NCB TIPPERS AND A POOCH CALLED PEPPER
Lots of written work has taken up my time over the past week or so. However, I did manage to make a bit of progress on a pair of Lledo GUY Tippers for Maudetown Colliery. A couple of hours' work have now seen the detailing complete, with new etched mirrors, steps and wipers, plus scratch-built rear fenders installed. This will be described in MR155 as part of a larger look at improving road vehicles.
The weathering needs to be finished and some suitable coal slurry loads added to the tipplers, which I hope to achieve by the end of the week, before the lorries can go back into safe storage pending progress on the Maudetown extension. However, it's been a busy time in the Dent household and we have a new member of the Collective: Pepper, the white Border Collie. She's settling in, slowly but surely, and is already helping me in my work and proving to be a lovely companion.
