Of course it would turn out better than you would think, im not the average bachmann fourm/youtube dipstick, im one of the top 3 Thomas modellers around Grin as said by everyone basically Tongue

Ok then, Ive done the 2nd Layer of Green and painted the buffers Silver and now he looks loads better, could do with a clean up and the bloody valve gears :-/ Trust me he looks alot better infront of you then in pics Cheesy

Looks good.  Has the same face and body style as the one in the book.  Looks so good that it looks even better than my 73 Cub Cadet and man I don't say that all the time.  Well unless it’s a girl at school.  But anyway that’s one good model you has there mate. Cheesy

That is so awesome, another great model by HenryBlue! Grin  Hey HenryBlue, sorry for asking but, what are you planning to use for Ivo Hugh's face once you make him? Huh?  As I said, sorry for asking............

Jock is my favorite engine now, and in my Thomas world, he works on the Skarloey Railway with Frank, Skarloey, Rheneas, etc. since he & Frank are the only Small Railway engines ever made in Ertl diecast.

An excellent job i must say, where do you get all your kits from?

I've modelled 009 at a club, and have found it hard to find some of the kits resembling the Skarloey engines, any ideas as to where i may find them?

GEM do some OO9 Kits. I have their Varikit and HenryBlue's Rheneas was constructed using a GEM Dolgoch. (Without Boiler)

Yes spoy on, GEM Do some BODY kits for the Talyllyn Locos (engines that the Skarloey engines are based on) They do Douglas (Duncan) and Dolgoch (Rheneas) although the kit i bought had loads of missing parts so i had to create the boiler, smokebox and pipework myself.


Heres a directory to the producers of the kits on the Talyllyn kits

The Skarloey engines are good,but only Rheneas is RWS.The others all have
their TV livery,and I've already told you about my issues with Peter Sam on
MTF. Wink No offense,just a friendly reminder that these aren't exactly top notch.
I've seen Awdry's models,and they look a bit more real,although Peter Sam
could do with smaller pony wheels. Tongue .Keep up the good work.As for my
narrow gauge stuff,it'll just be the ERTL bodies on matching(possibly bashed
to be so)HO Narrow or N scale wheel bases.It'll probably be very pathetic next
to what your models will look like when finished.You're:
A.REALLY GOOD at this
B.Able to afford actual OO9 stuff. Tongue
