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

Technocrat

So assembly is underway. The Chippy wings are now in one piece and the fuselage too. 

Back in the late 80s / early 90s as I was getting into technical drawing (for fun!) I saved up my birthday money one year and bought a technocrat drawing set. 

Now here we are 25 or so years later and it sits on my modelling desk ready to assist as required. My latest project required just such old fashioned tools so I dug it out and muttering something about not being allowed to do CAD until my second year at uni, I set to. Next post will show what I set to to do.

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.
