Very nice little scenes Bruce, and well captured. :thumbsup:

Looks like the hiker with his socks off has had his boots stolen! :o. - or maybe they just rolled down the hill. :D

Either that, or they were too darned fiddly to stick down. The carpet monster nearly bagged one of them as it was. But since the actual boots are indeed in the pack supplied by Preiser, I've extracted my tweezers...

Nicely done Bruce. :thumbsup:  I’ll have to get a set of those relaxed hikers to go with the climbers I have.

A class 86 has joined the roster for the local passenger service, which means the class 23 can be allocated to the Eilzug.

Dabbling with weathering continues. A further HEA (actually an HSA) has joined the short set that will one day make up the 10:20 Didcot - Chessington coal service arrived courtesy of Anoraks Anonymous at a recent show, and has now been weathered. Not too tar brush like, hopefully acceptable for a coal wagon...

Humbrol enamels, a paint brush and loads of white spirit. A dab of white on the brake lever first, then very dilute black on the body (everywhere) and dilute earth colour (would have used frame dirt but it had dried up) on the underframe. Looks better if you don't miss a bit... when dry (well, preferably wait until it's dry), a coat of matt acrylic varnish. Nothing fancy or clever, certainly not up to the standard required to do anything like a coach, basic and crude - but then again, the Farish HEA isn't exactly a cutting edge model.
