Here is the last of Barney's models Nick photographed. It is an industrial critter, probably 1:35 scale but Barney may have to correct me. Here is the first of five photos. -- Russ

Finished? Well , bits of it are finished . Hopefully , we will move in this year . Ask Russ to post the photos I sent him .

Wow - that's even better (the critter, not the house to move in)!
I'll make it. If I have to fly the five feet like a birdie.

I'll fly it. I'll make it.

 Russ , the critter is way bigger than 1/35th scale , more like 1/19th scale . I will take another photo later to show how big it actually is . This is the model I had a go at adding additional weathering . I haven't had the courage to attempt adding anything to Fred or Harvey yet .

   Nick , making the most of my release from the corner. No doubt I shall be back there soon .

Indeed especially the weathering caught my eye (not to disparage Barney's model at all!).

Barney had an article on this loco in The Review about ten years ago ( No.87 July 2011) and he says it is 1/12th Scale , which makes it even bigger.

Barney

Yes 1/12 scale - full build article no 87

The article comes under the heading of "the oily one"  An early dabbling in 1/12th scale to create this evocative portrait  of a rusting ,leaking diesel waiting for parts that will probably  never come (words of the late Roy C Link)
And in the state its in now with its extra weathering its evidently the spare parts never did come !! - it got the name oily one from the damaged rear pistons (made from aluminium rod) my thanks to Nick for the extra weathering job on "poor old oily one"

Along with the above article on page 290 of the same issue no 87 - is a superb article by Nick of a Industrial Diorama in 1/35th scale using a brick by brick construction - Those were the days back in 2011 when Nick had a full head of Hair and his own teeth so we are told !! it was about the time when he was first released from "the corner"
