A very good BH Monday afternoon to you all,

Yes, you did read that right...now that Kyle is near completition (bar some additions to the rolling stock) my thoughts turned to my next project. I had assumed I would drop straight into 7mm but perhaps I will hold off a little longer as there is unfinished business to attend to ;)

Seeing Graham's recent terr...

Good evening all,

Readers of a nervous disposition may wish to advert their eyes now...no rolling stock has been harmed in the coming update :no: but layouts have been :O

Since the BH 2013 exhibition I have been relatively quiet on the forum for a number of reasons: post exhibition blues (is it just me?) stupid hours at work, general loss of interest in...

Update

Whilst there is a flurry of activity on Paddock Wood at present, this is a small update to show that work is continuing on CJ-M albeit at a slower pace.

The last entry which covered some of the recent detailing of the Moorswater buildings touched on some other works, namely the buildings to the adjacent area. This has changed of recent since...

My fellow Americans :O

Whilst a little more detailing progress has taken place the last few days, I will wait until I return from the UK to add a blog entry to cover those.

Meanwhile, when I first found and joined the RMweb (circa 2009 I think) my very first entry to introduce myself and the layout gave a link to a freebie website that I had...

Good evening,

An update on progress of late. I have still trying to tackle some of those smallish bits and pieces I have been putting off but once I got stuck in I kind of enjoyed it. It began with completing the lining to the clay settling tanks in white plasticard and I can now think about how to best try and represent the clay...I'm currently...

Update - Good evening,

Work has continued on the inset track area sanding, painting etc etc but to give myself a break from it I decided to start painting the roof of both dries buildings.

Working from a mix of photos of how they used to be late in the late 70's and also from now(ish) I have applied some base colour over the grey primer that was.

Update - Those familiar with my efforts know that my blog entries usually fall into two categories: :yes: or :no:

Unfortunately...this one is the latter...

Following progress with the base layer of the scenics last reported, I felt it was really time to tackle what I had been avoiding...that being get some trains running again in the dries area on the...

Update

The Prisoner has ESCAPED :O

By popular request...or perhaps the last dose of comments :P I decided to remove the white balls. They have served their purpose but its fair to say they were stunting progress a tad.

So to help move things forward I have started the scenics. Beginning with sloshing around a bit of grey paint to see where the road is....

...since I last updated...

Despite having a very severe attack of 7mmitus this last month, I have not lost focus on trying to make some progress on CJM this year.

Various small things have been tackled...all of which individually I had been putting off, so I decided to bite the bullet and get stuck in with them.

1 - I have permanently glued the two main...

Update - It's been a strange time of late...

The following tale of woe's hopefully describes what's been happening here in sunny economic disaster ridden Spain.

Having remade the mini sliding traverser beneath the dries covered area which serves as the loco release, this was wired with a very Heath Robinson kind of affair, which...
