OK you lucky, lucky people. You're just going to have to trot on over and join the 7/8ths forum as I've discovered that David also wrote up his Mr Chips layout there with one significant difference, he loaded the photos directly on to the forum rather than linking to them in Photobucket!



Now that's what I call a result.

And more news just in.

Including a thread introducing himself David has a dozen 1/12 scale threads over on the 7/8ths Lounge, all with pics still extent. They are listed here:

Yet more...


I've managed to track down David's Flickr account. Only 58 photos, often a bit blurry, but at least it gives you further opportunities to see how he does stuff.

Those little locos are simply wonderful. Great weathering for working machines.
