The next part, to be published in the October issue, describes the RMS dining cars.
And now for something completely different, a building article with a bonus!
The article not only describes the construction of the building, but also includes full colour drawings that can either be used as a plan to scratchbuild the structure, or scanned/photocopied from the magazine and assembled as a kit!
A lower resolution version of the drawings is also available for download from the
Modelling the Railways of Queensland website:
This issue also sees another of the popular Branchline Ramblings from Ron Cunningham, plus some simpler construction articles for those who may find building a complete Southern Aurora set a little daunting!
This issue's Gallery features just some of the amazing work that appeared at the most recent Modelling the Railways of South Australia convention.
All this, plus the usual supporting features and fifteen pages of reviews and new product news, including reviews of the latest offerings from Austrains, Eureka and Auscision.
