Getting ready for Missenden

For the last two years, I’ve been going to Missenden Abbey’s Model Railway weekend. Initially, it was a distraction when Richard was away in Kentucky, but the appeal now is the friendly crowd and the regular kick-start to my modelling.

For the last two years, I’ve been building locos. This year, I want to experience using an airbrush so I can finish some of what I have started!

I’ve just ordered some paints to take along next weekend, and now I need to rummage around the internet for pictures of the stock I plan to run on Popham Depot. That way I can work from images of what the wagons and locos look like after they’ve been in traffic for a while.

If you’ll be there too, see you in a week at Missenden!

    You’re in with Ian Rathbone then? Excellent! I nearly went for that session, so I’ll be interested to see what you do. Expect freqent visitation…

    I think I’m in with Tim for the painting and weathering – that’s what Chris recommended, given my ‘total beginner’ status. I don’t need to learn how to line-out locos for Tornado 😉
