2021 shows cancelled due to covid19

Seems some of 2021s shows are not going ahead due to covid.

St Albans show is kinda understandable being in January but also Derby in 2021. The latter seems to be led by the venue rather than the club.

Re: 1980's cars and other road vehicles

Everything has varnish to make it look wet but I’m wondering if I need some darkening as well. My pot of Tamiya smoke is Looking worried. Need to do some more experimenting I think.

Re: BR Fruit Vans

Hi Iain

These kits have the wrong profile ends. The roof is more like a br standard van and not like an LMS van. A common trick is to use the ends from the ratio van in their place.

Those little Mainline iron ore hoppers.

Anyone modelling in 4mm scale for any length of time has probably come across the Airfix/Mainline/possibly Dapol/ Bachmann 21, 22 or 24 ton Iron ore hoppers. Based on a Charles Roberts version with the standard, at the time, stretched to fit compromises to fit a generic 10ft wagon chassis. They do h...
