Stage 1 project

Post by tomo_ »

Good morning,

Just want to introduce myself; i'm going to continue Stage 1 restoration project.
Got some pieces of rolling stock of Green oval signature, now time for something more special.
Was thinking of FC101 project but got into Stage 1 project of Rob and thought it would be good idea to get it back to in motion.
Will post some pics as it goes.
