Well I have promised photos for a while. I have been distracted by the Black Hawthorn so I thought I would put up a few photos for amusement!
And to change back to the Big'un
I guess when you look at the Q6 there is a fair bit of work left to do and the BH hasn't got that much in the way of cosmetics to be finished! It is interesting to compare the 2 kits both from designers of excellence. The high level being more of a total package with the bespoke gearbox. I am finding that the accuracy of Dave Bradwells drafting to be much higher than the BH. I found that the BH's bunkers inside the cab sheets to be slightly short, and also the etched slots needing alot of cleaning out to get to work OR just not to bother and file off the tabs. Over all both are great in their own ways. They might cure my appitite for Loco's for a while. I am thinkiing about NER coaches for the passenger services and the idea that I havn't built any coaches out of brass yet!
I also had to go to Brunel Models to purchase some more solder 145degree and 70 degree, type 1 flux which is very similar to red lable and some other sundires. It was nice to catch up with Mary and then John who are both S4 members. I can recommend their 145degree solder it worked beautifully on the springs of the BH, rather than the 70 degree!
Crazy thought has any one heard of what Mr Bradwell is working on at the moment????
