Got a bit of a bargain with those 4 Clive. Love the BG and the 3rd Open. Are they Comet do you think?

Phil

They maybe, the sleeper is on an Airfix chassis so might be overlays.

That little Van might be in one of my Books. Could you do a bit more of a side on view please? Comet do an Open3rd/Sleeper; think I have one somewhere? One of those Roundtuit jobs.

I would have said hound van too, but it does not have space for the person who whips them. I am sure their is a technical name for them.

Tonight I have been making roofs for some coaches I am making, as they get nearer that Mortimore nearly built look I will take some snaps.

 

Tonight's song is an old one

 

Despite me playing various Icelandic bands some of you may not have bothered to learn Icelandic so here is a version for you,

 

 

The Icelandic version is better in my mind.

And finally the little van thingy, too small for a horse box but looks like a hound van or something similar. It is a white metal kit so I presume it is based on a prototype, any ideas?

The little van thingy has been identified by a mate on a fcaebook group as being a Southeast Finecast Bullion Van http://www.sefinecast.co.uk/Wagons/Wagons Page 1.htm?fbclid=IwAR327S3V9x38Y6VqLUCT3jkLOLFtMqlLxFu1O6pgCCZ0twunGoItgK5I3UQ

Not worth its weight on gold.

Hi Cive,

 

With Au at £1353.60 OZT and Ag at £18.30 currently, it might be worth its weight in Silver.

Hi Clive,

 

Is there an additional swear box in operation for the mention of the bold and underlined word to fund such a purchase ?

Ah but I never painted it so it is a free use of the word when talking about a model.

I know painted is rare for Sheffield Exchange, but if i say 50p then would that be the nearest offer you've had so far?...

Working on that logic, when i sneak in with a can of primer then there will be no issue because you won't have been responsible for the painting :crazy_mini:

Hi Young Clive, I've not been in for a while, but saw these Girls and thought of you.

 

 

I must admit I do not see young ladies and instantly think of Clive, but then each to their own.

Hi Richard,

 

I suspect that this is because Clive was not a lady in his younger days, unless there is something considerably worse than the GWR that we do not yet know of !!!!!!

Be afraid........very afraid.

are we brave enough to ask what the answer to that question is? Can there really be something more terrifying than those three letters.
