Crate expectations!

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

Crate expectations!

A 'wooden' crate in 1:25th scale for my Castle Works layout

Again - no expense spent.. Materials used - cardboard from a Weetabix box, a coffee stirrer as internal bracing and the 'rope' handles are made from the string that was used to hold together a sack of spuds from the supermarket.. ;)

Only another 7 to make as a wagon load..
