So basically Wordpress fails, and has suddenly decided to no longer co-operate with my browser despite all I've tried. So, I've decided to move my blog here; thankfully, there's not a huge archive of posts there, nor a great deal of information in what few posts I did make there, that won't be at least touched upon in future posts here. But, what is already there will stay put there, so you can always check it out if you wish at http://espeett.wordpress.com
That said, I know it's been a very long time since I made my last post there, in large part because spring and summer usually draw my attention away from modelling stuff into other realms. As we head back into the time of year where the weather is either "rain", "downpour" or "deluge", I'll be getting back a bit more into the modelling end of things, too. And, too, the leadup to the November train show usually lights a bit of a fire under my posterior, too!
So, I have no real updates at the moment, but for those of you who might not yet have seen it, here's a photo of my SW8 kitbash as it stands right now:
As you can see, the bulk of the work is done. The matte coat I gave it killed the nice weathering I did on the body using cheap eyeshadow, so I'm going to redo that, then add the railings, bell, couplers, etc., and then call this, my first TT scale SP locomotive, finished.
I have a number of rolling stock and structure projects that I'd like to finish over the course of the winter, and I'm hoping to make some good progress on the Petrolia modules, so that I can take them to the March show. But more on those later.
