Very nice work.

The body kit is only £12.50 Daniel - cheap enough that if you like it you don't really have to have an O9 layout to justify it! Maybe pop a dummy chassis in and make a micro diorama to display on?

It is not about the price.
I am already preparing for leaving in a couple of years 1/32 because it is becoming too small for my eyes.
I still have a little 09 Mogul I bashed on a Minitrix mechanism and simply can't give it the finishing touches because my eyes.
I had spared some 09 kits from my FCALV modekls range thinking some day I would build a layout for them, but last year I was forced to accept that wasn't going to happen and sold all of them.
To make it worse, there are two things that can easily spoil my pleasure at modelling: globes and magnifiers.
But thank you anyway.

Sorry to hear that you have problems with your eyes Daniel. But, it does make me even more impressed with the standard that you currently model at!

Thank you for your words Si.

To be honest, I don´t see really good what I am doing. But I enjoy a lot doing it and i have a bit of a sense of how is it growing.
I really see it and learn just when I see the photos.
