Tinkering

The older you get the more you realise that it takes way longer to fix issues when you have an accident or two.  Recently I tore the tendons in my shoulder and strained the others on the opposite side.  Needless to say, it’s a slow recovery but I believe I should get full movement without pain within the next 2 years.

Just to show that I have still managed some things I have been tinkering with a mech which is spot on for H220.  Trial 3D models below.

Also at the same time, I did an S class unstreamlined with original tender, streamlined tender and a C class.

Forging ahead slowly




I have several new products finally coming together. I have spent some time trying to finish things off around work and normal family life in these COVID times.

Long wheelbase T vans are at the casters now (see photo) and will be available in plain and with signage as an optional extra. Initially, Tancred Bros and VIMA will be available and then followed by William Angliss meats.

Arriving from the etchers will be T3, 4 and 5 series commonly known as the low nose, H and the high cab with later series long hood style. Sorry, but the low nose T and H are already pre-ordered and I’ll have to get more soon as I can get more decals.

Also arriving in the etch will be a very limited number of W’s to fit the terrier mech that will be re-released by Dapol later in the year.  The kit will feature 3D body, etch parts, decals and laser cut items.  Yes, there is room for a decoder and weight!

The website will be updated soon with new SOH figures as I have been steadily increasing the no of kits held.



Happy modelling during these COVID times

Everything at once

I have to cool my heels whilst I spend some time restocking for orders I’m trying to fill as I have in my hot little hand eches for the Ys, flat top Ts and high nose Ts.

 Also, I have the trial eches for the later series Ts and along with the W class.



Happy modelling Chris Pearce
