Recently there have been comments that there are not enough pictures of our collection of rolling stock on this blog.
(In fact, for those who care to look, there is a link to archived Model Of The Week posts from a few years back which feature a lot of what we have in our stock boxes.)
However, I thought I would take advantage of a fortnight's enforced separation from the modelling bench to show you a few of my favourite things.
(Have you cottoned onto the title now?)
For me, the most satisfying models are always the ones you've scratch built, because you have the double challenge of working out how to do it and then actually doing it.
It also means you can own unique and obscure models like our version of the FR Cherry Picker wagon.
The bucket at the end of the boom was really difficult to form out of styrene - and it was even more difficult to get it to keep its shape - so I have no hesitation in choosing it as my first favourite thing.
