Make the most of it, that’s the nearest you’re going to get to a Christmas greeting. Many modellers of my age got their early kit building experience with Airfix and Kitmaster before discovering the pre-coloured HO scale continental kits from the likes of Kibri, Faller and Heljan, which found homes on British OO scale layouts […]

There’s not been much happening with the summer, children off school and other domestic issues but these two have made their way back on to the workbench along with another two Heljan class 47s (though destined for elsewhere and not West Halton). More updates soon.

Wontonget Model Railway

A bit more done on the model, have been getting used to the NCE controller and generally feeling okay with the progress of the model but as usual with a bit of aggro on the way, some self inflicted some not, so where to start………………….first the own goal……………. Some idiot (possibly me) decided to start […]
