Months in fact, whilst I have been self-shielding, and to some extent I am still self-shielding as the infection rate appears to be rising into Autumn; I rather think the second wave has already started, the question is how dangerous it will be compared to the first wave, making comparison to 1918-1919 when the second wave proved greater than the first. However, that aside, I have completed some mechanical restoration and building projects that had become shelved through lack of time, so that's quite a good feeling; although, it also means I have created more priming and painting for myself - talking of which, I have uploaded two new photographs to accompany the work on the 7mm LMC L&Y 2-4-2 which is nearing its painting stage.
The Russian Military model now has a frame around it and is also nearing its final stage: images to follow soon. The Matisa Support Coach project will also have new images soon; and much to my own surprise I am building a 4mm narrow gauge 009 model of a sewage works railway, inspired by 'Davyhulme Sewage Works and its Railway' by Robert Nicholls; from The Narrow Gauge Railway Society. Special Issue: number 232. Spring 2015. ISBN 978-0-9554326-8-2.
What a super little book, an absolutely fascinating read. I've never done narrow gauge before, and the project offers great scope for flat desolate 1950s landscape, hand painted back scene, and trundling wagons of detritus. Sludge Digestion Tank anyone?
