Thanks for the kind words guys.

Jonathan, I truly doubt that my effort is neater than yours. I've seen you work and it really is exceptional.

Suddenly, there were two fish vans... Two more to go...

Very Nice. Shame to paint them really!

It does seem like a shame to paint them Will. However, they'll be remaining in this condition for a little while yet.

Finding myself with a bit of time to kill yesterday, I decided to make a start on the 2mm Association LNER/GER Mac K etches. However, I got stuck in and completed the model.

My latest build, an ex-GCR Mac N from the 2mm Association etches.

It was a challenging build but an enjoyable one. I stole the buffers from a spare loco body as they were the closest match to the drawings I had. I've still got to fit wheels but I'm out of 5.1mm diameter wheelsets at the moment so will have to buy some more.

It's been far too hot in the shed the last couple of days to continue painting and lining the spare Dapol corridor tender described on my loco tread. Therefore, I've grabbed my work tray and a few bits and de-camped down into the dining room and made a start on my second 2mm Association Toad E etched kit.

The basic chassis has been built but there are a lot of details to add to this before I turn my attention to the body. Despite the kit being drawing to 2mm scale, it is actually slightly longer than the venerable Peco version and the first one runs well using Farish wheels and 2mm Association conversion axles.

The Toad E has progress a bit further today.

I think now is a good time to do some cleaning up before adding any more details.

Other than vac pipes, some couplings and roof fittings, I'm going to call this build complete.

Looks complete enough to me, so why not?
