Finally started to cut metal for this challenge, well plastic if you want to be pedantic, and 1800 cuts to be precise.
I walked away from the Wigan show with various goodies from Exactoscale. So the few spare minutes over Christmas was spent cutting various chairs from sprues, fortunately I remembered on the third sprue that the keys were handed, 5 left and 5 right. So 1500 std chairs, 200 bridge chairs and 100 slide chairs later I have this to show for my efforts.
I really think that Exactoscale ought to have a green recycling policy considering the amount of scrap from the sprues.
As Tewkesbury MPD ballasting is erratic, more just ash judging by the photos, many of the sleepers are quite exposed. So I've opted for the full depth wooden sleepers from Perfect Miniatures rather than the Exactoscale sleepers. So this week will be a quick test on staining them and ash ballast.
