Wallace and Gromit loco

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.

Great Jacko, whilst I realise that it's just a trial I think that running off track-end would be just the thing that Wallace would do - maybe into grooves in the street. :wink:

I'm waiting for the Gromit who puts the track in front of the loco :lol: as in "The Wrong Trousers"

Laughed so much the first time I saw it I was rolling on the floor, my sides were hurting and tears were rolling down my cheeks :shock: :roll: :D :lol:

Maybe the builder should change his name to Wacko Jacko. Nice one mate.

But has Wallace got the correct trousers on for the job?

The cheese is stored in the rocket behind the loco.

Cracking model.

I like the detailing you have put in so far.
Are you going to include items featured in the Wallace & Gromit films on this layout, or is it just going to be free-lance (with some humor)?

Brilliant work so far.

So how are you going to get Gromit to lay the track as in "The Wrong Trousers"? We all laughed so much we cried at that the first few times we saw it :lol: :lol: :lol:

Needs a suitably eccentric layout to match?
