Here a turn up for the books. I have had a chance to get the Buffalo out and give it a coat of satin varnish mixed with a dash of black.

It is now been reassembled and is ready for posting.

I am very pleased with the way this has turned out. I would have one of these lovely tanks if I modelled the GWR. I was a little concerned when I got the set of parts...

I made the number plates and applied the transfers as number 1282. The number plates are kits that I get from Martin Finney. I like these as you are not limited to certain numbers, and there seems to be little waste in the way of numbers as to you can get extra plates.

Just a very quick update as no modelling was done today, I thought I would post a picture or two.

They all show progress on the painting of the tank body section.

I am not totally happy with the colour, but I know the green before 1928 was different. The loco is based on a...

1076 class (3) I had a successful day I wired up and put the pickups onto the chassis. It then spent about two hours or so running in each direction on the rolling road, seems to be sweet as a nut. Will know for sure when the body is reattached. Fingers crossed.

It was lucky I had this to do because the balcony was out off bounds today.

Here are a few photos of my 7mm Buffalo under construction. I think you will see it is a very straight forward build nothing to fancy. I am looking forward to the day it is finished I get board with some builds this was one unfortunatly.

Above is the footplate section, this just requires the buffers soldering on and...

1076 class (1) Hi.

I am in the process of finishing off a GWR pannier tank. It is from a set of etches I got from Dave Berry shortly before he pass away. It seems that the etches were for a multitude of pannier tanks, so it was a case of making sure I only used the ones I needed.
I do not know when it was drawn but it was very old style, needing a lot of fitting and...





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.
