Nice job MG! This is what I like most about our hobby - modellers like yourself using innovative ideas and stuff you often have lying around to model with rather than just buying pre-made. There are people up and down the country beavering away in garages and sheds being creative and trying things out. Great stuff!

Thanks. That loco is from a kit but a lot of what I have made is scratchbuilt. I love this scale and gauge because while there is a need to make everything, using basic 00 gauge mechanisms things are not that difficult, though I have been struggling this last year or so to do anything much. (Hence you may have noticed more pictures of various tools rather then the things I have made).
To beginners, I reccomend to start with hand tools and go from there. The first power tool is always going to be a good quality mini drill, and then a soldering iron with a some sort of decent stand.
