The Buffmaster Designs engines seem to be cast out of unobtanium as sawing them down to size is the very devil of a job. I wish I had a band saw as my poor old razor saw is having a tough time of it. The DB mouldings front fans are a much better shape than the Buffmaster ones so I'm going to combine the two.



Screwfix (your nearest is Chepstow) have one for about 110......but think of the workout your biceps are getting with the razor  saw!!


It's not my biceps I'm worried about, it's the teeth of my razor saw. I only bought it 3-4 months ago, and I may have to get another one after this build.  :banghead:

Things will come to a grinding halt on this for a week or so as I'm off to Ireland on the ferry tomorrow. And I'm NOT taking any model stuff, well, nothing as big as a B-52 anyway.

I have got a 1/144 scale Hurricane that may well have its decals applied during the week, but that's an RW model destined for my model railway club's N gauge layout.
