  1. Cheers Chris.. I had a feeling it was going to be a scratch building job ! BillyD

    Wow thats an interesting beast Steve (never heard of it before, bu there again I'm not really into trucks). Like what you've done with it and the subtle weathering. BillyD
  3. Beautiful build. I have the Micro Mir UB-1 and am confused regarding the railings on top of the conning tower. It's shown on the box art but not included in kit. Photos show them without railings though .. I'm confused. But you have done an excellent job and considering it is so small really nice weathering. BillyD

    KV-2, Trumpeter 1:35

    Fantastic build and weathering. Like the way the rear hatch on the turret is partly open.. adds a bit of mystery. BillyD
  5. Love the 2CV had about 3 over the years. I'd love to see yours, but Photobucket have taken a big dislike to your photos and replaced them with what I would describe as quite a forceful notice..... ooh eh missus ! BillyD

    Scale model BMW R100RT????

    Hi... Try this... https://www.scalemates.com/kits/936710-aoshima-023488-bmw-r100rt BillyD PS ... Looks like its discontinued... may crop up on eBay?
  11. Hi John, Mine is only a tiddler of a layout, only 4'x2', but with a bit of imagination, and fair tail wind, things can be achieved (I hope! only in its infancy at the moment). But as you say the amount of stuff available in N Gauge is fantastic and the amount of detail Graham Farish and Dapol manage to put in to their locos and rolling stock is incredible - to the point of perhaps making them a bit delicate for constant handling. I would recommend N Gauge to any aspiring railway modeller strapped for space. Just wouldn't go for Peco Setrack again. Wish I'd gone for the Streamline instead .. oh well. Best wishes BillyD
  12. John, nice work... I've got a Graham Farish N Gauge Deltic in the same livery. Beautiful, powerful machines. Regards BillyD
