A fresh "twist" on Christmas lunch!  Perhaps more appropriate for Halloween..?!

With all the arms and legs being chopped up -could this be the plot synopsis for the latest Hammer Horror film " Train of Frankenstein"???

Mmm....I was wondering what to do with all the spare body parts!

Mike,

That would be a good option but I need to get this off my bench ASAP .... it is taking up the space needed for two Coal Tanks!

After 6 hours of manipulation (more amputations....half the legs below knees now gone) which included removing/refitting all the cab fittings, modifying the seats  and relocating the R/C Rx unit plus wiring, I  think I now have a reasonable result with the driver's right hand on the gear-change lever.

Next task is the black/gold lining, then fit the glazing and passenger seats.

John.

You could try Modelu John.  They don't do Gauge 3 yet, but will do so very soon.

Thanks Ian.
I have replied to you with my analysis.
BT appears to have placed a block on the sender's IP, so anybody with a BT account should be safe.
John.

P.S. From the data which Ian sent me, I suspect a member of G3S or this forum may have an "infected" computer/tablet or whatever and that a "trojan" has accessed their address book. I recommend that all members immediately run an anti-virus/anti-spyware scan of their own systems.

Bachmann G-scale giants!

The drivers for the railcar arrived and are huge (box is clearly marked as G-scale)!
So far, I have been unable to get them into the cabs, even though I have amputated their feet at the ankles.
Fortunately, I  have not yet glazed the cabs, so have the option of pushing through the windows, assuming I can can trim or bend them to fit.














They are both too broad and too tall : Photos show them in passenger seats...... taking up almost a whole double seat width and half of a "three aside" seat. Their height places the tops of their heads almost at cantrail level (and that's when seated").

John.
