It's not LMS and it's not a steamie... but it is crimson!

Warship D806 "Cambrian" now finished...:

Those two green/gold German locos look a bit better after their brake fluid bath...

The Royal Scot gets a (home-made!) nameplate:

The green Peco Jube is coming along - although one of those  :censored: boiler bands seems to have shifted, will have to attend to that...:

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)



The Scot's tender. I'm doing the lining with strips of Fox's .35 lining. I can't do more than 15 minutes of this at a time - getting those curves right is enough to send sane men scampering into the trees...  :confused1:

In my defence, there's green and there was "that" green...! ;)

You wait 'til I've finished the crimson Jube I'm working on - I've really gone to town on the lining, you'll love it Paul!

You can never have too many locos, t-shirts, power tools, guitars... ;)

A new purchase from a fellow NGF member (you know who you are, and thanks - it runs nicely!) :)

In desperate need of some re-spray love, though - I'm thinking crimson with yellow ends for this one!

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)


A black Prairie with new BR logos. Not done much cosmetically to this aside from the new decals, but the motor and valve gear have been cleaned and de-fluffed!

Here's that Warship, all stripped down - I thought I might take a pic of every stage of its transformation so you can see how it progresses:

And here's a newly-completed Lima 2-6-4 - quite pleased with this one as the paintwork is nice and crisp and it runs really well!

 :greatpicturessign: WOW!

Great livery choice on the 4mt mate, looks a bit better than the rail blue with yellow ends on mine

Keep up the good work!

I knew I shouldn't have looked through this post. Some lovely work done, especially when you see the before and after pictures, however I do now have an urge to eBay a loco :P

Because I was given that rather lovely (but very heavy!) door layout by SWMBO's uncle, herself has decided that my lovingly-crafted test track has to find a new home. Humph.  :(

It's going to a good home, though - my youngest's best friend is crazy about locos, so I'm making it into a "proper" layout for his birthday present (he'll get that Czech loco I restored and some trucks as well!)

Here's the test track, with added hill, tunnel and engine shed (it will have a station, industrial buildings and a village too):

More progress on some of my projects...

The formerly gloopy green and gold German tank loco gets a new "fresh out of the workshop" grey livery:

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)


So do its wheels (why did I decide to paint the spokes separately...?! "Stupid boy, Pike!" Ho hum, it'll look good.)

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)



The Warship that I stripped has been primered and painted - just needs a couple of yellow ends and some decals!

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)



Another Warship, on her way to being "Greyhound" in an all-green livery:

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)



Yet another Warship - this one is going to be "Onslaught" in her battleship grey preservation livery (just to be a bit different!)

This is far and away the best thread on the forum!

I'm absolutely gob-smacked by the quality of your work and the speed you do it at. It would take me months to do anything as good as that and I would probably give up in despair long before that...

Fair play to you. Keep 'em coming!
