Steve,

That lovely locomotive deserves a crew from Modelu.

Regards,

Roy

Good idea Roy.

Steve, you could do that by inviting us on this forum to volunteer as candidates to be scanned.

This could be in the form of an auction.

The highest bidders would be scanned.

The proceeds would be donated to a charity of your choice.

The images of the volunteers would of course be published here so we can all have a laugh at their expense.

Best regards,


Joe

Joe,

Great idea.

If you look at my profile picture, you'd maybe think I have a claim on the scan, but I'm not really footplate crew!

Regards,

Roy

Thanks guys but I think I'll leave the Modelu figures for something with a nice open cab, where they can be seen!  :D

2911 has moved on a bit where it can be used as a photo of a built model for the Shapeways shop.



There is a crew in there. Really!

Next week is finishing altering the CAD to take into account the issues found during the build...

Seconded!  Very nice; very nice indeed.

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1930s to the 1950s.

Seen this loco in the flesh today, excellent though it looks in the photos, they really don't do it justice!

Thank you for your kind comments guys.

Paul, you know I've got an LMS loco in development. It'll get there!  ;)

Roy, thanks so much for your praise of this loco both in person and on here. Your comments about my 'erroneous' choice of livery has been noted and I hope that my choice of livery for the V3 build will be more to your liking!  :smiley-laughing:

Thank you so much for all your kind comments. Some more cruel close ups of the loco.











...and finally with the flash on to prove that there is a crew in there!

I know I have shaky hands but, that apart, I am still gobsmacked by the skill of you and several other forum members who have the ability to produce work to such a high standard.
I salute you all. :admiration:

I sympathise.  I first showed symptoms of what is now known as Essential Tremor when I was 10.  55 years on it gets progressively worse and hefty medication is not really reducing it to any useful extent, and I get ever more limited in what I can tackle.  DBS is currently the only real surgical option on the NHS but that carries some risks and costs c 90k.  Focused Ultrasound treatment has not yet been passed for general use.  So I am not optimistic that I can persuade my neurologist to put me forward for it

Interestingly NICE has now approved Focused Ultrasound as a surgical treatment for Essential Tremor..   At present, according to a leading UK neurologist I was listening to last Saturday, they only do one side (for me that would be left side of brain to correct the right hand).   That might change but it is still a life changing start.  And the cost is only 10 to 12k with far less on costs for follow up and ongoing review and adjustment than DBS, and far less risk of associated damage to the brain.  Hopefully the vastly reduced cost will encourage those who agree funding to support treatment to more sufferers.  I must begin to nag my own neurologist in that direction.  Even gluing people on the platform has been getting difficult, except for the occaisional old fashioned ones with a large round baseplate!  The less said about soldering, painting etc the better
