    Hello Andy, Having a little break from the N Class for little a while, and have started a very old kit l bought cheap a while back, and that is a ex GWR 2225 by Jim Harris (Acorn) / Alan Bullock (Javelin) many moons ago, unfortunately there are no instructions to follow, so should be fun.

    Really getting on with the 2251, problem was that bits were missing on the body etches, so decided to purchase a resin body from Ex-JLTRT (now MM1) for £39, the major problem was the body was 4mm too long, so as the kit is very old l decided that the body was right, and added an extra 4mm to the footplate, it looks a lot better now, still have some bits to do to finish...

    Getting on with my 2251 at last, decided to go for a matt black finish as it will be weathered very heavily and will be very busy on shunting duties hopefully... DSC07083.JPG DSC07084.JPG

    .Decided to make use of an old lan kirk coach kit that l messed up a while back, so decided to shorten it to make a southern (style) baggage van, totally non-descript but it looks the part... DSC07099.JPG DSC07098.JPG DSC07097.JPG DSC07092.JPG

    Made some major errors on the first baggage bogie van, (1) The windows were too small and (2) it was way too tall, so l have had to almost rebuild it, but it was worth it as it looks much better now... DSC07100.JPG DSC07101.JPG

    lts designed to have the box filled with some lead weight and double-sided sticky tape some 2000-3000 grit paper on the bottom, then slip the coach over and get some motive power to drag it along the track...lt will be finished in all over yellow and will be called Doris Mk1 (its all fun anyway) DSC07109.JPG DSC07110.JPG DSC07111.JPG DSC07112.JPG
