a non-N Gauge toy.

If you are not a fan then this will seem like total gibberish to you sir, but I saw that photo and just had to say:

"Amazing, doesn't even need tuning"

Series 6, "Legion"

I've finally, finally finished the B12! This started black and featureless but now has a handrail and nice shiny valves courtesy of NBrass. Quite proud of the lining on this one:

Here's a little Minitrix 0-6-0 just out of the paint shop. It goes like a rocket!:

Both are for sale and will be on ebay shortly...

That Minitrix fits an ABS Beaver kit, GWR 1366 tank; under rule 1 I finished mine in SR Maunsell green

Could stand a repaint and a better lining job

Another very nice paint job, just wondering if there was a reason for leaving off the cab handrails?

Cheers,
Alan

Curses.

A lesson learned the hard way - if you leave a Minitirix A4 body in brake fluid too long (to strip the paint) it WILL soften the plastic body sufficiently that it will score easily when scraping the paint off... :doh:

A little filler should rescue this particular one, but you have been warned!  :veryangry:

Out of interest has it regained its stiffness after being removed from the brake fluid?

Yes, it has - I left it to soak in cold soapy water for a day, rinsed it off and it's just like it was before - just with scratches in it!
