    Very nice, Barry.
    Always good to see your builds. Plenty of little extras to keep the eye busy too...
    Top work.

    Lots of detail which I like. Very convincing. The weight and strength of all that steel is well modelled.

    If everything apart from the figures are scratch built I'm really impressed!
    That railway chassis looks really convincing!
    Must've taken a few hours though...

    Thanks guys.
    Jens only parts not scratch were axle boxes and wheels and build time was six weeks full time (retired).
