Now I've cleared the Llynfordd work, it's time to clear some of those half started projects. Working on the principle that on an 009 layout there are never enough locos I started this. It began life as a Chivers Bagnall (it is pictured elsewhere on the other pages) that hit the deck and came away with a busted cab. Thus this is a little bit of the Irishman on the horse - 'If I wanted to go there, I wouldn't start from here.'
It is what a friend of mine would call a 'styrene bash' - RTR chassis (Ibertren Cuckoo) commercial tank moulding and plastic. the Chivers blob is terrible, but I don't want to throw it. Happy with the footplate, and spectacle, but yesterdays work on the cabside will be replaced as I think the cab cut-out is too big in the cold light of day.
On another note I see that yesterday topped the 125 page views for this page in a single day for the first time, and overall page views are heading toward 20,000 with total hits 30,000 plus.
Considering I don't write regularly (yet?) for one of the mags, I find this quite startling.
Thank you for dropping by.
