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

Louvred up

You win some, you lose some in this game.

My first attempt at louvred doors for 59 van didn’t work. They were the panels from the Hornby class 50 but I couldn’t cut them down without dismantling them (yes they’re real) and my attempts to keep them in position while I did it didn’t work either.

Never mind. Mk2 was a knackered HST power car bodyshell on fleabag which was put through the bandsaw to retrieve the pieces. Not as realistic but somewhat easier to handle.

Next job to make the whole thing a little more 3D.

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.
