In this issue there’s a wide range of subjects covered:
Inset and paved trackwork, Brian Harrup modelling in P87, finescale HO.
Tyne Dock Hoppers, Pete Hill, etched and whitemetal kits assembled largely with superglue.
Working with whitemetal, David Brandreth shows soldering techniques for this material
The Country Drewery, Tim Shackleton weathers a 7mm Drewery using a variety of mediums
Swinging the Gates, Nigel Cliffe shows his level crossing gate mechanism
GE/LNER F5 Fank in S7 John A Gardner modifies the Connoisseur kit
The editorial thanks the subscribers and purchasers of issue one for their support and expresses surprise that it was accepted so readily. That another quality finescale magazine has been welcomed by modelers in addition to the well established Model Railway Journal, comes as no surprise at all. The printing quality is excellent, the layout reads well and the balance of articles is, I think, working really well. Like most MRJ’s I can see me reading everything, even though its not of direct relevance to my modelling. All I need now is the obligatory glass of red, or mug of tea, (its the internet law to state you are having one or the other), to settle down to read it.
