  1. I know you're quite a tough taskmaster on yourself, but that really is a superb piece of modelling. I look forward to seeing what is next on the workbench.
  2. I think that's 975025 Caroline https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/975025_Caroline IIRC It's used for either driver training/route learning or inspection of the line.
  3. By Co-incidence I got asked to donate blood yesterday. You'll know mine if you get it as it's Teak coloured with a hint of weathering....
  4. Interesting Dave. I'll have a look for that version as for something like a tender drive it could be laid flat on the top of the frames.
  5. It would have been easier if the OP had posted that he'd just run over a kitten.... Which reminds me, when I change the truck to go for a twin wheel for a better spread...........of the load..
  6. I was late to the party, Mike had done 80+% by the time I met him. Mike rang me out of the blue one Sunday night, he had been on holiday in Wales and had stayed at a B&B, when there he met someone, who knew someone, who knew me. Neither of us have a clue who they were but he managed to get in touch with me and we've stayed in touch since. We have very different approaches to how to build, but both are enjoyable.
  7. Having visited and seen the layout I can also say it's fun to operate. I helped Mike with a few things as well as giving him a copy of a 10' plan I have of Sandy so I am rather biased.
  8. You're not. Good modelling is just that, and we can all learn from other disciplines.
  9. That myth was dispelled at the start of the thread
  10. I have an issue with sites such as Pinterest. Members there post anything without crediting its source. https://www.creativefuture.org/pinterest/ I don't like putting watermarks on anything as it ruins the enjoyment of an image, but I can see why so many do. I found someone selling copies of one of my images a few years ago on Ebay (they acted quickly and took it down when I showed I had the original negative still)
  11. Whichever can avoid buckshot...
  12. How many is the Pigeon able to carry at any one time ?
  13. John was a gentleman and will be missed by many in the local clubs he frequented (Sandy Transport society was one) By co-incidence Pauline is a distant relative of mine, John used to say all of Bedfordshire was related somewhere along the line.
  14. I love this thread, You make something which is top quality and I think "I'll pinch that idea" ...then a couple of hours later you come back with "I wasn't happy so I've made an even better version of it and the first one's are in the scrap bin" ... I turned my soldering iron on the other day and was about to solder something when I could have sworn I heard it say "sure you don't need to check the S7 thread to see if you can make it better"..
