It's well worth removing the internal side supports for plastic loads from the Peco wagons. I used a sharp craft knife, then a metal file. After cleaning out the interior I then repainted the interior.

Maybe one day. I'm more into buildings mode at present!

thats it i quit lol!

Please don't do that!

When I saw my pics in RM recently it made me want some photos printed. So I had a play with designing a photo book but in the end I decided to have 8"x12" prints made and I've put them into a display book. That way I can add future pictures and move around the existing ones. I might have another look at doing a photo book some time, though.

Has anyone spotted what's different in yesterday's photo?

The crew attracted my attention, also, but I didn't stop to think about them being a new addition until your question. With my layout set just before the WWII I've not yet found figures that will work, so I'm always looking for pictures that include driver and/or fireman (got half that right, I think - driver for the UK and fireman for the US).

Very nice figures indeed, Roger.  The fireman appears to be fiddling with the injector and the driver is looking down at something.  The people certainly complete the scene.

Best wishes.

Bit worrying the pic was taken by a drone, though....

Hang on, they didn't exist back then.

Worse! Doctor Who's drone!  ;D

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I like to think that Kevin Phare's mate, the Squadron Leader, was still flying in the early 1960s and had moved from the Little Muddle area (https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/120848-little-muddle/) to East Anglia! He does seem to be flying very low, though.

Those figures look really, really good Roger..

They are from the GF set 379-307. I gave them a couple of washes of Lifecolor Weathered Black before fixing them in place. There wasn't much room to get them both in. I guess I've now got to fit figures in the other locos one day...

Here's a closer view of the loco. Hope the Squadron Leader gained some height immediately after taking this one.

While I was fiddling the crew into the 4F I also tried adding some lamps. They're the Springside ones and look a tad over scale size to me...



I didn't glue them on, they're just held by a tiny bit of Tacky Wax. I found it very fiddly getting them to stay in place so I don't think lamps will be a regular feature in Wrenton photos.

As it was midsummer day today I decided to resume my sunset watch.

Fitting lamps required patience. I used tweezers on my first attempt. Thanks for the sunset photos

Another case for the magic grey wash, which shrinks as it washes as it dirties!

Yes, I've been looking at Modelu, for more crew figures too. Not much time for models at the moment as I'm busy doing some 12"/ft terraforming. Much harder work than the 2mm/ft equivalent!

Amazing how well that trick works!
