  1. Just found this thread & am taking note! They all look brilliant. Anything happened with the previous posts?
  2. Hello All very interesting! I particularly like the way NCB has been mentioned (as a NCB modeler myself) and would certainly be fun to operate. I drew up plans for an NCB pier; a wooden structure being rail served by an NCB internal system and operating a dropper system into the boats below (like some North Eastern wagons I believe) and back to the colliery via rail and road system Intrested to see how this devolps Oliver
  3. The weathering really helps finish her off! I have some; so hope to knock something out of it soon, maybe a longer water tank for a upcoming (hopefully) project
  4. I am! If you can it is well worth it! If you do photography it is great too (and for inspiration for modelling too). Unfortunately I haven't although I would like too. They both seem to be spoken highly of! Oh yeah, I don't really see it happening either. Was it a King they had planned for 00 that doesn't seem to be beyond CAD- but yeah someone will surely; they are very popular in N & 00!
  5. Welcome! There were and I myself wish to model (some) in the future! Oh very much out of its comfort zone! They are and I think its credit to those who take the plunge in producing them Me too, I've got the 2 on the blog (so far) and they are great Oh definitely, I admit that is very high on my wish list. I'm very fortunate that 2 are preserved at the Foxfeild Railway near me I don't know much about that market- but it seems to be growing & considering the amount of liveries they were in and where they ended up (pretty much everywhere, no?) I think it would make sense to produce one, maybe? Me too!
  6. You are clearly more creative with Plasticard than I am. I can build walls.... That Austerity looks great! Like the striping.... I think some may be finding there way to my address....

  11. A little update on the 1F with its little info file. I've just added red rods that is all, but it does give it more of an industrial appearance.

  12. They both look great! Thanks for the suggestion and I will check them out- as I will our channel! What is the industrial shunter made from? Thanks for posting Oliver
  13. Ahh okay I see what you mean now. Would make an interesting project
  14. From the pictures it looks like the plug is also at the front
  15. Ladies and Gentlemen (and whoever else may be reading) We have been blessed much like many others I will be getting the NCB edition I hope to run with my W4 that recently received NCB transfers from Railtech. Anyone else hoping for some larger sentinels maybe for the future? All in all lovely to see some more industrial loco's (with detail differences too) Oliver
