Been quiet of late - too much stuff going on and none of it modelling!! :x
Anyhow, tonight I hope to get some piccies done of the Medfits and SNCF's. Its been a long haul but they are getting there!
I made a decision and am sticking to it - get stuff FINISHED!! :lol:
Having got my paws on new Hornby Trout mind, I can see one getting a seeing to soon.
Ok, the BR Brake project is the priority for the near future but hey... I think this Trout can be fettled with a minimum of effort - no-brainer :)

The feeling of being on the cusp of triumph fills the nostrils :lol:
After a holiday of muddleheaded time management and far to much ginger beer, several items now await a good talking to with an airbrush...
Well apart from lamp irons and..... :roll:

So you think its all quiet at Padgate Works then??? :o
Far from it, the batch of 1/224 vans is coming together very nicely - serious brake gear bits beckon.
As for the stock near finishing?
Well my chum Mr Faulkner finally managed to persuade the intransigent ALPS printer into life and I have the means of lettering up the Medfits and the auld vans of an engineering stock nature - huzzah!! :lol:
More to get done soon as well.
Mostyn is bound for Newcastle soon; well Gateshead to be pedantic, so its get doon an geht wi it... Ooooo rah!! ;)

Now it is fair to say that things have been quiet from the "Works" of late. Lets just say a lot of issues got in the way which are now no longer issues :face:
Haphazardly, some projects are bumping along which I aim to bring here over the coming weeks.
New projects beckon but I am staying mum about them for now, here on FRED.
Lets get finished what needs finishing - something I may have said before???? Ahem!! :x :? :lol:

After a year of sheer hell, the "Works" is slowly grinding away.
I have much updating and enlightening to do so.....
I'll be back soon - WIBBLE! :o :lol: :?

If you've just had the year I've just had I sympathize with you!

Hi,

I can certainly vouch for the fact that Iain has had a year to forget but, hopefully, is now on the path to better health.

There are at least a dozen examples of Iain's wagon wizardry edging towards the finishing line so we should soon see them on Fred.

Cheers,
Richard

I am sorry to hear of your year from hell and I am glad that you are on the mend Iain. I look forward to seeing the fruits of your labours
