Thankyou for your kind words evryone. I think the main thing is to give things a go and take your time. i have heard time and time again that something i do is very clever but actually its very simple, the difference is that i do it and they dont!
QUOTE (dbclass50)Superb work Peter - you have far more patience & skill than I'll ever have. I would like to see some examples of your work in the flesh. We may just make it to Chatham this weekend (working late Sat night !) on the Sunday. I'll send yo a PM with my mobile no .
Sure. i will be taking a few of them with me so if you can back me into a corner then i would be delighted to show you.
QUOTE (ebaykal)Peter, brilliant work
Believe these are sold as OO kits . Any chance of HO ?
Not really, sorry! i do have a few plans for HO kits. I have recently just about finished a couple of designs for a polish coach which i will be test building and i have a few things on the to-do list which will be HO. (a couple of european loco's. some russian coaches, russian p36, middle east class, Iraqi streamliner ect...)
QUOTE (neil_s_wood)I wouldn't mind seeing some of your work too. I'm a bit further away though and won't be making it to Chatham.
Have you ever thought of starting your own model company Peter? You obviously have the skills to train others to make a decent product and there is gaping hole in the UK market for top end product.
It is my long term intention to do just that. I am not sure about selling RTR high end but i would like to sell kits. I actually have a full time job with the BBC that gives me lots of time to spend on my hobbies. it would be a huge step to give up on the propper job and go it alone.
I do have a couple of designs on the drawing board that will be under my own name. i have some LNWR stock and some LMS period 1 stock that i am basically doing for myself but there is no reason why i couldnt sell them under my own name. also i keep looking at my garrett and thinking how easy it would be to etch. its just that its a big daunting job.
QUOTE (Ozzie21)Peter, Lovely work. That Mk1BG is it a Comet kit? I've been thinking of giving the Comet kits a go after aI run out of DJH locos to build.
Hello ozzie. yes the BG is a comet kit. the body and chassis fell together but I dont think much of the bogie sideframes.
Once again thankyou for your kind words. evry time i get that it spurs me on to do more.
