Bowaters (ish) in 009: January 2010
Bowaters (ish) in 009. Tuesday, 19 January 2010. My main concern with this layout was not to get trapped by over enthusiastic attention to the prototype line. Rather, to just establish in model form, hopefully the very essence of this grimy industrial concern. . Please excuse the poor diagram. Its a functional, yet ugly hotch potch of photoshop and of the baseboard itself (in striking gloss blue, as its recycled ply). At least you'll be able to see what is intended. Thursday, 14 January 2010. This is my...
Bowaters (ish) in 009
Bowaters (ish) in 009. Thursday, 14 January 2010. This is my rendition of the Bowaters 0-4-0 fireless loco 'Victor. It is a still available Whitemetal Kit by Golden Arrow. Http:/ www.goldenarrow.me.uk/services.htm. Its designed to go on either of two chassis, both now defunct. One being the Bachmann dockside shunter 0-4-0, the other the infamous Ibertren 'cuckoo' 0-4-0. With both chassis, they are employed backwards, as on the prototype, the cylinders were reversed.

Bowaters (ish) in 009
Bowaters (ish) in 009. Wednesday, 6 January 2010. Another reason I wanted to model this line is that I felt another welsh themed 009 slate layout was not how I wanted to begin modelling in this scale. . I may one day so, but I wanted to make an impression if I could. Images to follow. . Subscribe to: Post Comments (Atom). My other blog;. Http:/ bertslocopainting.blogspot.com/.

BRON HEBOG: Now, Where Was I?
Friday, 8 May 2015. Now, Where Was I? I've resumed work on the house I'm building for the Oberon Wood scene after finishing the DZ wagons and getting them dispatched. It's been rather a hectic week in the day job, as you might well imagine, so I haven't been able to get that much done, but I did snatch a spare hour to cut the missing slate roof section and fabricate the dormer window. The next task is to make up the chimney and add the ridge tiles. Subscribe to: Post Comments (Atom). This is going to be ...
BRON HEBOG: Excavator In Action
Saturday, 2 May 2015. The first of Stefco's dioramas is back in business and here's the proof. Himself managed to get to the bottom of the mystery about what was preventing the lorry from reversing and completing the full sequence. A tiny micro switch case had come apart causing it to switch the reversing action off. So as you can see once the lorry has received the required number of buckets of sand from the excavator it sets off. Very clever, eh? Subscribe to: Post Comments (Atom). Before I can begin o...
BRON HEBOG: Dduallt Gallery
Moelwyn and Britomart combine on a re-creation of Ian Rudd's 60th birthday special. Lyd appears 'out of era' on the 1980's cherry red set. 80's vintage 'Super Fairlie' Earl of Merioneth about to pass under Rhoslyn Bridge. Cricceth Castle at the rear of the push-pull set. DLG begins the climb around the spiral - note the spoof Purple Moose sponsored buffet carr. The much missed Mountaineer awaits the road in the down loop. Prince - modelled with 80's oil tank in the tender - enters the down loop. Himself ...

Paul's Fantastic Workbench!: Playing With Trains by Sam Posey.
Confessions of a serial kit builder. Sunday, 2 August 2015. Playing With Trains by Sam Posey. I found this book by chance on Amazon, and thought that it might make good holiday reading. I was right. The book is highly readable, so well written in fact that I finished it in the first two days of my break. My copy came from across the ocean, cost me whole ten pence plus £2.80 postage. 5 August 2015 at 18:27. 9 August 2015 at 11:00. Photo now added, I dont like blog posts without a pic. or two.
