It's been quite from me the last couple of days. Following the stay at home order, I've relocated to my girlfriends so that she won't be on her own for the next three weeks. Naturally, some modelling bits and pieces came with me and progress on the teak rake is continuing.



Decals applied to the first side of the Buffet.



Both BTKs exist - the back one had just been rinsed following some minor remedial work.

As always Steve, lovely models but... this has to be one of the best quotes so far during all this CV19 stuff:

“Following the stay at home order, I've relocated to my girlfriends so that she won't be on her own for the next three weeks.”

This certainly made me chuckle.  Men - you got to love us!  :D

Kind regards

Well a few days of settling in and adjusting to this new lifestyle saw little modelling done. However, I have now started the push towards finishing the two Brake Thirds for the Cambridge set. The teaking has been completed and, weather permitting, I'll be able to seal the oil paints tomorrow. Sorry no photos of the coach bodies as the light isn't good enough to show the teak effect.

I've also made a start on the bogies and assembled all the batter boxes and brake gear.



You may have noticed that one bogie has also been assembled. I've got another three to make - here is the flat etch.



Despite appearances, they're not too difficult to assemble (but are time consuming). With luck, tomorrow will see the other three assembled. Then I just need to order some more wheelsets as I've run out!
