Love it! That should get some great reactions at the shows!

Does the overhanging seat affect rear coupling?

Great little SBS Gerry, thanks for sharing!

I hadn't thought of moulds pressed into the clay, something I'll have too look at. Are they of your own creation?

Re: Black Hall

For some reason Black Hall Sidings slipped past me unremarked when it first appeared. It's a very attractive little layout, both in O9 and G9 - a great idea to make it convertable.Iit's amazing how it can switch so easily between the two scales - trees become shrubs :D Quite agree, that first shot ...

Hi Kevin, Here's a little photograph for comparison. It's a phone pic so you'll excuse well, everything about it. http://i671.photobucket.com/albums/vv75/bluephone/ae624f54.jpg The pallet and pump truck are Playmobil (not from the pirate set I'll hasten to add).

Hi Mike. http://i671.photobucket.com/albums/vv75/bluephone/add8057d.jpg The old boy sitting down in the white is a Preiser offering, from Preiser PR45183 set. The fellow is sitting next to him is an SLM 1:22.5, Jon I think his name was. The two wingers are SLM 1/24 chaps, I've forgotten their names!...

Something I'll have to try. A second batch of punches showed up today (including one I already had) so no excuse not to press on! As an aside, my work takes me all sorts of places. I'm quite lucky sometimes as I get to go to a lot of major sporting events. Sometimes though, I go places like this... ...

Looking good. I must say, i quite like the look of having something outside the circuit. I like the look of the train passing between the two features.
Just my ha'pennys worth though!

Thanks Steve. Good idea regarding the upside-down U. I think anything solid might look a bit odd. :lol: A mobile garden eh.... I couldn't believe it when it fit like that!

I struggle with plasticard, find it quite frustrating. These sort of results are an inspiration though. I will master it!

Hello! Constant work has put the kibosh on doing anything fun in the past 3 weeks, but today presented an afternoon off. I've been thinking about Gnine coaching stock, largely finding dead ends. I picked up a cheap N gauge bogie wagon on ebay and set to dismantling it for its under gubbins. Whilst w...

Nice little centre piece there, I like your ideas for it. Regarding your ground cover, the scatter you've used would make a good base for further work. Maybe static grass of varying lengths and shades, hanging basket liner or countless other products available! Between working (yeah right) I've been...

I had looked at that Steve, it's the tender loco that has been giving me grief. There's a side seating loco here http://echillsrailwayobserver.webs.com/standardgaugewe2011.htm (great miniature railway resource), I might go with that.

Hmm, I see what you mean. I'm guessing it didn't clean up so well? I might have to abandon the N gauge standard gauge loco idea, short of heavy figure modification which is a bit daunting.
