Not carried out any work on diorama to date rather been waiting for bits and pieces to arrive.
I think I mentioned on the main site that I am rejigging the railway room where I will be converting an underutilised wardrobe into a dedicated work area with it's own lighting and power.
The doors have been removed before someone comments about shutting and locking the doors........with me in it!!!!
The purpose for mentioning that is I had previously used it as a store so I've had a thorough tidy up a few days ago before starting and I was amazed at what I found stashed away for a rainy day......
First was this old Mainline ventilated van that will serve magnificently as the van at the centre of this model,
I have no idea how old this is but it's in pristine condition.
Then a whole box full of secondhand white metal odds and ends brought from many, many secondhand stalls at exhibitions over the years and in amongst them this kit!!!!
The bag it came in had a price of £4.50 on it........rather a bargain I think as I do believe this currently retails at nearly £22.
I have absolutely no idea where or when or even why I brought this at the time but luckily for me I did - more importantly I found it before I brought another one!!!
Well that was the end of my fines for this diorama so I ordered some more bits from Dart Castings which arrived today
A selection of Porters
Not sure which two I will use or how I will alter them but the other two will then be used on Little Muddle.
Two headless horses arrived......as you do?
These are the Suffolk Punch breed so they should look the part.
If not I can always use them to cut the grass.....!!!!....????
Why have I brought these two when three are already included in the cart (sorry Lorry?) pack.
It is based on something I picked up from Mikkel's site 'The Farthing Layout' about the size of the Langley Model horses.
So, just like as on his website here are my picture to show the size difference.....
No prizes for guessing which is which.
