  1. Recent doings on theBlackney workbench I've painted a couple of Modelu figures. Painted and weathered the crate and added lifting rings. Started a Parkside/Peco Grampas.
  2. One way around the conundrum is to choose a place where shorter trains were regularly run with large engines, Somwewhere like the Kinswear branch when trains were divided at Newton Abbot with half going down the branch, still hauled by a Castle or in later days a Warship or Western and the other half went on to Plymouth and Cornwall.
  3. Thats because it has just been unloaded from the wagon, but it might take him some time to work out how to lash it down.
  4. After waiting almost a yera young Frank Drake now has a load on his lorry. The crate ( yet to be painted) was made from plastic card. Frank has now moved from his lorry and is now taking a break on the plinth of the crane after securing the hook.
  5. I'v built countless wagons in both 4 and 7 mm and therefore applied many transfers and I've never had any problems. In fact the recent 7mm ones I've not even used gloss as a base, but I do use Humbrol Decalfix which seems to work well. The only time I've had decals/transfers split were some very old coach lining ones. An example of the the results of the new approach.
  6. It certainly worked well for the GWR, Tony
  7. David I used Lifecolor's Dust and Rust set. I can't remember exactly the mixture but 2 of the colours are Light rust 1 and light rust 2 so i imagine they were the largest element in the mix+ a tad of rust base colour. The two light shades do have a more yellowy appearance particularly the number 2 which do givw the more recent rust colours.

  9. Having collected the full minerals 8749 leaves Blackney.
  10. Another O gauge offering The Pannier ia a minerva model, weathered by me and the first mineral is a Parkside, an exMOWT, was built and weathered by me.
  11. After picking up the loaded wagons 8749 has run round its train an is about to leave Blackney.
  12. I certainly do Tony and that is the photo I was thinking of.
  13. 8749 arrives at Blackney with the morning empties for the colliery.
  14. Thought you might like another look at 8749
