Terrier update (well almost)

Just to let you know the Terrier is still work in progress. As usual a combination of work and life in general have got in the way.

However all is not lost on the modelling front as the arrival of the Kingsbury meet is always a spur to get something done.

So I have been putting together an already started Finney & Smith 10t Large cattle wagon. Transfers added although not all were available. If you look carefully you might just see Farmer Eastons prize bull being transported to market!

More on Kingsbury after the weekend.

Kingsbury Update 2

I mentioned yesterday that I would post further photos on my blog of the competition at yesterdays 3mm Kingsbury meet.

I can now reveal that the brake van was completed for the Woking Group entry to the Kingsbury competition. We entered the LCGB brake van special and came third. Terry Tracy provided the loco

(Sorry for the lop sided photo – access was a bit restricted) Various brakevans were provided by the group members

As you can see my brake is tacked on the end – preserved is my excuse!

The modelling standard for the other entries was very high. I was impressed with the Terrier as that is what I am building at present (granted K&ESR Bodiam).

Here are a couple of more shots of the entries, with a photo of the Kingsbury trophy it’s self to round off.Image

Kingsbury purchases

Very fruitful bit of retail therapy at the 3mm Kingsbury meet.

Picked up 2 Ian Kirk LNER suburban coaches today from the collection of the Late Peter Gentle, something that has been on my wishlist for awhile. Paid a good price for them, but worth it.

As for the competition the Woking Group came third, with South Downs & Solent coming second and the Gloucester group first. Congrats to all these that entered will post the photos of the entries when I download the pics from the camera.
