Dennis, Arry and Bert - Nearly Complete!

The three projects undertaken earlier in August, are almost finished.




The faces for 'Arry and Bert were rendered by Skarloeyfan to look like the CGI versions as seen on the Take 'n' Play 'Arry and Bert Die-casts. The chassis for Dennis was also rendered by Skarloeyfan to have the jackshaft under the cab, and has successfully worked as planned.

All that is left to do now, is finish the lettering on Bert, and paint the wheels on Dennis.

More progress on Dennis!

He's so near to being complete, the only thing missing is the jackshaft, which at present, i'm having a little trouble with, but can hopefully resolve the issue.

Dennis OO Project - Halfway There!

Dennis is getting closer to completion, the model is having the last few details finalized before it is primed and painted.



The chassis has not yet been finalized, as the Jackshaft still needs work, but this is currently how Dennis is looking.

Second short film in the works!

Since the first short film from the Railway Stories from Sodor series was posted, a second short film is now in the works, and will feature a character from the episode 'Heave Ho Thomas'.

This character sadly has no real background story to him, and sadly has not featured in the series since Season 12 aired. He is based on a PRR K4 locomotive, painted royal blue with bright red wheels and has a cowcatcher on his front running plate.

Details about the release date, will follow soon enough!

September Updates & Message from Admin!

Greetings to all from the World of Thomas Modelling.

We apologize so much for the lack of updates and inactivity spell as of late. We like to take time out from modelling and live our lives by going out and socializing with friends and family that we know and keep close to us.


Septembers Updates are a follows:

- Elsbridge Branch layout updated!
- OO 'Den' Project back online.
- Railway Stories from Sodor Short Finished!


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now a message from our admin.

"It has come to my attention recently that a fair few sick 'people' on YouTube have been spatting our name in the form of videos with 'test' in their titles and some rather unpleasant descriptions about some our of members videos not being 'true tests' because our videos show models actually hauling wagons, instead of running on a crappy Hornby 'rolling road'.

A test is showing the model in action and seeing how much it can pull before wheel-slipping.. not just standing static on a lump of metal with rollers and calling it test, because that is not a test, all that shows is the models wheels moving, no test whatsoever!

However.. i cannot speak for the majority of those on other forums who continue to spat our communities name by making poor videos and calling them a 'test' and posting them on YouTube, by also adding some rather distasteful slander in their comments and trying to convince our members aswell as others that our community is not worth bothering with.

Let me assure you, that the lesser individuals of these other so called 'thomas model / fan forums', are NOT welcome to our boards, and never will be. We are a clean and respectable community, and people the likes of those, who i won't name for the obvious reasons, are not worth bothering with.

We have close friends who know that we are true to our name, even affiliated with online stores that give us the true dates of when new items are released and know what our community is all about, but, sometimes, it takes a little more than brains to work out little things like that.


So please, to all those who don't know us, stop trying to make yourselves look clever by showing us up, it really doesn't make you look good, and your karma level is far below disgraceful. Even for your standards.."





I apologize to all those on our model community regarding this matter, it's just very sad that they continue to act like immature children instead of mature adults, who i would have thought by now, would have the sense to act their ages and be a bit more true to their names.

We hope this won't effect your continued support and likes of our community, and again, we apologize for these people giving off the wrong impressions about a community they are not even part of.
