Lugsdale Road - The Perfect Crime

Posted by paulprice , 14 May 2018 · 887 views

n gauge finescale lms lms terminus north west scratchbuilt backscene exhibition layout?

Don't tell anyone especially the Domestic Overlord, but being the sneaky little chap that I am, I managed over the weekend to actually do some emulsion painting.

 

In my opinion this was massively successful for at least two reasons, the first being that the painting was the actually to the backscenes on Lugsdale Road and not a wall in Price mansions, but far more cunningly without the DO getting even the merest sniff of my exploits.

 

To be honest I'm not sure how I managed it, as I have the ability to get covered in paint by just walking past a DIY store, but the painting Gods were with me and I have committed the perfect crime and got away with it.

 

The only problem is that I do not have any pictures to show this mastery of crime, but once the heat has died down I may venture into the spare room and take a couple.

 

As the layout is supposed to be based somewhere in the grotty North West, being internationally known as a sun trap, the backscene will be painted to portray a typically tropical dank dark grey rain infested sky, brooding over rooftops and distant hills.

 

Oh and I also got to lay a little track for the trams down the middle of the street at the from of the layout but more on that can wait for another time.

 

I'm off to plan the next stage in my career as an international crime lord, so as long as the fuzz don't get me, until the next time as ever happy Modelling :)

Sounds good Paul, I look forward to seeing the dark and brooding sky.

 

Incidentally it is only fair to tell you that several of us on here are paid by the DO to monitor and report on your blog posts.

Mikkel, I actually thought for a moment I could trust you, but now I know the truth

 

They will never take me alive I tell you, Never Never.......

Never trust a railway modeller. We'll do anything to fund the hobby! :-)

In that case maybe I should find a different hobby, as everyone knows I'm too sweet and innocent to do devious things like that :)
