    Cheers mate!

    Been doing some work on the nz120 modules. A week ago I emptied the crap outta the shed. It gave me the space to stand the 4 modules up so That I can work on them. Spent last weekend upgrading the electrical connectors between the modules and made heaps of power poles and some lamp poles for the yard. All have been stuck in positon. Added some…[Read more]

    Managed to spend a little time on the MMW container wagons tonight. Added brake air reservoir tanks and coupler’s to all 4 wagons. Just have to alter the bogie mounts to suit the Trackgang bogies and do the pipe framing on the IB wagons.
    Spent a lot of time lately do other scale jobs including 4 n scale American bodies repainted into NZR, and…[Read more]

    Haven’t been back to them since my posting. Must get time before the Tauranga outing in January. Have been working on a few other scale models instead.

  • A little bit of a side shift from my normal scale activities. Been repainting some n scale loco bodies for a customer and I think they’re starting to look presentable. picture is from a couple of day ago and some tidy up and paint finishing work has continued since then. Also doing an SD-9 body as a Da, but haven’t photographed it yet.

    Spent this weekend assembling some MMW brass etch container wagons. Have done 2 IA and 2 IB etches. After folding the etches up I then solder with standard solder, to firm up the wagons making them more rigid. In the process of adding the framing with brass square lengths to fill in the thin edge etch. Will take some pic’s to add to the commentary.

    Shame the Kaikoura layout didn’t seem to make an appearance on social media (as yet). For those who are unfamiliar with this layout, here’s my pics from the Chch show this year.

    Hey Modelers,

    All this time I haven’t started my own topic tread.
    Kit things keep ticking along. Unfortunately interest appears to have quieten over the last couple of years with only a handful of modeler’s publicly seaming to be active. But there’s still steady interest going behind the scenes I can say.
    Personally I’m now dividing my time…[Read more]
