Darn fine as ever Ian.............. It's good to get a broader view of the quay as the flavour and character are starting to come out now. Also you can see how it's all beginning to knit together and provide a backdrop for you just know what is going to be a lot of hearty story telling. Personally I...

Hi Stefan........... I know little if not nothing about electrickery so this sort of thread does inspire me to take note at least. As an aside something I've noticed about your post though is the "img" code top and bottom of your pic's. If as I suspect you're using the "img" opti...

Looks to be an entertaining little layout - lots of "play" value it would seem. Also lots of potential for cameo modelling - good job.

Okie-Cokie then .............. First official update, or WIP, or SBS ............... take your pick. To my mind the first glaring anomaly in this body shell is the front screens.

Hey Gordon .................. Yes it is a shame, but as and when I can get some more pic's up it'll be obvious to all. The doors as cast are about a quarter of an inch thick - and to model them open I'd have to thin them down to about a mil' thick in order to sit outside of the rear van sides, which...

CA-Bedford van .. 1/25 (Gn15).

Hmmm ............ Here's a quandary. I've recently acquired, and started to build the Parts-box resin kit of the Bedford CA van. It's most definitely being built in order to populate the Top Yard, and as such perhaps could constitute an accessory? But it is never the less a specific Vehicular build ...

Nice piccy there Simon, and I certainly don't want it to look like modern block pavers - completely flat and regular. I think it will probably look ok once the gaps are filled and the general muck added. http://www.wansleybarton.co.uk/images/clovelly-large.jpg And Yes this is the sort of effect I w...
