Where has the time gone

Well its been some time since ive been able to post a blog. This time of year is always busy with work, family events on and even laundry renos all the above equal not much time for trains.  I'll give you a quick up date on the T3. I was hoping to get this model finished by now but i had to do so more mods on the shell and chassis to make things fix, than first thought.  Not much room to play with.  Ive tested the decoder with a 13mm speaker and it sound is really good for the size of the speaker. 

Design work on the turnouts is on going. I found a couple a faults which are now fixed.  Im planning to make a turnout soon using the old fashion way of following a paper template.  What i have done tho is put together a spirit design water tank.  This kit is small so i was able to find some time to do it.  All up it took me about 2hrs of work to do including the little extras i added.  Below are some construction, painted and than weathered photos.
