Setting the scene

Setting the scene Hello and welcome to you to all

Well, as you can see from the photo, there is no workshop. Since moving to Belem in north Brazil I have yet to get a proper modelling space. So for now it is the corner of our bedroom balcony. All is not lost though in the photo you will see an O gauge pannier tank. I will show more of this later. This was constructed in this corner.
Being so near the Equator and the Amazon forest my work day is quite limited. I general do not work here much after 12 noon. As the temperature gets to high and quite often rains about 3PM. But yesterday it rained all day and was a positively cool 24C.
As you will see from the photo's the balcony is not a bad space to work in. the second shot shows the view, apartment blocks and Mango trees.
Since spending Christmas in the UK I have managed to get a few more of my tools here so life making models should be a little easier.
I intend to post about my successes and failures in my workshop (balcony), and about things that interest me here, also to publish some pictures from the area, which hopefully you may enjoy.

That's an unusual workshop, and probably a slightly unusual place to be modelling UK steam :-) Look forward to seeing some of your modelling progress.

I will be posting a picture of the new works when I have the latest photos. I had been modelling british outline since I was about 15. Only been here in Brazil 8 months now
An odd workshop space perhaps and an interesting view! It must be quite nice working there, and watching the world go by.

It is an odd place I will be happier when the workshop is finished. It is just about posible to make kits here.

N15's trials and tribulations

Welcome to my blog. I hope to keep you up to date with what is going on on my bench, with my models and thing that interest me and hopefully about the area I live within north Brazil. Models as completed will be in the files rather than listed here. Otherwise this list will become far to long.
