Had an email back to say missing parts will be replaced. Accidentally ordered an Oxford Dean Goods... Will be bashing this to add panniers etc, painting in WD black and building the rail gun it hauled. Really quite excited about this project. Been in touch with my friend's dad who has an interest in such things from his military modelling so will hopefully be able to draw on his knowledge and skills. He makes small runs of kits and when I last saw him said he has produced one of the longest kits of a model rail item. A German rail gun of multiple wagons and the gun itself. Watch this space!! 8)

Wow!!! Price!!!

Might have to speak to him about making it and then making a kit of it! That's what he does. Wouldn't surprise me if he had something to do with those ones on Rails

Had a little time today after the house cleaning was done so primed most of the wagons I've built. I haven't done the brake van as didn't feel like trying to mask it today!

Merry Christmas everyone, I hope you all have a fab day tomorrow!

[Mod Edit]


This is the URL for the unboxing video. https://youtu.be/.........QSEIDtTBMts some members think it unsuitable for youngsters. If they know how to copy and paste it to get into YouTube witholding a link isn't going to make much difference.

Sorry, just to say for younger members there are a couple of adult words in the video

Yes, but thought it polite to mention in case someone clicks play and gets in trouble with the 'rents!!!
