Introduction

Welcome to New Zealand Rail 120, Lewis Holden's blog on modelling railways in New Zealand. I'm now modelling in 1:87 (HOn3.5). For NZR plans see the Plans page, or the NZ120 Facebook group.

DSG on two modules

Today I tested my traverser module with my first MMW module. It worked, so I made a video!

LSC containers II

Along with a DC class loco print (more on that later!) this arrived from Shapeways the other day:

All the right parts.
The model was cleaned using acetone and had a quick primer spray. I then glued the ends of the container together and painted it Tamiya X-3 Royal Blue. The ends were painted the same silvery colour I used on my GT class wagon. The frame remains primer grey as this seems to be a close match to the pictures I've seen.

The finished product.
You can buy the model here from Shapeways.
