So, a cakebox.
I fancied doing something different - lots of people are following the traditional route of modelling a scene of a railway, or fields, but I have yet to see one quite like the ones I'm planning.
This is my first idea, roughly laid out (to scale) to check that it will possibly work:
It just so happens that (I don't know the scale!) an LBSCR Class A1 Cab can be made to fit the 8" x 8" x 6" envelope, albeit with a very tiny amount of compression width-ways. The plan will be to fully model at least three sides of the cab, perhaps all four (removable back) if I'm feeling ambitious. The walls will probably be foamboard and I will probably try and paint the outside in full IEG or Umber.
Whilst I was at it I also wanted to see if a coach compartment would work. This is a slightly compressed version of an LSWR Third Class Compartment (Taken from a photo of Brake Third No.1520).
So, my ideas. I don't think anyone has done ones like these, so I thought it was about time I made a thread and 'took' the ideas before anyone else did!
Your thoughts please, Ladies and Gentlemen...
