Thanks! :) I get the nameplates from Fox Transfers - they do some great etched products in addition to their decals.

Thanks - also the works plates on the loco solebars? Never seen those before - are the a Fox product too?

Cheers,
Alan

Yes, they come as part of the set - you have to have some very fine sprue cutters to get the little rascals off though! ;)

That's a lovely little layout - the seven-year-old is one lucky lad!

I still want to know where you find the time for all your modelling. Do you work 48-hour days, double-time at weekends??

In the evenings when the kids and Mrs have gone to bed - and normally far too late into the night! ;)

More from the Despair Depot...

The Warship I've been working on was so nearly finished... I experimented with a very fine silver permanent marker to do the handrails and the ink has leached a bit - I'll touch up with a fine brush and re-do the satin varnish and it'll be fine. It runs like a new loco - other than the handrail glitch I'm very pleased:

Finally finished the blue Windsor Castle:

Very pleased with the nameplate lettering (if a little cross-eyed now!)

A little Arnold 0-6-0 that I've fixed up - nothing cosmetic done here, but very satisfying to clean it all up inside and get it running sweetly again!

So many locos, so little time... ;)

Great jobs all round.

The Castle in particular looks very striking in blue....Farish should have done one!

Cheers,
Alan

I've got COUGHsevenCOUGH in varying states of disrepair - mainly broken tender trays. But I am determined to bring them all back to rude and chuffing health! :)

Before the Farish Jubilee came out I was very critical of those who had stashes of Peco Jubilees.

I imagine that the second hand price of the Peco Jubilee has come down since the Farish one became availabe and that some "stashers" have lost money on their "investment" ?

Best regards,


Joe
