As I have a few West Western locos coming up thought I'd make an appropriate area for them. After being away from the bench for nearly 4 months. I seem to have some mojo back. But to to make sure it stays I started a straight forward kit. It's a Javelin Dean's goods. Not sure of number as yet, it as the kit builds the later surviving locos, it my well wel up in BR black. Well so far the loco frames are on wheels and details are being added. Once I decide on crankpins I'll get it running. Following this there will be a 517 class, a DJB kit, well 90% of one anyway. Only a few castings missing. I've built one before, and this will be a closed cab later one. There's a RR/GWR R class, which is a rebuild, it is now in parts and apart from the radial trailing wheel and axle boxes that I knew were missing. I will need to make new tank tops, and smokebox wrapper. So nothing to strenuous. This is how it can. There is also a Saint class. Which I feel is a long term project, as it's a miss mash of parts. Etches from one source, castings from Scorpio, and tender from Slaters. Which is better travelled than me. I bought it from someone in Australia and it now resides in Brazil.
