I'm going to have a wild guess and say, Wellington Bomber?

I see where you're coming from, but nope. It's a little bit younger and has more engines...

Well it's not a Lancaster, as it's the wrong colour.

Unless it's the passenger variant, which was operated by BOAC and called the Lancastrian?

it is, well was, indeed a Shackleton. Maritime patrol aircraft, with a bit of bombing of uppity tribesmen and troop transporting to boot. Anyone taking a punt on the smaller cockpit section?

older than a Hunter E2V...

In other news, I'm looking forward to welcoming a couple of new locomotives to the fleet in the next couple of weeks. So I'd best get some more track for them to run on this weekend!

Meatbox it is!
If anyone else wants something similar knocking up for their layout, let me know. I've a draw full of scrap aircraft bits...

Looking good so far, Blue_2! You have some classic rolling-stock there!

I like the idea of a scrapyard; that'll generate some traffic.

...I've prepared some aircraft 'remains' for the yard. Bonus points to anyone (apart from DonB!) who can work out what aircraft they are/were!


Awwwww... :( :wink: :lol: (Although I have been beaten in ID-ing them!)

Cheers,

I have to admit I do feel a bit sorry for the 9F Oliver, specially when I see it's shiny sister next to it! :)

Yesterday was a cracking day of building. After resupplying with flexitrack and other goodies at Monk Bar Models in York, it was time to get some track down. Firstly though I'd had a box of goodies delivered courtesy of Mpetch of this parish (cheers!), amongst it was a old, sorry looking Tri-ang signal box. I decided it needed innards, a chimney and glass-

It's now waiting for my better half to get busy with the brick paper, she's better at that than I!
I was a bit busy sussing out curves to take many in progress shots, but here's an overview of stage 1

92231 had the honour of completing the first circuit with a load...

Station and steam shed

Taking this new arrival, kit built Dapol, for it's first trip round the line.

This time yesterday, it was in a poly bag, in kit form, in the shop!
At the front of the layout is the coal drop. This was part of the layout my Dad build for me several millenia ago, and it had to come back. Behind it is a goods shed and a livestock loading ramp. This ramp was also in the mixed box of things from Mpetch, as was the dummy Tri-ang loco being used for ballast while the glue holding the cut down sleepers dries.

I suspect the cow was hoping for a somewhat better mode of conveyance!

I'm now short of track and points for the crossover, sidings and inner loop. Let's see what this week, and Lincoln next Sunday, brings...
Ps. Remember, Bert was keeping an eye on proceedings... :wink:
