Busy, Busy, Busy

The last few months have flown by - hard to believe it's nearly the end of May...

So, having part-written countless blog post drafts, I've not had the time (nor inclination I suppose) to finish them. Suffice to say, I probably should.

Having had my Birthday recently, I'm now inundated with lots of bits I've been wanting for ages and claiming was imperative for my 'making' needs. Highlights include tonnes of buckeye couplings, a couple of new locos, a Faller car system kit, a loco kit and some DCC gear.

I'm pushing forward with my model rail layout at the moment, with the awful weather I've not really bothered with the R/C vehicles, though I have sorted most of the electronics out for the projects I'm working on. What is mostly outstanding now, is time to design and 3D print the parts I need to complete those projects and some time to paint/finish them.

The rail layout is naturally growing and evolving far beyond the original plans, but it is moving forward. I'm working on the design at the moment and a little stuck with it, but over the next few weeks or so I should be laying track and roadways. I'll be visiting Miniature Wunderland in Hamburg as well very soon, so hopefully that'll also give me the inspirational shove I need to finish the design.

My workbench is also getting busy, with a number of model conversions on the schedule, in addition to the electronics and 3D print projects I'm working on. Pictures will start flowing shortly, I promise.

Finally, head over to www.makerbase.co.uk and check out what I've been working on since January - we'll be officially launching really, really soon, but in the meantime we're 'beta' launching with a smaller set of products. Sign up to the newsletter and you'll be in the running for our prize draw as well.

Okay, back to the workbench...
