I work in pretty much any scale. Lately I have been engaged in big models.
The silver/blue Scania was my first ever attempt at this scale and it needs some repair. The flatbed trailer isn’t finished, it’s still in grey primer. Nightwing is a one-off made from a Daf cab unit and it and the Opel fire truck have both been converted to right hand drive. I might sell those.
Really though, my interest is in the tiny stuff. I didn’t think I could do it any more. I thought my eyes had gone. Recently though, I started on a 6m cm long N gauge bus and it’s coming along nicely. It’s in the background of the sparkly truck you’ll hear more of later.
But I went further. I went back to when I was painting eyes on Dungeons and Dragons figurines and putting ear wax in 1/35th scale soldiers. I have an Austin van made of whitemetal for N gauge. It is just under 2 cm long. It currently looks like this – I can’t get a good photo but W. M. Blood and Family Butcher are legible . Next I will glaze the windows. I have a trick that will do it. And yes, I did paint the door handles.
This model isn’t finished (are they ever?) but will go on eBay soon. I don’t intend to keep it, I have others to make.
I have new tiny model tricks to share that have come from our resident nail art genius. I’m in a new world of tiny models again.
Yet I must still sell off the N gauge trains. Getting those buggers back on the tracks drives me nuts.
