  1. Nice photos sir. I really need to get on with modelling again, recently I've been having one of my breaks from the hobby. It does provide a great escape from the stresses of the world though so I think it's time to organise the workbench (read dining table) and just get on with stuff! Cheers.
  2. Rich, Yes you're right about the Loriots. Looking at ours most still have their paint and markings from the early 90s when in BR engineers traffic, so yes a mix of black and dirt. How did you find the Loriot kit? I've got one to do at some point, and just in case I measured up the chain box although I'm not too bothered about it being to scale. Chere's, wayne
  3. Nice job James. The 'Merlin' scheme is my favourite of the more modern HST liveries, probably because it reminds me of the Intercity swallow scheme... But then, I'm on old fashioned git! Cheers, Wayne
  4. Hi Rich, It's true what they say, you can't just have one. I'm a bit miffed at how you were missing an axle box as I'm sure they're moulded as part of the bogie frame? Cheers, Wayne
  5. Hello, I've just found this thread again for a read through as I have a couple of Sharks on the go. I like the look of the weathering on the olive green van, can you remember what technique you used for it as you've captured the look of ingrained dirt and work livery to good effect there. Cheers, Wayne
  6. Crikey! It's been a while since I posted in here. I put that down to a combination of a change of job and associated work pattern and also busy with exhibiting my EM gauge China clay layout as well as building stock for it. A while ago I was unsure what to do with Dragon Steels. I went through the options of selling it, turning it into a small US based switching layout (yes, I have a slight interest in such things) or rebuilding it. Eventually I decided at some point I would go for the last option, mainly because it's the first layout I built and finished all by my own hand and the
  7. Hi James, I'll echo Richards comment, I have a few ZKVs on the go but I won't be building, painting and weathering 40!! Good job on those, I like the grubby ones in particular. Even in my period of the late 80s and early 90s they were that colour so it'll be interesting to me to try and replicate that look. It's interesting that you did the 'Tfe' tagged one, I looked at doing it but ruled it out when I saw it dates from 1999 (my time period stops in early 1996, right before EWS!). Cheers, Wayne
  8. Hi Gareth, Yes that's me, although I can't take credit for Trevanna because I bought it from the previous owner. I do however have some small plans for it as the scenery is in need of a refresh before it goes to shows again (whenever that will be allowed again?!) however the stock is all my own work. I was going to completely rebuild Dragon Steels from scratch but I've decided to extend the existing one outwards and use the new board I had in mind for it for the Bristol based layout, a sort of two layouts for one if that makes sense. Cheers, Wayne
  9. Hi Gareth, Nice to have a better look at this, it was me who asked about it on Facebook. Llantisilliant looks like it has done similar to what I had in mind, but slightly different. I'll look forward to seeing more. Cheers, Wayne
  10. Hi Rich, Nice to see the chain box on the Loriot. I'm thinking of adding one to mine as we have one in the P-Way dept on the DFR and I'm frequently driving an excavator on or off it. Did you do the chain box from a drawing or just guestimate it, and what plasticard did you use? Cheers, Wayne PS: enjoy the Sturgeon.
  11. Can't see anything wrong with the image to be honest. I do like Pugs, it looks right at home there! I like the look of the groundwork, I should really take some lessons in scenery as I'll need to give Trevanna an overhaul soon and scenery is something I'm not great at. Cheers, Wayne
  12. Always look forward to seeing a nice pair of 37s! I'll get my coat and leave now! Layout is looking good Will. Wayne
  13. Hiya Rob, Likewise, I haven't been over here in a while so I thought I'd come and see what's happening in the world of all things wool related! Indeed, it easy to get distracted. And just to prove that I'm not completely anti steam, one project I want to do is a small Welsh colliery based shunting plank. Maybe it'll be my first flirtation with Swedish furniture! Wayne
  14. About flipping time! Seriously though, it'll be interesting to see how a couple of diesels look. I thought I was going to have to model something green and place it on the layout when you're not looking. Look forward to seeing what you come up with. Cheers, Wayne
  15. I decided to bring Trevanna out of hibernation today so I could have a play. The last time it was ran was back in November 2019 when I took it to the EM Society modelling workshop, it had a couple of shows booked for 2020 but of course Covid put a spanner in the works. Pleasingly everything ran okay apart from a bit of jerky running due to dirty loco wheels, I also looked at the layout itself and came up with a couple of jobs to smarten the presentation up. The plan is to get it ready for shows again... Whenever that will be! Anyway enough blathering on, h
