Congratulations on the new addition to the family!
I've spent about half an hour this evening reading through this thread, its superb!  Can i ask, I may have missed it earlier (sorry if i did) but how did you build the steelworks buildings - is it foamboard with some kind of covering?
Hi Mike... many thanks for the kind words
Some of the buildings are Walthers kits that have been modified and some are scratch built using ply wood covered in some lined plastic sheets that I obtained from my time in the RAF. They were used for packaging aircraft components.
The Walthers kits are very good, well detailed and easily modified, they're not cheap but got mine whilst on holiday in the US.

Cheers Jez


Thanks for that - i'll go on the hunt and have a look at Walthers!  Im thinking of building some out of foamboard and then putting a suitable covering over the top to resemble that steel cladding side that is quite popular.


Really do like what you've done with the layout - hope your carrying on with it!
