O Gauge Heljan Warship

 

Below is a detailed and weathered (Light -Medium) Warship. After a coat of dilute matt black, 80% was wiped off and just left in all crevices to create shadow. Just airbrushing does not work for me. After detailing this loco does not fit back in the original internal packaging – it needs to be trimmed back! Hardly design clever this!!!!!!

O gauge Terrier for Norfolk Coke!!

The new owner of Norfolk Coke and Tar Layout is my son John. As I retained all my industrial Loco’s ready for another project, John has to re-populate the layout with small tank engines. I have no idea whether it will retain its name or be changed to a name more akin to BR 1950-60 era.

Anyway John purchased a Terrier to start his O Gauge steam collection and I of course offered to weather it for him. I did sell him four suitable wagons for the period and I know he wants a few more. I think it will end up more as a shunting plank than an engine shed. I will post further as more rolling stock is purchased and possibly a name change.

The layout will remain available for Exhibitions locally.
