Leading up to and following my wife's operation of last week
I've had little 'spare time' and hardly been on-line. What I did
do was start a Parkside PC84 10ton GWR Mink 'A' goods van kit.
Here are the results so far :-
A lovely kit that although confusing because of the variants and
subsequent modifications in service becomes a must for any
GWR freight modeller.
The kit covers V12, V14, V16, but also not mentioned, the V13
Fish wagons. I've more or less decided to order another 3 kits
for my own use. This particular one is for the clubs West Bay
Now as I'll be nursemaid, cook, bottle-washer, cleaner, Laundry
and a few other jobs for the next month I think I'll dig out the
Ratio 'Iron Mink' kit to go alongside this. That is pending obtaining
those extra PC84's
Not many glitches, BUT remove the moulding pips off the insides
of the solebars and end panels.
