Mostly we had lovely weather but one day was foul so out came my touring modelling box and I made the most of the time I had to start a Varikit bash... it ended up only using the footplate/bufferbeam casting with bits and bobs from that magnificent box of bits donating the rest. I've ended up with a sort of Hunslet/Manning Wardel 0-4-0 which I rather like. It sits on a Fleischmann 0-4-0 chassis which although second hand runs rather sweetly; even after my butchery with razor saw and files etc.
Still a few bits and bobs to finish it off, thank god for filler, but mostly there. Will be named 'Staithes' in honour of its birthplace.
