Back to the past

A Liliput equipment van has been bought which is an older version of the second wagon bought for Eskalon way back in 2014.

A few years ago i did a series of Airfix railway kits, building up a little OO scale train. I've bought another Airfix railway kit, this one a railbus. Building has commenced and it is Project #076.

The latest model project, Project #075 is a Messerschmitt Bf109G-6. Its not the first i've done so i completed this one in Swiss Air Force colours. Its come out pretty well. Usually i glue the propeller in place but on this one i let it rotate freely. Never again though, made painting the prop a right pain!

Coaching stock upgrade

The HOe fleet has seen a lot of expansion over the last couple of years including 2 new locos this year alone, however the coaching stock fleet has remained at 3... until now. Three new coaches have arrived, in lovely brown livery with a bear face on them (really!) Here Falcon takes the coaches on their first test run. It was Falcon's final duty before going into storage for a few months as part of the new fleet rotation plan.

The station

I've started again with the platform for Mäusestadt station. I've gone for a much bigger (and lower) platform space that fills in between the tracks. I'll put a top layer (probably grey paper) over the card layers... then its time for buildings and people!
