Modelling British Railways Diesel Locomotives
The idea has been floating around my mind for a while - let's get photos of all the BR diesel classes and put them together in order of their TOPs numbers. Building all the BR shunters from 01 to 10 has always been an ambition (still working on it but mostly done) so this is a logical extension.
When mytimemedia, publishers of MREmag.com were looking for idea for a railway themed paper publication, I suggested this and it was eagerly accepted.
Now I'm into hitherto uncharted territory of negotiating for reproduction rights on photos and trying to work out who made which kit of which loco. It's going to be fun but a challenge. At least I'm trying to make something I would certainly buy if it turned up in Smiths.
Of course, that doesn't guarantee sales. However, the deal that means a £9.99 book includes a £10 voucher for ModelFair might help a bit.
