This month's BRM has a bit of a technology feel. There's 3D scanning and printing and loads of other wow stuff including some incredible model building.
Anyway, my contribution this time is a comparison of a couple of O16.5 kits - one etched and one laser cut in Rowmark. Both models are pre-production kits from Mercian Models and they should be available for sale at the NG event in Derby in the middle of the year. I've made a few comments but nothing major. The biggest problem will be giving them back. I really like the little van.
In the latest Hornby Collectors Club magazine, we have part 2of my basic wagon loads piece looking at non-coal based ideas to fill your wagon. Pipes were inspired by a 1970s Blue Peter annual, but I've been a bit more sophisticated than their efforts with pasta!
