Well, I was lucky enough to get a few modelling bits for my birthday.

The best present by far though, was Clares fantastic cake !
The high sugar content, kept me up assembling microscopic model parts, till the wee hours.

Non edible or liquid presents included :-
A pair of 1970s 'Britains' 1:32 scale Flamingos; for my Miami South-Beach hotel diorama (nice).
A 1:35 'Italeri' Field-Tools kit; for Wolfgangs critter repair workshop.
A 1:35 'Italeri' Brick-Walls kit; for Wolfgangs walls !

&
A MOOSE ! :moose:

Thanks also to Pat & Helen, for their long-distance message from the Caribbean...
...& Julians, from a trailer-park near Cambridge.

- - - - - - -



This seems like a great little kit, for anyone who wants a ton of 1:35 detail parts...
...for very little Robert DeNiro $$$

Si. :bg:

Wolfgang is delighted with his new tools. :)
He thinks slicing up corrugated styrene with the oxy. cutter is gonna be a breeze ! :shocked:



Wolfgang is sick to death of repairing his Ford V8 on the ground.
So he was pretty keen to assemble the flat-pack work-bench right away !
Unfortunatly the allen-key was missing !!
He voided his warrenty & used MEK in the end.

Si. :P

I seem to have spent a huge amount of my spare time just lately, on research.
Especialy finding materials & kits suitable for 1:35 railroading...
...which has almost zero commercial support.

Have been looking today at parts & kits from 'other scales' which might work in 1:35.
The UK manufacturers 'Wills' & 'Ratio' for example, have quite a few interesting items...
...which are ideal for 'up-scaling' from OO/HO to 1:35.

I thought I would start at the beginning in the Mysterious Moose Mountain thread with this research.
I hope that this information might be of use to anyone else railroading in 1:35, either now, or in the future.

- - - - - - -



Have also spent quite a while getting the foundations for the enginehouse right.
The Tamiya walls shown earlier are being doubled-up, for the main foundation.
This new kit is going to be used for an 'under construction' critter-workshop extension to the main enginehouse (pix. to follow).

The Italeri kit is very nice indeed.
Spent all last night 'de-spruing', cleaning-up & experimenting with the parts.
It's NOT compatible with Tamiya bricks by the way.
Very useful for 1:35 railroaders I think.

Oh ... & a MOOSE !

Some things have uses...
...others are just 'mooseless' !

Cheers.

Si.

Here's the 2 sprues in detail.
 

A lot of individual bricks.
6 each, of the smaller-sections.
& a large number of the main brick sections.

They are moulded great, & fit together very well, with minimal clean up.

:mex: " Perfect for Wolfgangs critter repair shop."

After the usual amount of urmin' & arhin' (quite a bit)...
...pretty much got the enginehouse 'footprint' nailed !

I do have a kinda overall plan for where it'll sit & how much space I've got...
...it'll do; & it now fits with the new Italeri brick extension as well.

So started glueing up the Tamiya brick sections by running MEK into the joins.



' a quick perfect fit '
(ha ha ha !)
I just noticed it says on my scrap paper...
...Mmmm.

:f:

Mmmm...
...this morning, one of the diagonal brick joins had somehow slipped out of true !

AAARRRGGGHHH !!!

Next attempt; even more care taken & HEAVY WEIGHTS !

Lucky I have a few spare brick sections.

I now have a 'Friday afternoon' one as well...
...to practice my Winchester & close-grouped Peacemaker holes on !

Si.
