:( lays down tools, folds arms and sighs... top top stuff again Chris.
I actually quite like the 'rough' figure.. it's a style.
It reminds me of a book I had some years ago about making papier mache models.. puppets and things.. must find that again.

I'm too stunned to really say the right thing. But life isn't fair. Petar (Versif) was a kind, generous man with a happy spirit. I will miss him.

Haven't done much modelling lately.. but I have made some slow progress on this layout.. Board built and covered in cork. Track laid and wired up and tested. Despite very iffy track laying.. I've tested with a couple of locos and combinations of stock.. all seems to be trundling around quite nicely....

:shock: looking at that image I was trying to work out what it was that made those buildings really 'work'. Apart from the excellent brickwork - I think it's the depth of the windows and doors.

The colonial fort thing sounds good (I remember visting Portobello in Panama as a youngster)... alternatively, how about a structure made out of bits of salvage - parts of ships at wrong angles etc. ? (Seeing as they are pirates)

I never got the three screw rail bender to work properly. I understand how it works (kind of) but no two rails I put through it came out with the same radius. Maybe my feeding technique was all wrong? :?

Thanks guys.
Andreas - the first loco is a scratchbuilt body on a Sidelines chassis.
It's called 'Pluto' because it's a bit like a Planet.:wink:
Most of the bits came from a 1:24 plastic car kit.
:D No - it's not for sale! But thank you for the compliment!
