Recently I picked up a substantially complete model of Royal Chester built to the famous W.J. Hughes design in 1 1/2" scale. To date most of the work has been completed - still needing completion are the engine components, boiler fittings, steering and various other miscellaneous tasks.
A set of drawings has been bought down with me to university, and the W.J. Hughes book has been ordered and I plan to be ready to commence work over the summer holiday period.
