Self introduction
« on: May 13, 2019, 06:57:07 PM »
Hello: Thanks for adding me to this forum
By way of introduction, I'm a model engineer, building primarily steam locomotives, and the odd electric powered "diesel" locomotive.
I've done modeling in a number of areas including marine modeling. I restore old cars, and mtorcycles to top it off, plus a little bit of art on the side.
Like many modelers I have a number of progects on the go at any one times. I'm currently building a Great Western King class in 7 1/4" gauge, and a battery powerd "diesel" in 3" scale (7 1/4" gauge).
I'm located in Ontario, Canada with a trade of stationary engineer.
