Readers of EIM will know that we are serialising construction techniques of the Automatons built by veteran modellers Dave row, and the links on this page will take you to video of the creations in action.

 

So to kick off - the 'Mad Marvin' rhino tamer from February 2018 is at 

 

Guinea Pigs, from April 2018, is at https://www.youtube....eature=youtu.be

 

More to follow in due course

Certainly is... Those layouts have recently featured in our sister magazine British Railway Modelling. Three of them, including Under Milk Wood, are now cared for by John Forman of the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway. They were donated to I think the Welsh Development agency as a promotional tool and some years later the Agency decided they were no longer of use. The bloke disposing of them had an idea of dropping in to Llanfair to ask if the railway might have any use for these old layouts before he took them to a skip (!), and very luckily John just happened to be on duty that day!
