About this blog

 

Thanks to a little company called Isinglass Models, I have been able to pick up a 3D Printed set for the LNER GE Quint Articulated set, the aim is to present

the coaching stock, as it would have looked in the '30s so basically in LNER Teak condition, with a small amount of weathering, so it can match the LNER

Oxford Rail N7 which was recently produced. Furthermore, it's so my future layout can have more variety in it's coaching stock as I don't want to be relying upon

the RTR Rage for the rest of my modeling career. So having a variety of stock means at future exhibition & home built layouts can stand out with what

is put on the layout, and to add a bit of modeling interest.

It's been a busy weekend,  but sadly it's all over but thanks to a day off today, various parts of the project have been able to be completed. Bringing myself one step closer to finishing this project to enable me to crack on with the Layout.    To make this a simple piece, this weekend, I was able to pick up my roofs for the Quints from Isinglass Models at the Peterborough Model Railway Show on top of that I was able to get my hands on some 3/32" Nickle Rod. This rod is only just too

Since the last update, it's been mainly lots of little jobs. Nothing too major in terms of project advancement but it's all in aid to finish the project off.      To start off, with coach No.1 being the 1/3rd Composite (Originally built 1st/2nd Comp) I spent two days painting figures, there are fairly basic figures which you can buy off eBay for £1.50 getting 25 figures in each bag. I bought enough so I have 94 figures in total and to date I have finished 28 figures, fitting 20 in

Since ordering the set from Isinglass Models and having been informed of how long it can take for the set to be produced I spent a bit of time collecting resources, so I thought I should briefly talk through what I found and what you'll need if your to build a similar set whether it be a; Quint, Quad or Twin. So recently these items arrived:    Transfers - X2 LNER Coach Numbers - X2 LNER Class door numbers - 1 Pack of LNER Corporate lettering & Guard lettering - 1 Pack of White

So the next project...   With the King Tiger project out of the way and the W1 project awaiting for airbrushing it was about time I moved forward to the next project, so since the Oxford Rail LNER N7 has fallen into my possession and the locomotive has returned from weathering, I thought the locomotive needed a set of coaches which accompanied the gracefulness of the N7, and well there is only one set of coaches which suits the N7 more, so I have managed to find a company which special
