Hi again Pete,
Just popped over to Flickr to see the models. That loco is certainly different. I suspect it says more about me than the modelling but I instantly thought, ‘Flash Gordon’
The great thing, to my mind, about any narrow gauge is that is quite believable to imagine that ‘this is what was available/desired’ at the time, and so if the proportions look right a model is fine.
Alas, I find that in an awful lot of forums people ‘pass by on the other side’ saying nothing, it’s not just here.
Re size vs. 009; Graham (or Grum as he signs himself) also spent many years in 009 and he too found Gn15 initially huge. See his main thread here:viewtopic.php?f=1&t=10677
Now imagine me dabbling in 1/12, 1/6 and larger!
