Unfinished projects and having another go at the blog

Decided I would have another go at doing this blog, will see how it go's this time round!
Ive recently moved into a more permanent residence after living in a college for the last 3 years its a welcome change! Finally I have a table that's just dedicated to modelling and it hasn't taken long for all my stuff to clutter it up.

While sorting out my gear and starting on a couple of new kits I decided I'd better go back and finish off a few projects that just didn't get completed (before there are far to many!!!)

The first (still going) I decided to get around to completing is a Ezi Kits Z19 class with a Baldwin tender,
I have fitted all wheel pick ups and the motor is in the boiler so as to fit a decoder and speaker in the tender.
I was talking to Ian Phemister a while back (pretty sure it was the last Armidale convention) about the kits and fitting DCC to them and he was kind enough to give me some info in regards to this.

so after a few late nights all I have to do is fit the piping and hand rails then put a SMD in the head light and it will be ready for the paint shop! Anyway here are a couple of pictures of the progress so far
