I located these old Britains figures who will take their place in the Rusland Army. I got them in some eBay purchase ages ago and they have now found their niche. A repair to one of their rifles and some paint and they will serve . The plastic figure has been pva prepared and started to be painted. He will serve as a scout and guide.
The courier brought the first of my garden railway purchases yesterday. Here they are having been unpacked. More about them over the coming week.
Today I hope to fight the Bit of Bother in Tradgardistan game so be ready for a battle report later, probably tomorrow.
Nice figures and the Railcar looks superbReplyDelete
Hopefully it won’t be too fiddly. Battery powered so I can’t blow it and myself up!Delete
I've never seen anything quite like that Railcar - who is the manufacturer?Delete
Fantastic looking stuff - looking forward to see how you get on!Delete
Hi Alan- Congratulations on your Garden Rail purchases- the little Rail Bus looks excellent as does the little man in resin. Well done! I'll be following your progress on your Garden Railway. Cheers. KEV.ReplyDelete
I think it will take a wee bit of time to make this but I am looking forward to the challenge.Delete
Looking forward to seeing more of your garden railway .ReplyDelete
More coming soon I hope.Delete
I was looking at you in your garden on FB this AM and it looked quite lush by comparison with my bit of Canuckistan which got hit with a lashing of winter this weekend.
I am fascinated by your garden railway project. Joy's grandkids and I were watching a video where someone mounted a GoPro type camera on a LEGO train that went in and out of a house - Australia, by the looks of it. Quite impressive and 3 year old Ollie was keen to try it. I shall be watching your project and taking notes.
We have had a lot of sun which has really brought things on in the garden, most noticeably the Beech hedge. It has been a great chance for getting things planted and the wilderness tamed. I subscribe to an American garden railway magazine and I am often amazed by the impressive layouts indoor, outdoors and a combination of the two. Mine will be more modest but hopefully fun. Ollie could set you off in a new direction... perhaps the pulp project could inform a train track?Delete
