2018 - Deja Vu ?

Posted by Ravenser , in Constructional, Reflections 07 January 2018 - - - - - - · 348 views

It's that time of the year when I survey the state of the bookcase and the cupboard and post over-optimistic ambitions for the year's modelling.... At least this year I'm sitting down to contemplate at the start of January, rather than the middle of February, which I suppose is progress.

LMS coaches, Steam era coaches
After a long while contemplating the idea, I finally bought one of the Dapol LMS coaches in CKD form .

LMS Coaches, DMUs
I didn't get round to my annual New Year's Resolutions posting this year - a bad sign. Thanks to a new job and various domestic renewals not a lot of modelling was done in the couple of months before New Year, and even less posting on here took place. 
Nevertheless rather more modelling took place in 2016 than was written up in this blog. The trouble...
