Ticking a few boxes

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.

At busy times the station platform becomes packed - its then removed and replaced with the wagon repair/tea making shed

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

& still lots to do - detailing to the rear by the wall, more weeds, the tool shed/tea making facility needs tools and tea making equipment (in the making of), the front "add-on" with the sheep needs more work etc etc. Perhaps a nice tall tree at front left or at the back, stood behind the wall? Also behind the wall i plan to have a large free standing "backscene" of sorts..

First show will be in June 2012 so plenty of time :lol:

Looking good, Roger. I like the stone wall and culvert at the front of the layout, a nice way of finishing the front of a baseboard.
Hello, I'm Dave.

So many modelling ideas, so little money!

Cheers pal! The culvert is actually HO from Unit Models but i thought it looked right. I've always dabbled in micro's and like the idea of making the edges of the little "world" intersting if i can.

Good news for me - the layout has been invited along to this years Fathers Day (weekend) Show organised by Lord & Butler Model Shop here in Cardiff (Wales, UK). It's the 5th year of the show which is free to the public (donations welcome to local charity), has free parking, will feature at least 7 layouts, a cafe and set in the great location of an old pumping station!

My little layout features in colour on the flyer for the show!! :D

If anyone is in the South Wales/Cardiff area that weekend please come along!
