A First

I arrived home tonight to a parcel from Europe (via Wellington).
Inside we find this item. Its an Ab from Kiwi Trains scaled specially for the Summit model at the Fell museum.

Its my first chance to see a Shape ways model up close. Well, its sparkly. The resin seems to be rather brittle (though I have yet to attack it with a knife or file). There are striations from the printing process on most of the surfaces. I'll give it a coat of paint which should give me a better idea on a plan of attack to get it onto the layout.

So it was off out to the Man-sion and time to grab what seems to be a useful article from the local rag.
'Tally Ho chaps'
