About this blog

 

So what this blog was going to be has been changing quite a bit in the past, from oo Tramway to O Gauge A1...I thought it be about time I plonked this in one place and moved on with something perhaps to become the future of my railway modeling. 

 

So, this is not a project as such more of a series of mini-blogs which center around O Gauge, this will be looking at modifying engines, building coaches & wagons and perhaps some diorama's for these items.

Connoisseur Kit's LNER J68 Part 4

Hello again,   So a lot has happened since the last blog so I'll bring you up to speed.    In the last blog, I asked for some help regarding the ARC-ing, sadly no-one came forward to give me any hints or tips. So I took the logical step to go back and re-do what I had done, this was a whole afternoon spent trying to get the model to operate, firstly all the brake rigging came off and the engine ran fine. So what became a three hour process of elimination of what was wrong wit

Hello again,    After a bit of work I have finished the building work on the J68, so it'll be a bit brief, but I would like a bit of help from the vast group of experienced modelers out there...       Anyway, the kit has reached a stage where the fittings have been going on. So since the last update, I've fitted all the cab and boiler fittings, for this I have used Araldite to hold these parts together, apart from the lifting lugs which I have been white metal solde

I'm back once again,    This update is mainly to bring you to speed with the build...     With the cab, tool boxes, backhead (removable) and other controls fitted, the loco is starting to come alive!!   Sadly I have reached the stage where I have in fact made a mistake with the back of the cab(which you cannot see). However, Nothing is ever permanent and brass is so forgiving as I have found out, that I will correct the back of the cab to get the back int

So with the last parts of my degree finished, I can give myself a few weeks before I move to pastures new...   So it's worth mentioning what has happened too me since writing and planning for the Hattons A3, I had a sudden realization that getting something such as a RTR A3 would actually cause more hassle than it would be practical. Of course the original intention for the A3 would be to operate at a friends garden railway.  Which is still very much the case, however, in the

POW Sides GER Private Owner Wagon 7mm

Thanks to current events,my final year at University has gone mad so work on all modelling project's has had to stop. But fortunately I can see light as I've finished my degree...Phew!!    Just for a change of pace, and knowing my skill set I felt I could build and paint this all in a day, this wagon holds memories to me as it's my home town of Attleborough in Norfolk. This wagon was owned by John Park-Wick's, I managed to find a photo of him in front of his Ford Model T Pickup to take
