By 'eck, he's achieved something!

Posted by Pugsley , in RTR Bashing, Weathering 21 March 2012 - * * * * * · 837 views

I've not really acheived much of late, I haven't really felt like doing much and the large scale 37 has stalled as there's a few expensive bits I need to buy for it before I can continue. Over the last week or two I've slowly started to feel like doing something, so thought I'd turn my attention to some of the unfinshed projects kicking...

Tanks a bunch

EM, tank, 102T, grimy, 45T and 3 more...
The first of the 45 tonners is now almost complete, with just tidying up and painting left to do. i also need to fit the catwalk that fits above the buffer beam, on the solebar, but will fit that once the barrel has been painted.



The kit instructions are quite straightforward, but I did struggle with one bit, folding...

Spot the difference

TTA, tanks, mods, spot, the and 1 more...
I've made a start on the chassis of the first TTA, replacing the springs and making it look a little more like the prototype it's based on.

Whilst looking mostly similar, 45t Monobloc oil tanks are a minefield once you get into the details. Suspension brackets are different shapes, there are different rib quantities and spacings, different...

Low fidelity?

TTA, tanks, mods, paper blu-tack
Who needs expensive decals when you've got paper and blu-tack? :lol:



I've started another project to give me a break from the 37, I thought it was about time I indulged in a spot of wagonry. Besides, now slow progress is being made on Bisley Jct, I really could do with some stock for the oil terminal!

37/7 Progress

An even greater lack of imagination with the title for tonights update, on the plus side it is a little more descriptive of what's actually occuring! :D

Since last time Hornby class 50 buffers have been substituted for the Bachmann ones, which are too spindly IMO. To do this, twist the heads slightly to the right and pull, the head should come...

He ain't heavy....

Bachmann, 37, 37/7, conversion and 2 more...
A somewhat obtuse title, I suppose, but what the heck, I'm suffering from lack of imagination due to the heat :D

Work continues on the heavyweight conversion, with the bogie mods done and the headlights replaced. These are Replica items, drilled through with a 2mm drill and stuck to the shell with Plastic Weld once the original moulded lights were...

Heavyweight Champion

With the oil terminal on the forthcoming layout, I decided it would be a good idea to have a Railfreight Petroleum 37 or two on the roster for bringing the oil trains in. A search of fotopic found this photo of 37890 at Guildford in 1991:

Given that it's not a million miles from where the layout is set and the...
