Work is continuing on 138s tanks and on 87s other parts. I also mixed some brick red yesterday (made from acrylic vermillion and railmatch light rust) and painted a load of waggons and vans in that base colour. Two roofs were painted grey and a few slate waggons therefore also got greyed up. A line up of 11 or so more slate waggons remains to be greyed. The black details and strappings will be added too. I already have slate loads for most of the waggons.

I also called into maplins and bought one of these - a soldering tool kit. Some of the tools are meant for electronic applications, but many of them are very useful indeed.
