    Hot dawg, I like the livery on that F7. Is that Kato or custom? I don't quite get what you did there ...

    The F7 and caboose were sold in a set from the mid 90's.
    I had been looking for them for a while when I found them on ebay.

    They had been part of someones collection and look like they were hardly ever run, really nice condition.

    The chassis was the original non DCC friendly style so at the time I pulled the shell off and placed it on a new style DCC friendly chassis.
    Since then I've replaced the chassis with the early style that has been milled by Aztec to accept a decoder.

    Convinced myself I needed a four axle truck loco to test my track with. This arrived yesterday:

    It sounded like a good excuse, anyway!

    After a summer of shenanigans I'm turning my attention back to N scale and, to kick things off, I received a nice little airbrush in the post. It is very simple and self contained. The compressor is integrated and it runs cordless for about ten minutes. In emergencies it can be plugged into it's usb charging cable and run on direct power. So no panic fi you run out of charge halfway through spraying

    It cost 30.euros and I'm delighted

    Now, the reason for this purchase is the boys at tru-color paints (very helpful bunch) were happy to send paint overseas, unlike every other supplier I contacted, which resulted in the following arriving just after the airbrush;

    Great pieces!
    I've been looking for a reasonably priced caboose for a while now to convert to an OR&W caboose.

    Couple of questions: how much noise does it make? Do you get a pulsing of the paint flow as the compressor operates or is it smooth, like one would get from a reservoir?

    It makes very little noise and the paint flow is smooth, unlike my hand which is wobbling and not helping an even coverage The compressor runs at high speed which eliminates any pulsing. I have never used an airbrush before so I can't compare it to others. I can't imagine it is very good quality but then 30.euros isn't exactly bank breaking compared to other brushes. I love the cordless aspect of it and think it would be great for scenic work as one can reach over things and get to far off corners of the layout. I give it 8/10 based on er, em, no previous experience with airbrushes.
    Thanks, Tom

    I treated myself to this from Exactrail after thinning the herd.
    It's an old model with new paint and they added the Rack 'N' Pinion door opener assist like they did on their Southern Style Waffle Boxes a few years ago.
    It just fits my era so there won't be much weathering to do.

    This month I have lashed out thousands of dollars ... sadly only a small portion of that is for the hobby What I have bought for the hobby though is as follows:

    1 X 8oz Tube of No-Oz
    1 X Pkt of 1/2" Track Nails
    4 X Pkts Peco Rail Joiners
    1 X MRC 1370 DC Controller.

    The No-Ox arrived last Wednesday while the other items are stuck somewhere in Rochester NY
