Not much to say really, does it sort have a teensy weensy bit of a Spanish look about it ? If you are of a nervous disposition please look away now.



Did somebody mention sombrero ? - love the shoes too

Like it! Any chance of an outside pic of it? Looks like yer man has a bit of backpain similar to mine... good paint job on him, though.

Slightly off topic, how much money do you think you've saved since stopping smoking last year? Just interested to think of it in terms of a loco or some other thing that you could get instead!

Looking closely there is some interesting brass construction.

How did you do the roof and the portholes on the back panel please?

Carl, its only .6mm sheet (I think) as it's all I have got. The "curve" of the roof is based loosely on my thighs because I was too lazy to find a rolling pin. Thicker brass would probbly be a bit painful. The portholes are actually cut using one of those flat blade wood boring bits, they come in lots of sizes. Using a slow speed in a battery drill and drill from both sides I found it worked a treat, if you "wobble" the bit you end up with a nice disc too.

Smoking calcs : My spreadsheet (how sad) shows 222 days and minimum savings of 860 or 1526 at GB prices. It also shows that in addition to my Piko Taurus and Piko Railbus I would have 492 left over which coincidentally is what that Regner sold for yesterday.
