I am as jealous as anything Colin, they are so good looking  :thumbsup:

I posted a couple of videos showing off surviving rolling stock here, I am sure you will enjoy watching them:

Not actually N Gauge, but it's my latest purchase...

Everything except my new airbrush has arrived now.  I tried the new compressor with my old, knackered, airbrush, yesterday evening.  It's a big improvement.  It's much quieter, much more controllable and is quite a lot smaller, so it takes up less space under my workbench.  The only downside is that it takes a bit longer to get up to working pressure than the old one - but once it gets there it has an automatic shut off, and only starts up again once the pressure drops below a certain level.



Had an email late last night to sat that my new airibrush has now been dispatched, so hoping that'll arrive in time for me to play over the weekend.

And a mate wants my old compressor (which is in really good nick, and just needs a new home), so it's all good.

Later...

Look what the postie delivered, five minutes ago - YIPPEE!!!!

I use the same compressor it's working really well for me, continuous reliable air, very nice choice of airbrush, im using cheap ones at the moment but I've been having success in spraying so thinking of tooling up,,,,,, how much was the eclipse?

Cheers Fratton,

The Eclipse SBS was 119.70 (retail is 150), bought from GraphicAir Online, via Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Iwata-IW-ECL-CS-Eclipse-CS-Airbrush/dp/B001I17JV8/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1366374352&sr=8-1-fkmr0&keywords=iwata+eclipse+sbs.  That was the cheapest I could find from a genuine Iwata-approved retailer.

Came with the full 10-year UK Warranty paperwork and everything.  Going to set up and have a go with it very shortly - start out with ink on paper, as I usually do with a new a/b.

If that NSE 47 was an example of what you can achieve with a cheap air-brush, I can't wait to see what you'd do with a good one...

It has to be said that, after my Aztek A470, this seems in a different class altogether.  It's a beautiful piece of Japanese engineering, beautifully finished.  It inspires confidence, in a way a chunk of mass-produced plastic never could.  It's like 2010s Kato alongside 1980s Farish.  Now to try it out...

Quick pics just to show and tell, so low quality.
This arrived yesterday:



There's also another 3 coaches, but as they are the same as the 3 pictured, I didn't bother photographing them aswell.
It's the Dapol 'Hinderton Hall' and 6 Collett Coaches in GWR Shirtbutton livery from Osborn's Models.

Only given the loco a quick test run to check it works and it seems pretty good.

Also took a pic of it with my old Poole built Farish 'Raveningham Hall';

It does a bit. Can't wait to get my new railway sorted so I can see it running properly.

Some wagon kits this time that arrived today from County Rolling Stock;



Will start a thread for these when I start to put them together.

Apparently, the N7 Loco Coal wagons were put into general goods traffic when they were replaced by all steel wagons, so I was thinking of making one as the N7 and trying to add a sheet rail or coke rails to at least one of the others.
Don't know if they'd have kept their previous numbers or been given new numbers when they were converted though. Apparently there wasn't a new diagram issued for the converted wagons.
