August Hornby Mag

"Parkers Guide" in the August issue of Hornby Magazine covers my my build of the Parkside GWR Horsebox kit.

It's a complicated beast - far fiddlier than the van with holes in the side I had expected. The underframe is very impressively detailed and outside there are all sort of bits to fix. Most of the later are in ABS for strength.

I managed to knock a few of these bits off after taking the photographs (well, most of them, at least one is posed so you can't see the missing lamp iron) but an e-mail to Parkside resulted in a new sprue of replacements arriving in th post a couple of days later - excellent service.
