Southern Rail Models CityRail Endeavour DMU quick look

Hi All
 I was happy to see my local hobby shop had in stock Southern Rail Models Endeavour
and Xplorer sets and was told that they are selling quiet well but was surprised there
was not much buzz on the Internet about there arrival. So i handed over $460.00 and
got a 2803/2853 Cityrail set. They look quiet good I'm glad i made the purchase

Now some prototype pics
Till next time

AndIan Models 4 wheel water gin a quick look

Hi All
 I recently purchased the new AndIan Models 4 wheel water gin off eBay
WOW what a little beauty..............................................and a quick look
Some lost wax castings a etch for the steps a jig for the brake
gear and a urethane tank plus some decals
I wish more kits and RTR stuff would come out with
the disc wheels with the 4 holes in them
This etch looks like a whole lot of fun to put together
I really like these AndIan kits and again a great subject choice the LWW and BLV
and now this and i cant wait till the turret tender comes out.
Till next time

Some little projects

Hi All
 Not much modelling happening lately with a real lack of enthusiasm and
a little stay in hospital but i managed to almost finish a few little projects
The first is a IDR BPV 20400 a nice easy little kit but with one
problem the code board is way to long for the decal and i didn't notice
until it was to late.
The second is a IDR B open wagon and this was the easiest kit ever
with a ready 2 run austrains four wheel chassis most of the work is
done although i did stuff up the the door stop i should have taken more
care making these just need to weather them up and then there done
Till next time
