  1. 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 Hunting around I came across the Airfix kit for Trevithick and a cheaper Minicraft version but that is a strange 1:38 scale while the Airfix is the more conventional 1:32, which is gauge 1 for railway modellers, so it might get a crew to attend to it. But all that to come, first I need the Postie.
  2. 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
  3. 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 & sods attached to it. This is where the problems arise as pix seem few and far between. Is there a walkaround anywhere, or even decent internals. So far most pix cover just the upper half with nothing at firebox/floor level. I would even be happy and very grateful if someone could post pix of the relevant Airfix part for me copy, to which I can then add obvious bits from what little I have found. It certainly won't be a superdetail job, and I still have to clear a hole for it on the workbench, however by getting started maybe it won't be shelved for lack of 1 part. ... Must find a small base and a single length of track. Be nice to have it looking a little less forlorn as I find locos off the rails quite sad ... Thx in advance. D.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. This is an example of a texturization technique with an H0 locomotive. You can observe its grainy rusty look.
  7. British Rail Class 08 diesel-electric shunting locomotive. Pics thanks to Rich Ellis.
  8. 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...
