Setting the scene
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.
