Model Rail 158 / July 2011

July 2011 Model Rail is out!

The cover image is from the 'Workbench' section and champions Spencer Pollard's ground breaking weathering techniques. Whilst the subject is an O gauge 'Just Like the Real Thing' Class26, the methods described can be applied to almost any scale. Spencer is primarily a military modeller, and when I photographed the loco at last year's Warley Show, he said that this was his first attempt at a model railway loco! If the excellent results here are anything to go by, then military modellers ARE the ones to watch! I'm hoping that we'll see more of Spencer's work in the pages of Model rail in due course.

And now, a brief look at the rest of this issue....

Regular followers of this blog will have noticed that I've not been posting much recently, however does not mean that I've not been enjoying the hobby, quite the opposite - for I've been literally burning the fuse at both ends providing photography and a couple of features for the next issue of Model Rail which is dedicated to my favourite railway in the form of a Somerset & Dorset Special! 'S&D Summer Saturdays' will be out on the 14th of July.
