After a rather too long a hiatus in modelling terms due to life getting in the way I have managed to get back to the workspace. Yesterday I attended the NEAG meet that was primarily for getting people building and most of us built a 2mmFS Mineral Wagon kit and had the challenge to complete it by the end of the day. I didn’t get off to a good start by forgetting my soldering iron (I have at least 5 with the temp controlled one I was going to take got out ready the night before, and a craft knife) Thankfully one was provided for me and I cadged off my fellow AG member for the knife. It also realised/remembered that there are all sorts of little jigs and things like Blutac and hair clips. I have also been thinking about toolbox build and adapting it to my needs. I therefore haven’t moved ahead with this yet but I have make contact with local timber merchants who will supply and cut good quality Birch Ply along with carcassing timber for another project.
Unfortunately I didn’t manage to get that far but I certainly managed to get a good way on with it. The boost it provided has got be back to getting on with my modelling and certainly will keep momentum going as I got another kit to bring home with me to start as soon as I have finished the first one. In fact I have a rake of about 15-20 to build of these so once I have completed one to my satisfaction I will start batch processing.
This leads me on to what to run these on. Well I am going to try to build a foam board micro, a kind of inglenook keeping it simple!! but building some things that can be transferred to the ‘big’ layout. But less talking more doing! 🙂
