As I have never exhibited at an exhibition (yet :D ), I must admit I had never thought of the problems from the point of view of other exhibitors. As a visitor, I find sound on layouts intriguing from a 'that would be good on my home layout' standpoint. As an advert for sound on a layout they can be...

Hi Wayde, as you say, the proportions are a bit 'strange' but then we have pictures of Emmet style locos that people are going mad over :D I presume the cab is so high (as Steve points out) to enable the driver to stand. If that's the intention then you could raise the height of the hood/bonnet and ...

I can see the photo now Gerry, don't know why not before! I remember reading on a link from (I think) Pat's threads on veg., using small balls of Fimo rolled on a small file (for the dimples) to make oranges. If you use orange Fimo, no need to paint 8)

I know exactly what you mean - very good description :D Never seen any for sale though. If you only needed to see one side, how about making one then casting the rest in resin? If the back is flat you would only need an open mould. Cast a few then make another mould with those so you can make severa...

A set of four heads only is £4 including p+p. (mix and match if you want 8). If ordering with figures, you can order individual heads at £1 each but it's not really worth the p+p for individual heads.

I am hoping to add to the variety of heads in time. (TIME! what's that :D )

Look close enough to me :D :D . Would it be easier though, to make the box from a 'printie' and fill with the seeds, glued then painted? Or would that not be strong enough? Just seems a lot of effort casting the 'box' then covering it with the printed sides.
