Pete,

You can't use the 'View Current' for embedding images, it needs to be this kinda URL:

Look under the picture on Photobucket when they're all thumbnails, then select the one that starts with [IMG] :)

Fantastic work, I think a bit of weathering would be like the icing on the cake for me!

Very nice Pete, and such nice closeup photography too. 80072 is looking fantastic, such a handsome prototype. Keep us posted on your work.

Nice work there!

Always admired the class 13 - shame I model the wrong region and area!

I'm a design engineer by trade and a very nice chap in our prototype shop very kindly made me a hexagon punch and die set write down to .25 of a mm in size and this was used to produce the bolt heads.
