As it turns out, loads of stuff.
In both print and on the DVD, I've wrestled the Magnorail HO scale working cyclist kit from the office and built a small diorama using last month's Petite Properties cottage.
It's a bit of a fiddle, but the resulting model looks amazing with the mini man cycling around apparently by magic. Except it isn't, and I'll show you how it works...
Andy York has written a piece on goods handling and in there we find a photo of a shunting tractor. Somehow I volunteered to build a model of one and the results are in this issue.
I built two models, the one above based on a Fordson and an older version using a Ferguson. The yellow model took longer but the older beast that I slapped together on a couple of hour looks better to me, but then I always did like slightly ramshackle things!
Staying with yellow models, how about a railcrane?
This is a resin kit from new (to me) manufacturer Make your Mark Models. Although not designed as a working model, I couldn't resist powering it.
What's interesting is that amongst all the moans that the hobby, and especially the cottage industry manufacturers, are dieing, here were have a new entrant who has produced the best resin kit I think I've ever built.
I've used an older kit in "Second Hand Saviours" this month, a Kitmaster 08 shunter.
Inspired by a thread on RMweb (yes, it can happen) I've turned a battered pre-built plastic model that was otherwise only fit for the bin, into an interesting scenic feature.
Over in the reviews section, I've built a 1970s house from Peedie Models. While doing this in 4mm scale, I tried some of their N gauge range as well. The prefab cottages are especially nice.
And just in case you think I've been taking it easy, there's also reviews of a Wild Boar Models PFA kit, Molten Metal Paint, Severn Models etched hut and Modelrailwayscenery roadside cafe kit.
Plus some basic metalworking advice on the DVD. Phew!
