    Building motorized bikes is only a fairly recent thing for me to indulge in. I've also enjoyed modelling various things since early childhood and managed to make a good living as a professional modeller since 1990, designing and manufacturing my own range of narrow gauge model train kits.
    In response to a few forum members asking me to share some more pics of my models, I thought I'd create this Tavern thread to share photos of some models I've built over the last 25 years. Some of these are built from my kits and others are models commissioned by customers that I've built/painted/weathered.

    RSCN4015.JPG I still occasionally dabble in a bit of military modelling just to keep my hand in with the chipping/weathering techniques. Very satisfying work when the results pay off.

    Some of the pics in the last two posts aren't showing up unless I click to upload them. Is this the case when anyone else views them? Didn't do anything different when I uploaded them earlier today, so not sure what;s going on.

    Can't find the words. Our normal English vocabulary doesn't do your work justice.

    Caterpillar tracks, steam power, and a log hauler - have you ever contemplated a Lombard half track to add to the stable?

    I think we are all now standing in awe at your skill anyway.
