June Meeting 2018

Hey hey, firstly I'd like to apologise for the average photos as most know I am not well at the moment so I haven't exactly been on the ball. This meeting was big for a post exhibition meeting with a roundup of "internal combustion" locomotives being the theme of the evening. As with every other meeting, we had news and a "bring and show" followed by the main part of the meeting before breaking for tea. Below are photos from the bring and show:

Kelvin's Son; Owen continues to impress us all with more of his 3D modeling work with these bogie R wagons. 
Owen also displayed a 3D printed cow.
John Hatch has proved to all of us that he has not been idle in his absence from the meetings by displaying his craftsmanship on his Australind cars.

Peter Edwards displayed some 3D printed AI carriages and ZP brake vans that he has been working on.
Stuart MacKay also displayed some modeling having modified this truck into a flatbed.
Finally Graham Watson demonstrated a new jig he has made for bending wire for use as brake piping under his BE cattle wagons.

Next was the theme of the meeting which was a roundup of internal combustion locomotives which was well represented. Below are photos of each of the classes represented on the night.
