Modelik narrow gauge

I live in a small village once the centre of a thriving tin mining community boasting an extensive narrow gauge railway system.Sadly,there is little evidence left that the system ever existed.Our small village museum decided to set up a display with a few relics,photo's & documentation,we are hot on the trail of an original loco,in the meantime I offered to make this to include in the display.

Thumbs up

Looks like a good deal. That should garner some interest and deserved praise from the visitors.

My efforts were well received by the museum,unfortunatly our volunteer staff now have to spend time convincing visitors that it is a paper model.

Well, see, here's where you do a partial build and display the incomplete model with the kit to demonstrate what paper/card modeling is!
Yeah, given the town's theme is tin mining I would assume the models would be tinplate!

HaHa.I would like to build two of every model so I could get it right the second time,however I struggle to get the first one finished and cannot force myself to build another the same,so it's move on to the next struggle.
