I don't know!  Tri-ang, Meccano, bits of wood, styrene,

will we ever see Wolfie supervising an actual kit build,

or will he be like his four legged namesake, forever scratching!

:shocked:  Some time this week,

Dave may drop off a letter from Canada.  L:


It may be something for Wolfy and you to work on.  :bang:

No TRI-ANG should be involved.  :)


However I am sure the two of you will find a way,  :bg: 

to bash yet another TRI-ANG piece of rolling stock.

" :shocked:  Some time this week,

Hi    Ken  :wave:  Eh !



Dave The Postman has been keeping a fairly low-profile for the last few days ...

... only a 'stealth' delivery of my VISA bill  :shocked:  & a couple of CDs  :cool:  so far this week.

A mysterious  ???  delivery from    Post    Eh !  :us:


I had expected to have received one of these by now this week ...  :brill:





... but mysteriously  L:  it is still in transit ...

... perhaps from the 1986 time-warp, from whence it came !  :time:



Maybe by the weekend, I might have TWO  :bg:  :bg:  NEW mysterious items, from Dave The Postman ? 




Perhaps there's a delay at the Canada Post    end, their snow-tires ^^ look good though !  :P


As for the mysterious 'Roland MC-500', it could be coming by DeLorean, direct from 1986 !  ;)

Oh well ... Patience is a virtue ... & Dave is a postman ... as they say on my street !  :old dude:


What on Earth could this surprise package from Canadian    Ken be Eh ?  ??? :us: L:

Would I spoil the surprise.  L: 


That would just have you harassing  :bg:  Dave as he is making his rounds.

That would be like an episode of "Keeping Up Appearances".  :)

HOLY COW BATMAN !  :old dude:





I just spent most of the last 2 days, going through all my modelling photos !  :boogie:


Each of my car builds, has its own folder, but pics. got stuffed in, here & there ...

... You know how it is !  :P


It was worth the totally tedious effort, of moving, filing, & deleting, as I saw fit ...

... I have used quick cellphone photos, to document ideas, for all my builds.  :)





Plus of course, collecting Proto-Photos, that are related to the look of my projects.  :cool:


This ^^ is my most recent 'gondola' ? build ...  :dt:

... running on re-wheeled 'Tri-ang' T.C. series diecast archbar trucks ...  :thumb:

... using various woodstock & a modded 1:35 scale, narrowed 'Ford G917T' truck back !



:moose:

Another snap unearthed from my photo tidy up, of my recent 'Gondola ?' Build/BASH !  :old dude:


Once cut to length, using Wolfys trusty HACKSAW  :shocked:  in the  M.M.M.M.M.& M.Co.  mini mitre-box ...

... I always give my timber pieces, a good going over, with a small brass-bristled hand-brush.  L:





With the 'Ford' truck back on top, only the plank ends remain showing ...  :P

... they are the slenderest cross section of my standard plank woodstock.


YEP ! ... You guessed it ! ... They are   COFFEE  :java::moose:  STIRRERS  !


Lighter in colour than  Canadian    Kens ones ... Which are a very 'Dark Rum' shade ! ...  ;)

... Unavailable on 'Floquil' or 'Humbrol' standard colour charts ! !  [toast]

Si

Being cheap I use India Ink and water for stain.  :)
 

Figured just in case you might be short of tank car projects.  :Crazy:

Added a photo of a beer tank car, "lounge car" for your freight train crews.  :)
