I'm still here

It has been awhile since my last post and I wanted to let you all know that I am still here and that  while progress has been slow on the layout there has been some modelling done.

As I have mentioned in the past I have had some ongoing issues with my sight after an accident a couple of years ago. I had surgery on my eye last year and the recovery time has been slow but thankfully after a new pair of glasses my vision is back to a pretty good level. If there is a lesson out of my experience, it is look after your eyes. Without them it can make modelling a bit difficult.

The difficulties with my sight has meant that I haven't been doing a lot of modelling. I found I got very frustrated and for awhile I just haven't wanted to work on the layout. I did keep plugging away at a project that I have wanted to achieve for some time. I have a number of the excellent AMK kits of the Victorian narrow gauge passenger cars. They have made kits for both the NBB and the NAB and I have been slowly working away at them.

I am very pleased with how they have come together

They are an extremely detailed kit that has been well thought out, and I am pleased that the long suffering passengers of Geehi & Mt Bogong now have some comfortable transport.
