     Actually, I am using the free software that came with my Canon camera; 'Photo Studio 5.5'.  This software does not have the scope of 'Photo Shop'  (which is on my wish list). 

     All the photos that I have posted have been made on a simple Sony 'Cyber-shot 2.0',   This is a easy to use automatic exposure camera, with a digital zoom.  I never use the zoom feature as these pictures do not hold sharpness.  I have yet to figure out how to work well with my Canon and hope to start experimenting with it soon, with the expectation of better results.

     The Morgan was the factory works chassis and sported many different engines.  Seen on the car in the late teens and early twenties were Peugot, J.A.P., Blackburne, M.A.G., Precision, Blumfield, Britisih Vulpine and Anazini.

:wow That petrol tank looks like something a early James Bond would have had fitted to his car.

What other cars did you collect Larry ?

Back in the 70's and 80's the focus was primaryly on Bentley, Bugatti, Delahye, Morgan (trikes), MG, Austin; motorcyles...Vincent, Scott, Ariel, Rudge, Norton, AJS and Brough Superior. 


     I did have a couple of American cars, a 1914 Model T Ford and one of all time favorites was the 1911 Stoddard Dayton pictured here.  Large 4 cylinder car that could cruse with four passengers at up to 50 miles per hour. 

     Photo is from a recreation run of the Centennial Auto Race of 1878 held in Wisconsin.  It began in Green Bay and ended it's 201 mile run in Madison; the Capital of Wisconsin.

In 1979 it was privilege to meet and spend some time with Peter Morgan who was a most gracious gentlemen.  It is wonderful to see that a company can be in business without government bail-outs and interference.

     Right after my last post I was called away on a business mission and upon return three weeks ago broke my left foot getting out of my car.  All my time since then has been spent dealing with this,   and it appears that full recovery will take some time.
     Hoping to use some of this down time to work on the layout as soon as can get about.

Larry

Bad news about the foot hopefully you will be able to get mobile again shortly.

At least if you can get to your workbench you can do some modelling so perhaps time for a few kits and other bits for the layout.

Just your "everyday" run-about cars then Larry - nothing too interesting !!! :shock::shock::shock::shock::shock::shock::shock::shock::shock::wow:wow

My all time favourite, and the car of my dreams when my 6 numbers come up is the 1929 super-charged 4.5 litre "Birkin" Bentley.  A truly fantastic car in my mind.

I had the odd "interesting" car in my youth (Singer Roadster,  Talbot 10,  1949 Triumph Roadster and a Series 1 Land Rover to name a few of them).  I still have friends who own vintage cars - one, whom I shall visit next "home run" at the end of the month has a 1934 Lagonda Rapide and an early E-Type Jag.  Both terrific cars.

Sorry to hear about your foot Larry, I hope it heals with no problems. Like Brian says, nows the time to start building anything that can be done while sitting at a workbench! It will also help to keep your mind off.... what was that you broke? :pedal

Wayne, he, Larry, must have broken his foot getting out of the car too quickly to get back into modelling & this forum!!

Larry, I hope it was not too painful.

Thanks for the concern, never had any idea how hard it was to do simple tasks when you on crutches.  Did take the opportunity to open up my new Hornby M7 which replaces the Collect (sold to a fellow modeller).


This will be handling passenger service from Wells - Tilbee Hill station to Highbridge.



The old GWR that has been replaced.

Have tossed off my crutches and time to get back on the foot-plate and have at it again.  Still wearing a foot brace, but can finally walk and use both hands.

Have not had a lot of help as my wife has been ill, daughter just finishing her first illustrated book and my son has been world traveling with a rock band in UK and Europe (yesterday he was in Swindon, has no idea what the G.W.R. is all about).

Pictured is the Hornby out-of-the-box model, very well done, have not had a chance to really run it yet…it looks so good I could except less then perfect performance.

Hope to start putting in an hour a day this week, will see.

The model is the Hornby R 2581 > BR 4-6-0 Class N15, Engine number 30764 'Sir Gawain.'  Thie is the ready-to-run model out of the box, the weathered edition.  I could never build a model with this level of detail.

I have exactly the same model myself Larry

A rake of the older style Maunsell coaches matches perfectly with that.
