Thanks to my wonderfully understanding and tolerant girlfriend, I got these as my press's this morning!  :D



2mm scale etches for another Toad E, an LNER cattle van, GC and GE Macs, some coal wagons and various chassis etches and associated bits to finish off some other projects.

Now all I need is the time to build time (and finish off a load of other bits)!

I am very lucky!  :claphappy:

The chocolate orange is still intact (as I don't think I could eat anything else today!) but likewise, the kits aren't started...

Merry Christmas to you and your family as well.  :)

Ali's Chocolate Orange: 2 measures brandy, 1 measure chocolate liqueur (Thornton's or Bailey's), 1.5 measures Cointreau, 2 measures cream. Stir and serve over ice, preferably in a glass. Don't have too many.

And to you, Steve.

Thanks Roy.

Right the first kit building of 2019 have been done today with these.



The other wagon from the LMS van twin pack and a Parkside LNER coal wagon body. Both of these will end up with 2mm Association etched chassis as I'm not keen on the old Peco 10' wheelbase chassis (too clunky) and I've never managed to make a Parkside chassis run to my satisfaction.



Two NGS Midland vans (kit 3, I think). These are mounted temporarily on the Peco 10' chassis while I have a look through the 2mm catalog for something that might serve as a replacement. I've still got one more of these to build and, if I find a better etched chassis, three more to try and prise the Peco chassis off the bottom of.

All built with a basic toolkit as I'm over at my better half's at the moment. Soldering etches will have to wait at least a few more days...

Briefly continuing with wagon building today and I finally built one of the etched chassis kits I was given at Christmas.



This is an LNER 9' wheelbase fitted chassis from the 2mm Association paired with an LNER 'standard' six plank wagon body from the same source.
