Yeah. Split some enamel on it though, while I was apinting the grey, and had to scrub it off with thinners. It all looks a bit wahsed out now, but the butress things at each end are done the same way without incident.

This week, I've been building the cambrian kit I told you about. It's pretty much finished, just needs painting, and more importantly, weathering!

The screw link coupling is salvaged from the detail pack f the Hornby Class 56. It didn't work, is getting sent back, and it's not as if they're going to use the detail parts, is it :wink:

Wagons looking well pt, A bit of white spirit and cloth around the glazing on the cabin, I'd also invest in a cheap airbrush

Nice wagon! Was it hard to do? I always shy away from doing bogies as they always seem to come out slightly wonky!

Cheers Dave et al.

Dave, the wagon itself was quite easy, but the bogie has caused to end of troubles. It currently needs a trip to my workbenck, one of the bogie sideframes has come off.
I built the bogie in negligence of the instructions, and it hasn't worked. I don't know if it was my way which doesn't work or the kit, and as such I'm in two minds as too whether or not to build five more for a rake.

nice layout....does your cat lucy frighten the living daylights out of the little OO people like my cat Poppy does? And before each time I operate I have to clean the track of cat fur..... I like the night time pics with the loco that I think is a class 37....am I right?
