Thank you! They are both still work in progress, the bucket loader was sprayed with yellow aerosol hence all one colour at the moment, still plenty of painting & detail wotk to do on them.

Cheers, Stu

They look damn good Stu!!!!!, nothing looks wrong with the Ruston  :claphappy:

Thank you! As long as it looks reasonably good I'll be happy with it. It's a fiddly build & been testing my patience quite a bit  ;D

Cheers, Stu

Time for another little update. The bucket loader kit now completed & heavily weathered







Another vehicle still work in progress, A Sherpa van




Finally for now the nightmare build Ruston crane finally painted, weathered & finished. I also had to scratchbuild the clam bucket for this one out of some plasticard sheet & thin card as there wasn't one included in the kit.
Far from perfect but it looks the part I think & I'm now happy how it's turned out despite it being a right pain to build at times.






Cheers, Stu

Love the Sherpa, I did quite a few miles in one back in the late 80s.  It was rubbish but I got quite fond of it.

This layout is just getting better the more bits you add to it.

Those vehicles are just great.
Really good modelling work.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.
