    That looks really good.

    Those dapol kits i cannot quite fathom. Some remind me of the items airfix offered when i was young (so many years ago). Did airfix sell the moulds to dapol or was it the other way around?

    Not had a hobbies catalogue for a few years (thanks wh smith for not stocking them) but i know they used to list a whole load of dapol items.

    Thanks for that. They have stood up to the years very well.

    That's a nice build Peter - although it does look odd seeing a train without tracks.
