First thing to understand, my 'Challenge' layout will NOT be finnished in 2008,
(in fact apart from stock and track nothing else has been done
Any way I have been invited to display the layout / demonstration of large scale-minimum gauge modelling at Clevedon (Somerset UK) on the March 28 & 29 March 2009.
So a quick rumage in the 0e stock box found a magic Train diesel loco, which I have made a new body for. The Original body has been carefully removed. The new one from styrene sheet has been built a a 'snug' fit over the original footplate. Now all it needs is a trip in front of the spray can in the morning, some detailing, a cab (weather / rain shelter) and weathering. Comments as usual, alway welcome.
The figure in the background is one of these two. 'Vera' is being "Africanised", The chap is a dead ringer for a Dutch 'ex-pat' I met in Uganda. Just need to get his arms the same sort of rusty colour mine have gone
Both these figures have had some serious surgery as both topped out at over 7 feet (2.1m) Tall.
