    Quite pleased after a couple of days messing about, four locos off the shelf of doom and within a couple of hours of completion. The three Hymeks have had laser glazing and individual numbers fitted, and the 25 glazed, and numbered in preparation for weathering. All four had been sitting round waiting for a ‘get to it’ moment, and last week have some opportunities to do some work whilst not dedicating significant time to them.

    7F13EE48-BD7F-4557-9943-91975AE3E12D.jpeg In an epic moment of stupidity I ordered and fitted numbers for 74xx 7442, for this Bachmann conversion of a 64xx to a late 74. I should have ordered 7444.

    However, my references tell me 7442 was shedded for a short while at Carmarthen, so my head tells me that’s ok until 7444 plates arrive, that one almost a life long resident at 87G

    A recently found image not used in OPC’s ‘Railway Elegance’ ....

    These Hymeks do come up well!

    That rather reminds me of a "railway people picture", where they could well be discussing something slightly deviant, that may save a bit of time - in the style of my avatar!

    Thank you chaps, that was the idea, to use Modelu’s figures to make a small grouping that works and looks natural.

    I do like Modelu's figures, they have excellent proportions, that seem very natural.

    I suspect that is because they are scans of real people.

    ...And the positioning of them... its spot on.
    Like in my picture, we are discussing something but are not stood too close together.

    I ma be reading too much into the pictures but the first one is definitely "work related", whereas the second image is talking about the pub later, or maybe what won the 2:30 at Newton Abbot ;)

    For me that’s the real benefit of using the Modelu figures, scanned from real people their stance is entirely natural, and just moving the same figures around, can depict an entirely different story with just a few degrees or millimetres.

    These pictures really depict for me that ultimate act of storytelling using our chosen hobby as the stage. This hobby is so versatile, wonderful pictures.

    Off the shelf of doom, Ye Olde Craftsman 02 is reaching completion. Surprised how much technique I’d forgotten, a reminder of skill fade if not practiced!

    The 02 very near completion. For a simple kit it scrubs up well

    A heavily modified Bachmann 24 shunts Shelfie2. Keeping fingers crossed I’ve accepted two exhibition invites for S2 next year, subject C19 of course!

    WIP weathering another shelf queen resident, it needed a replacement chimney, and a re-number from an LNER example.

    More O2. Tender handrails on near side have been replaced with correct length (taller) versions AA07D4CF-929C-4939-BDF9-41F9B3DF3EF2.jpeg

    A work train arrives at Shelfie2. The coaches are some of the Hattons Genesis range of generic Pre-Group stock engineering prototypes, that they kindly allowed me to have a look over.

    Here they are on Shelfie3 which is in the mock up stages, the layout will in fact be primarily D&E operations.
