If you are selling stuff you should really be in the "Small Suppliers" section

Have spoken to Andy Y about this and he's fine with it. As ive said this place is to show what is going on with my workbench, i do post items for sale in Classifieds and periodically will update my small suppliers thread - but the purpose of that is just to let people know who I am and what I offer. 

 

Think that should suffice surely ?? 

 

Lets move on shall we .... and get back to some modelling .......

If you want more pictures of tamworth castle its stored at the churnet valley railway awaiting its next turn to be loved and restored but the name is painted on rather than a plate and is unofficial i think from memory

Absolutely fantastic collection of engines Ben. Seen your posts numerous times on Facebook groups, but only just found your thread.

 

Very much looking forward to seeing how your EWS 90 turns out. Hoping Bachmann announce one sooner rather than later.

Nice work Ben, liking the 47s and 90s particularly. IMHO I reckon the PD Ports blue is much darker than the blue you've used, and is nearer the DRS Blue used on DRS 66s than the lighter Maritime shade. Not sure whether the photo looks lighter but to me that's the Maritime shade not PD Ports livery.

Hi Jack - may be a trick of the light .... did use a darker blue than the Maritime one used previously .....
