Short update.

 

Layout now has a permanent home in my bedroom, spend the last couple of weeks getting some shelving put up to allow me to store the layout, without stealing floor space. Also been filling and sanding the board tops ready for applying the Templot plan, which I'm happy to say has concluded today.\

Please excuse the photo, the light was failing and my room is a lot tidier than it looks from this angle, but I really do need to sort out the work bench and the stock shelf. Plus I really should get around to re-decorating... As you can see, i was having a quick play with the Bachy 47, one of my recent P4 conversions on Ultrascales. Has been stripped and needs repainting once i've finished adjusting the cab windows.

 

Anyway, the plan is all firmly in position ready for track laying over the next few weeks. Although the middle board will be coming with me to Exeter 2010 show, so i'm resisting the urge to lay all the track on the board, lest I have nothing to do at the show.

Again, please excuse the photography, as the light was failing. The above shows the C10 LH for entering the yard, with a Mk1 BG for scale. I really do love big point work, the smallest point on the layout is an A7 for the TTA siding.

 

Next update should be post the Exeter show, if you coming along, please stop by to say hello.

Back on topic ;)...I recall your last post with interest - not often that you see parcels modelled so that with a bit of BR Blue thrown in sounds terrific - did the templot change much from the last post or just tweaking?

Sorry I didn't see this comment earlier. The Templot plan pretty much stayed the same, with a lot of tweaking of the positions of Templates, I spent a great deal of time sketching out the plan, and generally thinking it all through. It's not ideal, due to the space constraints of the 2010 challenge, had I not stuck to the rules I'd have made the plan with a slight curve. But as I like to reiterate, this is really a glorified plank, a test bed for a lot of things to come later in my modeling career.
