Better late than never!

Hi all,

It's about time I updated my blog - better late than never! I have been very busy of late with two stints in hospital not helping. I have managed to keep my Facebook page up to date with new Rails In Scale kits and detail items.

My work on the coil wagon kit continues, with much progress being made. I hope to have the re-release kit ready soon.

I have also completed two bridge kits. One is of a bridge that runs over a creek on the Lions/Border loop road in Northern N.S.W. The other, a rail underpass based on a few I have photographed around N.S.W.

I also have added a number of small detail items to my RIS range including line side water tanks, sleeper and rail platform facing, old sleeper junk piles, rail buffers (low wood type), brass turnbuckles and wagon junk loads. All will be listed on my eBay store.

In the RIS range of signs, there are five new sets available from petrol stations signs to cigarette billboards.

I also weathered a NSWGR 47 and some QR locos (see facebook page).

I will do a full post on the 47 class with some photos in a few days.
For now hears some photos of the bridge kits!

              The finished underpass, road sign, and billboards kits are all displayed in this diorama.

                                                 Above photo shows the rear of the diorama.

    They look nice, even though I sadly have no room on my layout.



  2. Hi Colin,

    Not a worry mate, Perhaps some of my line side junk would go well around the turntable at Akuna?


  3. Hi Dean,

    The bridge kits look good. Are they timber kits or urethane castings?

    Cheers, Ian.

  4. G'day Ian,

    The casting are urethane, a photo of the kit castings can be found at this link..

    You may need to cut and past the link.

    Cheers, Dean.
