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

All of a blur

So as I described in my previous post I dusted off the technocrat drawing set and got to work. And this was what for. 

My aim is to have my planes flying above my layout. And flying planes don’t have stationary propellers (not often anyway). 

However, in my youth I tried just chopping the propeller blades off and it looks naff. So this time I decided to be a bit more sophisticated with an off cut of the sort of plastic used in modern picture frames. 




Once cut out and tidied up I then drilled out the centre hole to 1.5mm to fit the centre pin in the kit. 


Next post I’ll hopefully show what it looks like finished.

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.
