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

My current plane obsession continues and unlike when I was a teenager and was adept at glueing the thing together but could never be arsed to paint them properly, this time I have decided to paint and then assemble as much as possible so I can get decent interiors. I am also batch building (sort of) as I am making a DH Dragon Rapide as well as the Chippie. 

The Chippie comes with 2 pilots while the Rapide has none so I borrowed one from the Chippie for the Rapide. 

Rapide pilot is in a green suit uniform with tie and a suggestion of eppaulettes on the shoulders. 

Chippie pilot is dressed as per a test pilot should be with suit and red cravat. 

Both then had a wash with Rust walk weather which brought out the highlights so much better. 

Given how much I dislike this sort of job, I’m pleased with how they turned out and also how much I enjoyed it!! 

(They are stuck on the end of a matchstick with an off cut of a 3M hook sticker btw). 

Next time, some assembly.

Now rapidly approaching my fifth decade, 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 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.
