This page is where I will showcase my finished models. The trials and tribulations of the builds can be found in the various blog pages


Shropshire and Montgomeryshire Railway No 2 Severn

 

The idea to build Severn came from a friend on RMWeb scratch building a model from an old drawing that was originally published in a 1960's edition of Model Railway News. I have always fancied having a go at scratch building and this seemed like a good place to start. It doesn't fit in with any of my modelling period or interests and was a purely done for fun and to see if I could.

Here are a few shots of her when she was finished.











I finally plucked up the courage to have a go at adding some of the lining that is evident in some of the photos that I have of Severn.















LNER Y6 Tram Engine

 

At Christmas a couple of years ago, Chris presented me with a pile of Connoisseur Models kits. Most of them were wagon kits, but one was this kit for a tram engine. She had first eyed one up while viewing a layout called Marske that is owned by an acquaintance in the north east.

















Nellie - A Connoisseur Models Starter kit

 

While browsing a stand at Halifax Show I spotted this kit for the princely sum of £35. My son had asked me to pick something up for father's day so I chose this. Being one of Jim's older kit's my example didn't have a backhead or bunker front. After fitting a Slaters backhead that I had in stock and scratch building a bunker front I found out that I could have obtained some spares from Jim. 

The kit was originally based on a LSWR C14 albeit simplified with no outside valve gear. Which means that in reality it doesn't represent any prototype so the end result is only limited by the imagination. I chose to finish it in post war LNER livery with a fictional number adding a toolbox from the spares box and a Westinghouse pump among other details. The tools that are scattered about came from the excellent Peter Roles range






























LNER J63

 

Here are some photos of the completed J63 before it gets weathered.
