Diemas Ain't What Dey Used To Be

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

Hi Bill,
very nice works.:)
The engine looks great but the seat?!? I think it´s to big for the little machine. Please placed a driver to show the dimensions of the seat.

greetings from germany
Freddy

Hi Freddy - it is a big(ish) seat compared to the size of the loco, but it is a small loco! Here's its driver, Cuddy Ekerslyke, in the driving seat

He fills the seat pretty well, and says it's very comfortable.

Makes a good looking little loco. Wonder what the ride on that seat is like.
