Congratulations Gerry!
Well deserved. Hopefully the start of many more trophies to come.
I'll look forward to seeing some more photos from the show turn up on Mick's great website site at some point.

WOW Bill,

Looking really great! 8) It will make a good diorama in its own right, or a great start to a larger empire if you decide to add more on the on the end later.

Hi Bob,

I like the effect you have created by having the shop fronts set back at different distances, rather than all in a straight line. Nice work.

Hi Ron, Well, you have been busy! The jig for making that roofing is a great idea. The roofing sheets look increadibly good! And nicely coloured too. Did you have any trouble getting paint to stick to the tin foil? And did you hand brush or spray the paint on? p.s. The wooden building looks good too...

Nice job with the layout (and barn).
Looks like you have a hole in the back board behind the barn window. Are you planning to put details inside it or something?

Yes surprised to see such an old photo (2008) in there. Not sure where they found that one. There's lots more detail in that area now.

amazing colours (for the winter), especially the plant with the bright red stalks on it.

Very intriguing Gerry.

Do we get to see a closer view of the watering loco on top of the stand?
And whats that other contraption you have half hidden over the back left hand side?

Hi Alain,

Welcome to the group.
You are off to a great start with that bridge.

And something different from the usual 'pizza' layout - now we have a 'cheese' layout. Wallace and Gromit would be right at home! :lol:
