    Keeping busy

    Not done much in the way of bowls or serious turning but have been busy in the workshop trying to build A Loco, tractor and a truck, They should keep me going for a couple of months before they are complete.

    First two photos Loco third forth and fith are of the tractor and the last two the truck. The first two are more display models and the truck is tough enough to be played with

    Managed a little work on the tractor today what with turning and shaping managed to fit some of the pieces that seem to be gathering in a box still more to fit yet.

    The work on the models still moving forward.

    The truck is the nearest to completion. As can be seen.

    the train needs quite a bit doing to it managed the funnel and sand dome. Also the cowcatcher complete along with the buffer bar it attaches to it. And finally the pistons turned with their end caps these need to be separate parts as the hole in the piston is larger than that in the end cap, also a couple of tanks made. Other work is just a case of drilling holes for the bogie front and rear
