An exciting and challenging new commission. I've been asked to build another pair of the Welsh Highland Railway's ex-SAR ballast wagons - but this time in 7mm scale.

It's the first time in 20 years of narrow gauge modelling that I've built stock in anything other than 4mm so it's going to a fascinating experience for me.

The basic hopper bodies have been knocked up out of 0.60" styrene already, and I have to say they do seem rather big. It's strange to be working on something you hold using your whole hand rather than just your fingertips.

I'll be blogging on the progress on the wagons here so keep dropping by if you're interested in finding out how I'm getting on.
