A couple of bits

Hi Guy's

Just looking and it has been over 6 months since my last post on my Blog. I have had allot going on at the moment. When ever things are looking up, there has been something to bring me down. Earlier in the year I had myself a good case of the shingles. I wouldn't wish that on any body. Then more recently I had Whooping Cough. That was a bugger of a thing too. I have also had some issues with my eyesight which has affected me the most. Eyesight for me now is not a sure thing and this has basically put me in a deep depression which has been the hardiest  thing for me to deal with. With plenty of Family issues such as my Father in Law having a Stoke and now working full time, Modelling has just not been happening for me atm. This is much to the frustration of a few people that I have projects to finish off for, but I guess I am the most frustrated of all.

Anyway enough of that!

Modelling?

I had a pack of Auscision NLDF news print Vans show up today. They are real nice. I can't wait to weather them up. Just took some quick photos to show the detail up close. Auscision have been making leaps with their latest rolling stock. One new feature in their latest rollingstock is all metal shunters steps and brake wheels. Plastic parts such as these always broke off on previous models and this new detail is very welcome by this modeller.
Straight out of the box

Next to one of my ILM's NLDF's







 
Photo's tell the story, another fine model from Auscision. Also a little while ago Auscision released their WBAX Project. I will talk more about these at a later date as I tackle the weathering. These are a real challenge to weather realistically. 
 

 
 
A few other projects have progressed a little, one is my NOBX project. I have been working on 4x AR Kits NOBX's, working on detailing them to a standard that will match todays RTR. It is a challenge that I have been documenting for my Blog. This will be coming some.
and this is a taste of what is to come
 
Lastly is some Milk Containers produced by a new cottage producer called Road and Rail Resin. These are not complete but will look real nice when done.

These are my NQSF and NQIX that will be put into milk traffic. Just got to weather and decal them and they will look real nice
 
Cheers for now
