Banana Split - Part 1
Issue 5 (1986)
Chopping up 'flying bananas' (or, to be absolutely correct, their angular sisters from Swindon) is a perfectly acceptable pastime for any self-repsecting modeller, insists Monty Wells. Armed with the definitive book on the GWR AEC railcars, he has at last emerged from another marathon at the drawing board and workbench to discourse on the joys of bashing three Lima singles into an impressive 4mm finescale twin-set - another chapter in the story he calls 'The Romance of Blue Smoke and Black Oil'. In this, the first of two parts, he unveils a superb set of drawings, reviews the book and prepares the slab for the butchery to come.
Banana Split - Part 2
Issue 6 (1986)

Take as long as you like, starting... now.
