Hi Brendan,

Take the lack of comments as approval. I for one am amazed at your talent for improvisation, adaptation and making believable models from cans of soda and odds and ends lying around. For frugal minds like mine it just shows what can be done.

Nigel

I guess I never thought of it like that.. and thank you.


Got this pretty much finished, finally. Final paint color applied, finished painting the roof, got the printed decals glued on.


Getting close to done with the fish van. The buffers are on, the chassis has been painted and weathered, the body is mounted, the home made Sprat & Winkle-style couplers are installed and functional (except one is currently without the wire loop because I ran out of Krazy Glue)

Coming back from a period of getting sidetracked, and have stuff to show for it.

First off, the fiah van now has a roof and both couplings, so it's done aside from graphics and weathering of the sides and roof


And the test build of my 48' container template

Bit of a progress update:

The fish van's been weathered a bit on the sides and roof, looks a bit better now.
Finally almost done with converting a standard flat to a trailer flat.
And I've made some headway on one of the sides for my generator-baggage-dorm, with my first effort at homemade fluting for the sides
By the way, can anyone guess what's with the stubs of wire coming out of the container in my previous post?
