Prompted in part by the anniversary appeal about old models, and partly by a tidy up of my storage during a forced break in painting a new model (perished airbrush hose), I thought I'd assemble a group of my early items.

In the front row is what is left of my initial trials in P4 and in the back row are the last of my OO models in the process of conversion - those on the track just need painting whilst those on the ground need new wheels and the bits to support them.

The back row are all scratch built items from 1964 to 1969.

The front row are from 1975 & 1976:
Wills kit, now on its second chassis. It has a Romford Bulldog motor and new DCC chip and has never been a good runner!
4 Ian Kirk kits with Studiolith rocking irons and wheels,
Slater's kit similarly fitted,
Ratio kit with inside bearings - I think the guard has screwed his brake down quite a bit, but with a lump of white metal at the front of the train it still goes along OK!
Regards,

Andrew Nummelin
