J27 #3

Posted by Sylvian Tennant , 28 November 2017 - - - - - - · 252 views
J27, Scratchbuild, Modified, NER and 2 more...
So far so good, i've managed to pretty much overhaul the locomotive and tender to give a decent representation of a J27. 
Unfortunately when I was looking over some images of the engine i was going to represent it turns out the dome was the wrong type. Being that anal I hunted around for another J27 with NER Pattern buffers an...


J27 #2

Posted by Sylvian Tennant , 19 November 2017 - - - - - - · 304 views

I'm back on the modelling horse again - ironically, I've moved to Tyneside and this has spurned me to to think about some of the projects I have in mind around this neck of the wood. Where I've moved to is not too far from Tyne Dock which has bumped me 9F project further up the list to convert it to 92064. Also going to ram through with the J27 to get som...


Project J27 #1

Posted by Sylvian Tennant , 18 July 2016 - - - - - - · 347 views

For some reason I started on this last night ... 
I think it was a Scratchbuilt J27 which another dickie X04 motor and dated chassis. Like the G5 it may have seen many owners and i think compared to any later offers may be slightly out of scale but overall it looks like a J27 and that's all that really matters to me as I think I can finish up with so...


Project Tank #1

Posted by Sylvian Tennant , 16 July 2016 - - - - - - · 292 views

Just a quickie to say I've started cracking on with a couple of new projects. This year will mainly be tank engines as I have none updated so far and since finished the Gresley coaches I may need venture into other projects for the variety. Currently in the works are a G5, which I think is Nucast originally. Built by a member of my old club and handed to...


Silk Purse?

Posted by Sylvian Tennant , 21 June 2016 - * * * * * · 432 views

Finally they're here! Based on an image I've found of a D49 on a local train. Save this time - I have Saltburn's Ivatt 4MT to hand.   The weathering was basically rail match roof dirt and frame dirt - with a ratio on favour of the roof dirt. I wanted to try something different from my umbral and I think it's paid off.     Apa...


A lovely day to show off some teakage

Hornby Railroad, Greeley, Teak and 5 more...
I've been away for a while, mainly due to personal tribulations, moving house, finishing uni for the year and trying to find a job to maintain our overheads. However this has not entirely stopped me from modelling when we finally managed to settle down. I now have a room all to myself to model and a garden (of which you may soon see some railway related a...


Teak update

Hornby Railrod, Teak, Gresley and 2 more...
Just a quick update on my Hornby Teak conversion project. 
The bodies are now complete. I've drilled the holes to accept MJT handrails and grab handles, added roof vents from Lanarkshire models, and roof handrails. Toilet pipes and emergency brake pipes. I've also removed the gangways to later be replaced by some scratch built and MJT concertinas an...


Gresley Teaks

Posted by Sylvian Tennant , 05 March 2016 - - - - - - · 306 views

So after ramming some engines through the updateometer I realised that I haven't done any rolling stock for at least a year! Which is terrible of me. Worse still, apart from the support coaches for my breakdown crane, I have no passenger stock at all. 
Well that must change so first things first, I have set about doing a local passenger set to go wit...


Developing a smoking addiction

Posted by Sylvian Tennant , 12 February 2016 - - - - - - · 273 views

Hello again

I'm doing on a bus, which is a first. Just another completed Mucky Duck. Complete a with a clean (ish) smoke box and another fireman having a sneaky tab.

I might have to introduce a workplace ban on this from now on as I run the risk of it becoming Samey, the same with the clean smoke boxes

Anyway here's 43054 (a Saltburn engine)...


Slightly better pictures

The previous ones didn't do much justice to the finished engines so I quickly took some thing morning whilst having the morning fag.


Partner's in crime

Dave Alexander, Q6, WD, WEATHERED
Hello hello hello

I'm sort of back, kind of. I've been quite busy of late with a study that is going mental with stuff, a uni course who over aches my head and a girlfriend who is now a fiancée. Mental.

But I still have time to model which is good.

So here they are, first up is my beloved Q6 which I finished on Friday. Unfortunately the light in t...


Four Coupled Hang Over

Posted by Sylvian Tennant , 09 August 2015 - - - - - - · 541 views

Hello, hi, good evening, who are you!

Ah well never mind, you're here now and I suppose I should talk to you.

Well, enough of these commissions and imaginative what if's, something relatively real now, for me.

remember that Dave Alexander Q6 that I was relegating to the side due to my overly pessimistic opinion of doing something completely heinous to...
