I have been meaning to update the site with the SDS SHG for some time so here it is, another excellent model from SDS that runs well with the level of detail it has been well worth the wait. All that needed doing was to weather it as described in a previous post. The only thing I changed was to use 8BA bolts for the bogies, over kill maybe but it’s just something I do. After watching Ian Millard weather his rolling stock at the recent Liverpool exhibition I thought I would give his method a go using Diggers isopropyl alcohol with pastel chalks . The alcohol has many more uses such as cleaning track and rolling stock wheels etc. So next time Ian is at an exhibition demonstrating his method of weathering spend some time  watching and always ask questions.

Apart from adding the SHG to the roster of guards vans not much has been happening at Burrowa. As a footnote my brother in law bought an Ixion Models 32 class with 6 wheel tender and brought it up the weekend before last to give it a run and straight out of the box it ran quietly and smoothly in either direction at all speeds  and had no trouble hauling PHG,FL, 4 S,3 CW,1 BWH,1 PV,1 LV and 2 K. I eagerly await the EHO from SDS.                                                                                     That’s all for now.
