Well guys I been playing (very poorly) with Autocad but just got this trial piece back from a company in Scotland. It was a plaything really to see if I could raise my game a bit after being inspired so much by what the German guys and Carsten in particular have been doing with the 44 tonner.
I am no draughtsman as you can see but what I will say is if this thick as s### Englishman can do it then every one of you can as well. Really I am getting up in the years and struggle with cad and all that stuff but realised sometimes you got to bite the bullet and try for yourself. I already have seen a lot of flaws but can fix that but the main thing is I am pleased with myself for a change and eager to try more stuff now

Thanks Carsten from you that is indeed praise. But really it was you that made me realise that we have to do things for ourselves in this scale and then pool our knowledge for the benefit of all. I have a long way to go but am pleased I started the journey

I have only dabbled with etching but I'm very impressed! :thumbup: My first couple of attempts were a disaster.

Mark it is the start of a Norfolk and Western Z1B I like the more obscure stuff and this one I saw in the Arrow the NWHS superb publication a while ago. I wanted to model something reasonably accurate and this is my foot in the water moment, I have been encouraged lately by the guys who are trying stuff like Berndt and yourself with the super SW and the German RS3 and 44 tonner and decided to try something for myself for a change.
Problem is now i've got the bug and am looking at everything I can to draw up and going back to my previous problem of starting but never finishing anything at all but what the hell I am happy doing it
