    Thanks for the kind comments, much appreciated!

    Pinch away Kimbo, just maybe choose a better bogie for the load. The Lima one I used is very chunky.

    Hi all,

    A recent wagon off the workbench is this Parkside Dundas Grampus. Its the old, original kit. I rebuilt the end planks because the originals were deformed.

    I added some whitemetal buffers and a few bits and bobs from plastic sheet.

    I've painted and weathered it to represent a rusty example, based on some photos on the Bartlett site.

    I'm not really happy with the markings - from Modelmaster - but it's all I had available.

    Thanks for the comments, likes and POTW - especially since its been so long since I've posted or done any real modelling! It was a really nice surprise!

    What little modelling I did in the second half of 2020 was limited to 1/48 scale aircraft building, but I hope to focus more on railway modelling this year if I can!
