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

Assembly line

With some painting of interiors and exteriors done, assembly of the DH Rapide and DH Chipmunk had commenced. 

The pictures below show progress so far. 

DH Dragon Rapide:

DH chipmunk 

The colour of the chipmunk is Humbrol Chrome which does seem to show off the polished surface I’m after quite well. 

The Rapide is done in Humbrol Silver which is a slightly different shade though there’s not much in it. I’m quite liking the shiny planes – makes a difference from all the camouflage planes I used to build in my youth.

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 and Beamish. In addition to my heavily railway themed life, I am interested in rugby, cricket, reading crime novels, falconry, and medieval re-enactments.
