I have had a bit of time lately and inspired by an article in Garden Railways by Kevin about upscaling  I thought I would make a start.This is not a model of anything particular but I think the result gives the flavour of a ng wooden gon.
First of all,after disassembly,the body was cut down the middle and the ends taken off.New ends were made 10mm wider out of styrene with wood grain added with a saw blade.Once these were fixed a new floor was addded to give strength and the whole thing was re-assembled.The original underframe locating lugs were cut off and the underframe screwed to the floor.
A coat of primer and an ink wash, wood load and voila!!!
Have a go its fun!

The IMG tags don't work unless using the Quick Reply window. The easiest way to add photos to your post is to use the "insert/edit photo" button on the tool palate that comes up with the full message window which appears either when you begin a new topic or click the "reply" button on each messsage. It's the one that looks like the sun rising over the mountains. That opens a window where you enter the URL of your image. Click "OK" and your image appears in the message you're typing. Same goes for adding links. There's a button that looks like a chain which opens a similar window where you type the URL. 

Here's a trick--if you want to imbed a link into your text, type your text then highlight it, then click the "insert/edit link" button. That will imbed the link into the highlighted text. Otherwise it will just post the URL as a clickable link

BTW, Cool bash! Any photos showing an end view?

Later,

K

Hmmm........I've been doing it the "old" way and it's been working for me but Kevin's right that the Insert/Edit Image icon is the best way to do it!

Hi Kevin
After numerous tips fro Torby,many thanks again,I tried his method using the URL and CTRL/c and CTRL/V.This worked but I have to resize the pics every time,the old way was soooo simple.Bunny
