The little Porter is now fully Anglicised so I took a few more pictures the other morning of it at work in the yard.

Lovely stuff, Peter.
I was doing 1/32nd about 7 years ago, but had no space, but still prefer it to all the others.

Don't forget slot racing bodies for this scale, guys. My chum has done some nice road cars, including Volvo Amazon, SAAB 99, Land Rovers and of particular interest to our Murrican chums, a Chevy and Ford step side pick-ups , which are especially nice. All resin slot car bodies are around 25-35 pounds each, but most are very good (says the man who made over 30 masters for them:-) ). PM me for details.

There is not enough crossover between hobbies. Bit of a hobby horse of mine. For instance real scale rope is the province of model ship builders. And a flush/sunken rivet impresser for 1/32nd scale is available from ScaleModelShop for 9 quid. It's intended for flush rivets on model aircraft....and so on and so forth.

Cheers,
Martin

Thanks Martin, I think you are right about crossover interests in hobbies. I learnt a lot by going to a meeting about model soldiers, some superb vehicles as well to give me some ideas.
We can all learn something from others I'm sure.

Regards Peter M

The quad has always been popular with the public at exhibitions and it's a bit of a favourite of mine too. So one morning last week I set the layout up and had an operating session.
Now I have a decent camera taking pictures has become an enjoyable part of the session.







A few pictures of the quad shuffling wagons around the yard late one afternoon.

A further selection of photos taken while checking the layout over prior to an exhibition. They were taken in our conservatory which is ideal as it gives a bright all round light. With a small layout like this now that I have a decent camera taking pictures adds another dimension to modelling.

Number 1 is my favorite.

I have to think that you must have more locos than cars. ;)

Keep going, cobber.

You are right Herb I do have more locos than cars. It is a tiny layout so I like a variety for the paying public to see at Exhibitions.
There is one thing for sure, no one else will have the same motive power that I have.

An assortment of pictures of the Fordson railtruck working in the yard on different occasions. I have assumed the drive would only be needed on one side as the driving axle would be solid. With its three forward speeds and one reverse gear it would be of limited use really.
In our model world though we don't have to worry about practicalities like that. The driver is an ex Germam tank crew member who is found relaxing and caught playing cards. I have modified the pose slightly.

Peter,
those spud sacks look very convincing in their see-through-ness.
How did you do them?

Martin
