Hornby Magazine. No less than 12 pages this time. WooHoo !
First up, we have a new series of £20 projects. The idea is that you take your loco plus a couple of crisp tenners and personalise it. This time I've had a go at a J94 adding one of those Giesel chimneys, buffer beams and other stuff including a whole lot of dirt. Because I didn't read the instructions properly, I went wrong so this is the story of how I bodged it right.
In The Clinic, a cherubic faced Phil answers some of your modelling questions including stuff about H&M Controllers, Z5's and brickwork.
Finally, this month's Parkers Guide is one I'm really proud of. A pair of heavily modified Hornby Skaledale buildings. When I say heavily modified, I mean with the aid of a big saw from the DIY shop. The models didn't know what hit them and hopefully I've shown that no matter how good a resin building is, it can still be treated as raw materials for a unique model you can be proud of.
This last one is probably my favourite project ever for the mag. I am really, really pleased with the results.
