The rest of the track was laid today and I now have a picture of a former Japanese narrow gauge hopper so i can start building representation of one of their hoppers. The photo shows a Japanese Kato loco and pair of wagons that survive in Bougainville.
I have pieces from Shapeways - 1/55th scale chassis for correct gauge wheels and 1/48th scale hopper bin.
Slow progress dabbling in aircraft assembly, vehicle conversion, tree building while progressing the railway and landscape construction. Sorry for poor phone photos, the lighting in the garage is terrible.
I've been overseas with work so not much progress although I was able to accumulate quite a few coconut fronds made in hotel rooms while watching TV. When I got back an order from France was waiting of me. A 1/48 scale WW2 Japanese Navy roller - who would have though someone made kit of that.
The winch is for the front of the International tractor above.
