Back in business

Operations have resumed after the glue has dried (and any excess ballast removed). The new station looks pretty decent, i'm so glad i decided to start again with that aspect of the layout.

Possible new N gauge project

I'm planning a second layout next year, a small N gauge one which will use this pallet as its base. It is still in the very early planning stages but i might be able to squeeze something fun in and give my N gauge rolling stock somewhere to play!

Project #079

The latest model building project is progressing well. Project #079 is am Embraer E190 airliner and is approaching the painting stage.

The new station

I have decided to tear up the station as it was too big, plus the card i used just didn't seem right. Instead i have created smaller platforms using foamboard. A main platform and a small stub the other side. The foamboard has been painted grey and i've also ballasted the track through the station. I think it looks a lot better now.

Project #078

Project #078 is now completed (bar the varnishing) and is the first Heller kit i've done. Its a Saab J29 in UN markings and has turned out pretty well.
