02-Porter Side tank conversion


 The Posty dropped off a nice surprise today, a Porter side tank conversion kit from Backwoods in the UK. The kit has a great number of options for the model as you'd choose to finish it. It replaces the tank that adds so much weight to the model, however at over 100g the whitemetal in this kit really should fix any weight issues.
 The mouldings in the kit are very clean and nicely detailed. The replacement headlight is ready to go with a hole drilled for the LED already. So, there you go...baby steps for now,
Oorroo, Geoff.

Post 01

Here we go, it's finally happened, yep, another blog to keep me away from modelling! Well not quite. I intend to just put a few notes in here to keep me on track, and to keep you informed.

This is a first for the 'Eternal Beginner' as I've never been associated with On30. Many modellers I know delve into several scales, or types of modelling, and I see this as a real way to keep your modelling fresh and interesting.

Mostly I should thank the modellers that I mix with, through their interest and passion, other modelling opportunities do  'pop up' I suppose you could say, thanks to Lefty and Son.

So welcome from me,
Oorroo, Geoff.
