Staff Projects: Detail matters

AS YOU MAY BE AWARE, my modelling tastes are varied with interests covering classic BR Southern and Scottish Region traction, plus modern-era diesels and electrics. Amongst my favourites are the Southern Region’s Class 33 Bo-Bo diesels and Class 73 Bo-Bo electro-diesels (‘EDs’). So much so, have 40 or more ‘OO’ gauge Heljan and Dapol examples in my collection, many of which remain in ‘off-the-shelf’ condition.

Mark’s collection of ‘OO’ gauge Southern Region motive power is undergoing a mid-winter makeover with the current focus being Southern Region Class 73s and 33s. In the foreground are three recently completed examples while behind are the next candidates.

A recent audit also highlighted a stockpile of certain colour schemes, so a change of identity would be necessary for some – perhaps a new number and name. Perfect winter evening projects.
