3 UP

Hi Guy's

With my family situation being as it is atm, I haven't had much of a chance to model. I have had a lot of time to think about things and my Layout is one. My wife Amanda has given me approval to build my train room. My secret Lab as my Boys call it ( Converted Garage ) will need to converted to a bedroom over the next 12 months, so I have been given approval to fill in 1/2 of our back deck. This will give me a room of about 6 x 4.4 metres in size which is good enough for me. Anyway I will update on the progress as time goes on.

Anyway the title of this blog is 3 UP. That is I have setup photo's each with 3 items in it. Now the main reason for this is for my own benefit. I like to photograph my rollingstock over time. I find it is a great tool for having a close look at my rollingstock as my eye sight isn't what it used to be. Having a photo up on the monitor is a great way of finding things that need attention on the models. Little details that I might not normally pick up on or someone else will when you have it up on display. Anyway here is the shots.















Just some notes on these last two


Here is a long term project. NPRY cement wagons. From what I can gather there is 3 main types of these wagons. I hope to model all 3. AR kits produce a model of the 1st type AFAIK which will be mostly just going to be a detailing job.. The 2nd type stands a bit taller than the others and the one here in the middle is my attempt at this stage. The 3rd type is similar to the 1st AFAIK but with a few different details. Anyway I will update when there is more progress.


Lastly is my PHS Powervan. This was built about 6 years ago and this would have to be my biggest kit bashing project ever attempted. From memory there is 6 cuts and joins on one side and 7 on the other to get most of the vents and doors etc in about the right spot. I still need to detail the ends so this maybe something to do between all the other responsibilities atm. Anyway I have the Candy one planned for a later date so hopefully I will document the process of making the other Air Conditioned PHS Power Van.

Cheers Justin Moy

Hannah

Hi Guy's

I would like to introduce Hannah Clare, Born last Friday 4/5.

Hannah was induced 20 days early due to problems that my wife Amanda was having with the Pregnancy. All went well and even though Hannah only weighed 2.82kg she was allowed to come home on Monday. Amanda made it through very well and my step sons Hayden and Callum love having a new baby sister. So with 2 princesses to look after I have been a little busy. I have been trying to finish off a couple of long term projects so hopefully I will have some stuff to present on my blog soon.

Cheers Justin Moy
