I just thought these pics were worth sharing- Built by my friend Colin, whose scratch built 009 gauge locos I've posted elsewhere on the forum.
He has made this engine from plasticard and bits of copper and brass, and I managed to geta couple of quick photos before the camera battery went flat on me.

First pic is shown alongside a RTR model, possible a Langley? The picture is not that remarkable, until you compare it with the next one, where a ballpoint pen has been put next to it.




Now with the pen to show the relative scale:




And finally one with the roof removed:




I just wish I could make things this well!

Some people are amazingly gifted, there is no way I could ever do something as good as those engines in that scale :pathead Pete.

'Wow' doesn't do it justice! A kit to that standard would be quite impressive, scratching it is outstanding.

That's not modelling, that's watchmaking. Fantastic.
