  1. Here I go again .... another bl**dy locomotive. I promised myself after spending many years (off and on) with my Flying Scotsman that I'd never make that mistake again. The road to Hell is paved with good intentions they say. Growing up as a wee lad in Fife Scotland in the 40's through to 1951 when we emigrated to Canada I was enamoured with steam engines ... the bigger the better. I saw and travelled behind many an A3 and A4 and on my trainspotting days my favourite place to be was on an embankment across from the local station. Frequently engines would arrive, detach from
  2. Been a while since I posted anything. My parents got me the Revell Big Boy Kit for Christmas. Interesting combination of fairly decent detail combined with handrails moulded as solid plastic fences... Anyhoo. Got here stuck together. Used the decals in the kit for number 4006 but the painting instructions seemed not quite right. If I were guessing, I would say that the painting instructions are based on 4006 as it currently stands, stuffed and mounted in St. Louis Museum of Transportation. Anyhoo, I went freelance on the paint looking at pictures of the running example 4014. Gunmetal for the '
  3. Well, I didn't notice this one coming but I'm in. With all the firsts in the world to choose from, I'm surprised how aviation this bg looks and wanted to broaden it out. I'm going with https://www.scalemates.com/products/product.php?id=109407&p=timeline which is The world's first steam locomotive, can't show you it yet as I've only just ordered it! Have to say not my first choice which was going to be the first locomotive to break the 100 mph barrier, City of Truro but Nimrod54 did this so brilliantly that I wouldn't come close, if you missed it here's his build
  4. Neé: 1961 LMS Kitson 0-4-0ST Boxed: 1973 Airfix 0-4-0 Saddle Tank Rehomed: 1980s Dapol BR Pug https://www.scalemates.com/kits/182057-airfix-r9-0-4-0-saddle-tank Missing front cab wall & firebox, 1 small internal lever
  5. Some people will call me a Traitor for abandoning the sky, others will welcome me to the 'real modelers' fraternity... ...but I will build my Itty Bitty Train! Ok so it's only a Saddle Tank but I'm still holding out on finding a cheap Class 08 or 31 (or maybe others) that remind me of the days of wild abandonment - ie childhood growing up near Bescot. Problems/questions/requests: I lost the front cab wall whilst moving house, fortunately all other pieces appear present. This shouldn't be too much an issue apart as its basically a flat wall, curved top, 2 round window holes and the odds &am
  6. SLSF #1355 on open air display at Garden St, Pensacola, FL. This locomotive was built by Alco as SLSF Consolidation type (2-8-0) Class 1306 #1318 in 1912, but was converted to a Mikado type (2-8-2) at the Frisco's main Shops in West Springfield, MO, in 1945. It was one of seven SLSF Consolidations converted to Mikados by the railroad between 1943 and 1946. Pics thanks to Mike Costello.
  7. Hi all, anyone had a crack at this kit? just pulled it out of my stash and took a closer look - does not look massively difficult but the detail seems very good. wondering if a build thread was in order... thanks, Leigh.
  8. This is an example of a texturization technique with an H0 locomotive. You can observe its grainy rusty look.
  9. British Rail Class 08 diesel-electric shunting locomotive. Pics thanks to Rich Ellis.
  10. Just finished the build, my first train model try which I enjoyed building. Looks more weathered in some of the pictures than it actually is somehow. Regards...
