Racking them up

Today the first ever 009 society kit was delivered to my door. In fact two were. The kit is for the Hudson toast rack carriages (rainmakers). One of these runs in the WHHR heritage train in maroon and another alongside two more modern versions on the FR in dark green.

Tonight I made a good start on these. All the plastic parts were cut out and cleaned up (it's a new kit so the castings were crisp) and made a start glueing on the curved side guards. Good kit so far.

Also around my work bench at the moment are carrs 100 (which recently had it's roof added), 14, 24 and 2043. The latter two have had their roofs cut out of brass and curved recently.

Local to our London office is a superb model shop and I invested recently in some more tamiya paints and cleaning solution for both brushes and airbrushed.
