    Any model makers on here?

    Edugeek is fully of different people with different hobbies. So is there any model makers on here or anyone who is building a model railway or has built one? I canít post images of my one up at the moment because I've forgot the link to the images. But will post some later when I get home.

    I've done a bit of the model railway thing. Still got my layout, although now at my Dad's house and not set up since having children and not having the space for it.

    This is Blackvale - a fictional modern(ish) era West Country branch terminus.

    Don't have the time or the space for much modelling at the moment, except I am very slowly building a model light aircraft from a balsa kit.

    Sorry no model railway here, I get my teeth into the real thing.

    I do enjoy a bit of wargaming though and painting up a 40k Snakebite Ork army and Dropzone PHR force!

    I used to collect Airfix as a kid, only WW2 planes though! My pride and joy was a huge 1:38 scale Lockheed P-38 Lightening that I had no room for, so hung it from my ceiling with fishing wire!



    Also used to collect/paint Warhammer 40K models. I chose the Chaos Space Marines. Loved painting them, though none of my other mates wanted to collect them too and do battle!

    Railway modeller here (early stages of a OO layout set in early 1990's). Currently getting the loft converted so I have more room for what I want to do!

    I'm married to one (making me a model railway widow) - does that count? Our entire garage is taken over with a GWR OO layout based around Didcot/Newbury branch lines, including a lot of scratch built station buildings. And it's a big garage! He's going to get me involved at some point making station nameboard signs on the computer.... And I've done a good job of reproducing brick paper for emergencies! Oh, and I get taken round old stations and photographed for scale . Better stop now, as I'm starting to sound very sad...

    I used to love building models - had cracking models of the USS Enterprise D and E - but they are probably in the tip now thanks to the West Highland Witch
