In the meanwhile, the speeder is coming along. I’m waiting for styrene shapes etc. I bought 1/48 diamond pattern styrene but it looked so big I’ve now ordered HO scale instead.
I’ve bought a tichy little decoder (which isn’t shown here) to replace the massive board that comes with Ernie. The inside will be a little large compared to the plans so I will have to hide it with a bit of tarpaulin.
In the meanwhile, I bought a second Tamiya 1/48 US 1942 Staff Car which I started looking on flickr for abandoned rusty car photos. It promises to be an easy kit so the detail is in the weathering.
