  14. This gives a whole new meaning to 'stealth purchase'.

    Buy 1 coach, slip in another, then help the missus spend her bingo winnings with the power car :devil::devil::devil::devil:

    We'll be coming round for lessons, Mike :mask::mask::mask:

  20. Thank you Korm..
    My all time favourite loco is/was A hornby class 29/21.. I know ...crap model.out of wack ect
    Looking at the lgb e10 loco it has spoked wheel sets..same as a class 22.. which is a very similar loco to the 21/29...OK..still here? Well ..after blagging a set of the latest E10 motor blocks (the uprated version.i.e they work).and after buying a book with nice pictures in it that I don't have to colour in...I thought I might hav3 a go...
    So 1st job..work out how to use lgb rubber scale ruler.. the book drawing is in 4mm scale 00...and I'm in g scale
    Compromise compromise....
    The motor blocks are to long.
    It's not a narrow gauge loco
    It has to fit into lgbs and g scales loading gauge...and finally look something like it..
    So to start with.. a drawing... 20170219_151108.20170222_125627.20170222_133352.
