Adding details



The RNZAF MT lined up for inspection



A couple of scratchbuilt No 13 cab trucks are the next projects then I really must get some more rolling stock running on the railway.

Finally finished 20 coconut trees care of several weeks of overseas hotel rooms giving me time to cut out lots of coconut fronds.

Of cause every good Kiwi Pacific airstrip needs a few CMP Puddle Jumpers.



The donor kit for the chassis and wheels is the Airfix Bedford MWD with a modified front axle to add the diff.

Yes there has been some scope creep from two to four baseboards although the two new boards will be slightly smaller when finished. I have more rail track and points ready to run the line to the RNZAF sawmill and beach jetty scene with a PT boat and landing craft.

The Chev 8 cwt build is making great progress.
