New old member here been browsing the form for years and years but never joined
I have been model engineering for over 30 years helping my dad and grandad since I can remember with their locos and track have laid over 300ft of track at my dads for us to play
Currently on my second project
My first was recondition of a 4167 class 08 battery adding masses of detail hundreds of rivets bolts custom printed parts brass solder parts, sound smoke light and rc controls and a green and proper wasp end paint job
I finally purchased an old Pansy project and am finally cracking on with my 77xx pannier tank based on a mix of LBSC and doug designs/drawings and I’m sure a whole host of custom bits along the way to just to make it look right or function better.
Welcome James. you seem well into it already. Might I suggest that the best thing you could do would be to join a club. In Essex there are several clubs which are active, and where you would find help, encouragement, and advice. What part of Essex do you live in? Regards Brian B
