Chronicling the development of my Cambrian and Narrow Gauge 4mm scale model railway

Top tips I have picked up in modelling. 

1. Make sure your scalpel is super sharp (more on that another time)

2. The longer the cut, the more opportunity for a slip and a stuff up. 

In relation to point 2, I have taken to using this guillotine made by Fiskars which makes cutting long items and repeat items so much easier. 

It’s had a lot of use tonight cutting up pieces for strengthening the card sides of the battery loco.

Having now officially reached middle age, I am a rolling stock engineer and have worked in many different locations including a 7 year spell in Sydney, Australia, where I arrived with a suitcase and left with a wife and a son. I am now based back in my home county of Yorkshire where I juggle full time work, being a Dad to two rascally mini-mes, and trying to fit in railway modelling, assisting the GWR 1014 County of Glamorgan project, and visits to the top left hand corner of Wales. In addition to my heavily railway themed life, I am interested in rugby, cricket, reading crime novels, falconry, and medieval re-enactments.
