  1. Hi All, This piqued my interest for some bizarre reason and I bought it. The plan is to put it on a sea base, that can be either with sail or anchor. I have so much to learn but haven't a clue on where to start. Suggestions on a couple of good reference books, modelling guides, what's wrong with the kit, what needs replacing...you know the drill. Stuart
  2. Hi folks, I thought you might be interested in the contents of this box of heavy plant: There's a stall selling all kinds of Kibri vehicles at our local model railway show, and at the most recent one I cracked and bought one. I wasn't really sure what to expect as some model railway kits are pretty ancient, but in the box this looks rather nice: The mouldings are sharp, there's clear glazing and separate framing so nothing to mask It's also got decently fine railings and looks to make up into a suitably impressive vehicle. The only real problem is the sheet of cut-out stickers rather than decals. And obviously I don't know how well it fits, but I guess I'll find out in due course. NB: It might be a good companion for my other mining truck! Cheers, Will

  16. I've just finished this wonderful little kit today. It is the Highway Miniatures 1/87 scale 1923 Mack Ladder Truck that I have been building for a good friend of mine with a collection of real fire engines himself. It's a great little kit, packed with detail and working features. Not too bad for a (previously to me) unknown manufacturer this side of The Pond. Here's a link to my WIP thread: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235002580-187-1923-mack-aerial-ladder-truck/ Here is the write up of the actual truck quoted from the kit instructions: This 1923 vintage Mack 65ft aerial ladder truck was very popular in New York, Chicago, and other big cities in the 1920s. Actually, they were older horse-drawn ladder wagons, which were updated by converting to a motorized power unit. The ladders were raised by spring power, which was encased in the long tubes mounted in the center of the turntable. The spring power was controlled by a foot brake pedal, which came up between the tubes to the steps. The turntable was rotated manually, by the handwheel standing upright on the left side of the steps. To raise the ladders, the steering wheel was lifted off and hung on the side frame, the seat was rotated out of the way, and the brake released. The extension ladder could then be raised by the handwheels attached to the winch arrangement which had cables running up to the top of the stationary ladder, over pulleys, back down and attached to the bottom of the sliding ladder. Winding the cable on the winch drum, raised the ladder.
  17. Finally got this Busch 1/87 GM bus finished. Here's the link to the WIP page. http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234985178-ho-gm-fishbowl-bus/

  19. This is an example of a texturization technique with an H0 locomotive. You can observe its grainy rusty look.
  20. 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...
