Work has gotten in the way of hobbies of late - it being the time of the year that my Yr 12 stuff has to be sorted out and sent away for verification. Coupled with kids who aren't sleeping well, there isn't a lot of modelling mojo going around.
In an effort to try and do something, I tidied my work bench (Amity suggested I should take a before and after picture and blog that but I don't think there is much difference between the two - it is more organised chaos rather than merely chaos when it is tidy!) and did some pottering. Nothing worth photographing but this is what has happened:
DGs have started to be fitted to the Fruit Van train which is destined to be hauled by either a BR J70 or a Cl 04 when Elm Road is finally built, early next year.
The treads on the Cartic 4 are half done. Not a fan of stainless steel, no matter how much nicer it might look compared with n/s. I think the n/s would have been better as it would have been soldered into place rather than glued - and with less bubbles. Definately need cars for this first one!
A perliminary coat of paint has been applied to the LNWR Horsebox.
So not much for the best part of a week. I must really get stuck in and get a couple of things finished prior to next week - we are going to Brisbane for the BRMA(Q) AMMC. Hopefully I can manage to snare a couple of prizes - Scratch built lineside structure (the Cattle Dock) and Diorama (the Cattle Dock again - but this time with art around it as previously shown!).
