WW1 Airfix Railway scenario inspiration

One of the Airfix and railways  photographs that inspired me as a 1970s child …

 

I recently rediscovered a wonderful little article in Railway Modeller  April 1976 issue  in its  ‘Junior Modeller’ section. It was written  by 15 year old Julian Chambers, based around his WW1 battlefield light railway using WW1 Airfix figures, tank and airplanes.

I read and reread this article many, many times as a 1970s child. I had these figures myself. If only the tiny men could be moved about though …

I have scanned the whole article and its photos onto my Sidetracked blog, to share it and also that I can’t lose it again for the next thirty / forty years.  Enjoy!

Airfix Figures and Railway Track? 

This has distracted or Sidetracked me only momentarily from an 1840s railway linked gaming scenario with Airfix figures that I am currently working on … and given me few ideas how to do this. Back to the painting and research desk!
