Review of 2021 : Models

On the model kit front 2021 was frustrating, the year started off well and it looked like we might finally reach 100 completed kits, but then things ground to a halt mid-year and didn't restart. So, only four kits were completed in the end. However, there is a healthy stockpile of pending kits so hopefully next year will be more fruitful.

On the model railway front, Birches Green gradually increased it's rolling stock supply with a couple of locomotives and wagons. The goods yard was completely relaid with HOe track. The N gauge track which was replaced was used as part of the new N gauge Shard End layout which is also slowly taking shape. Progress on both, and maybe a third micro-layout, will continue in the new year.
