Model of the Month Bachmann Ivatt 2-6-2T

This months model takes us back to steam traction and another one of my favourite locos The Ivatt 2-6-2T By Bachmann.     I originally bought this model with the intention of converting it to a BR Standard class 2 2-6-2Tank, However I chickened out once Bachmann announced their intention of doing the same thing! I did however fit the motion support brackets that Bachmann in their wisdom omitted from the model.     The loco has been Heavily weathered as they were in real Lif

Model of the Month (April 2012) Dapol / Airfix VENTILATED MEAT VAN

Dapol / Airfix VENTILATED MEAT VAN     This months model is a recently constructed Dapol kit of a BR ventilated meat van in use from the 1950's up to the 1970's although not used for its intended purpose towards the end of their careers on BR.   My model shows a meat van in early 1960's condition having been repainted from coaching stock maroon it to BR Bauxite and now in use for general merchandise.   Apart from the basic kit I have used some very nice buffers from Nairnshire modelling
