Hi, I am a newcomer and thought I would introduce myself.
I am married (with an understanding wife!), retired and live in Derbyshire. My railway interests are LNER/BR(E) and my modelling is mainly O gauge/7mm loco kit building.

My approach to the hobby can be best described as chaotic. As an example, in the next few days - light permitting - I will post a photo of my latest project which is a Medley Models LNER J77 0-6-0T. It has been under construction for about five years and still awaits final weathering before it is finished. The problem is a lack of discipline to finish one project before I start a new one to the extent that I am currently part way through another 6 loco builds.

To compound the problem, a few years ago I gave in to the temptations of the current excellent RTR 4mm ranges from Hornby and Bachmann - such as the O4, J11 etc - and allowed myself to be further distracted. As a result I will be using that well known on-line auction site over the next few weeks to sell the 4mm locos and concentrate my efforts again on clearing the 7mm loco building backlog.

I look forward to participating in your forum.

Regards

Terry

Welcome Terry!
I can sympathise with the too many projects thing, I think we all suffer this at some point.
At least if you have several projects on the go, presumably at different stages, you can work on whichever parts you feel like on any given day?
Looking forward to seeing some pictures and descriptions of your projects, please.

Hi Terry and welcome to the forum.

A chaotic modelling life is at least always a busy one, so don't worry, as we all go about it in different ways. I am familiar with the prospect of too many active, or possibly inactive projects on the go.

I have a habit of buying kits. So many now, that if I did nothing but build kits, I'd be well occupied for several years!

So bon courage with the J77 and of course, all the others. You are in good company.

Bill

Hi terry, I'm a builder, rather than buyer, but I have a lot of builds on the go, for me and others. Variety is the spice of life. I have for summer 7 different model boats including classic British speedboats and a 4 footmodel of the Victorian yacht I used to live on, then I'm just finishing a 1.6th scale model of a Vincent Black Shadow all in brass, Lantern Yard, my scenic 7mm set-piece, Southwold, another 7mm setpiece, a 1915 Triumph Model H motorcycle, master for a new kit from N-Drive and a Kitson 0-6-0 in 2mm for N-drive plus various scenic items for them like a 4mm scale Thames sailing barge. Oh and I also do 1/32nd scale slot car body master patterns for at least 3 friends!
So if you ever feel guilty, don't...variety really IS the spice of life. Sometimes I even watch telly!

Cheers,
Martin

Welcome Terry.  I switch between track laying, scenery, scratchbuiling and kit making, meaning my workspace is constantly needing a good tidy up.  I tell myself it isn't chaotic, it's interesting!

Look forward to seeing your models.

Regards

Michael

Welcome from a fellow BR(E) Region modeller living in London!!

Always interested in good used locomotives so do let us know when you propose to put your 4mm stuff up for sale.  Better still, post a few pics on the forum and you might find a buyer or two without the fees involved with eBay.

Barry
