I just realsied that its less than 10 weeks until christmas and thats scary. This year has gone so fast and with all the new models coming out lately and more soon to arrive, the old wallet has copped a battering.
The train shed I started 18 months ago has come to a grinding halt and each time I begin to to something regarding the shed something else pops up like a couple of A's from auscsion or a couple of T's from powerline. Not to mention the horrible evilbay. I have managed to put a couple of things together and are awaiting the warmer weather for the paint shop to start up again.
I did finish one item that came up rather well and I would encourage any SAR or VR modeller to have a go at for their layout. The San Mateo Line search light signal which appeared all over the VR and SAR systems are a fiddley kit but well worth the time and effort ( even my son was suprised how dads fat fingers managed to put it together ).
