I'm quite pleased with this model of an 07 diesel shunter. Built for Modelling British Railways Diesel Locomotives, it's based on a Silver Fox resin kit and runs on a second-hand Bachmann 03 chassis. Basically, it's a model anyone could build - and if you buy the bookazine (on sale 6th October) then you can find out more.
So pleased was I, that I took it along to Hartlepool show to wave under a couple of peoples noses. That was my mistake, pride coming before a fall so to speak.
The fall was made by the loco as I was setting up my stand. The fall was about 18 inches. The fall ended with a hard, tiled floor.
The results were not pretty.
I stuck the loco back in its box and couldn't look at it for the rest of the day.
Tomorrow, I'll explain how I made things better.
