First up, the 2 hour challenge - Building a diesel fuelling point. Using a Knightwing plastic kit, lashings of static grass and a strong cup of tea, my diesel locos now have somewhere to pose while being refueled.
Note: I should mention that the excellent Modelling British Railways Diesel Locomotives is still available. Get yourself a copy today! And if you've got a copy, get another so you can keep it pristine!
Inspired by a corner of the "Diesels in the Dutchy" layout, I've made a diorama based on a static caravan. While you shouldn't really model a model, sometimes you see (or at least I do) a scene and think, "I'd like something like that on my layout." Well, here you go. A quick and simple space-filler.
And finally (drum roll), there's a special model buildings supplement where I build 2 cardboard structures, a plastic kit, defile a Bachmann Pendon building, get out in the garden with a laser-cut greenhouse and scratchbuild some cottages. There is an awful lot of this so dig in and enjoy. I think I need a lie down...
You even get some Christmas present suggestions if anyone is thinking of writing to Santa for me!
