hello Paul , let me know the sizes as i'm not a 7mm man ! so i'm guessing at about 140mm long (20ft) 55mm wide (7ft 9") and varying heights ? or there abouts . Look forward to Shangi Laa in January , keep in touch

I'm trying to get get Graham Mann to come up with a name for the new layout, as it will be attending the Pontypridd MRC Show in April too. The name I have been given so far is unprintable so a working party has been set up to come up with something more appropriate!

Please accept my humble apologies; I've still to master the art of cutting and pasting from one document to another, then to a forum.

 

I've now amended the list of layouts.

Hi Brian, will there be plenty of hot tea on the day? I've just bought this month's BRM and whilst browsing through I found Rosamund St and then turned the page...........meet the modeller! 

 

Great to see it in print again though.

Thank you Tony.

.

Tonight I will mostly be quaffing some vino tinto, listening to the football (on the wireless !), reading my own publicity and contemplating 'Son of Rosamund Street'

.

The idea behind the next project may be apparent in the photo.

.

Regards

 

Brian
