KFJ - Koltorp advances

As you maybe seen on Google, today is the swedish National day. So free from work to relax and play. Got my track delivery! Koltorp module advances with second layer of paint.

KFJ - Drawer in 3D

What do you do when you want a drawer ? Not buy it ready-made from IKEA.., why should they have all the fun, and get paid for it as well .? No, you do it yourself of course!

KFJ - Koltorp plan

After much (re-)thought I reached the final plan for the Koltorp module. This is a plan which much better comply with my needs for long coal trains and also with three sidetracks, one quite long back behind the screenhouse. The station building will most.

KFJ - Green Anna

Black Victoria has become green Anna ! Did I do it again ? well, maybe not.., but I found the colour I want. I did go for the deep green on first pic below. I did rush it so I could see the colour on, so no airbrush (obviously..) but will mask Woolwich.. Apr 29, 2018 : Black Victoria has become green Anna !

KFJ - Another salvage attempt

While the glue on the layout is drying up I did try another salvage mission, this time on the black Victoria. First two photos shows after sanding, as much as I dared to without destroying to much detail. Second last two photos shows after primer and a co Apr 29, 2018 : While the glue on the layout is drying up I did try another salvage mission, this time on the black Victoria.

KFJ - Another happy day in the cave
