Today saw the official start of Operation Mirror Image - from now on, I will add a tally of the time spent and how it was spent (as seen below) for the following posts. So at last, the extension is firmly on its way. The ply will be braced with softwood battens underneath and I will need to make sure I match the board heights correctly. I'm expecting that I will need a new backscene too, but I will cross that bridge when I get to it!
Thanks for all your support, it really is highly appreciated - if you have any suggestions or good/bad comments feel free to say them. Oh yes, and the NG diesel shunter is coming on nicely, thanks to a suggestion made, I've cut off the front handrails to anglicize it further:
So moving on, here is the latest:
Total time spent so far: 1 hour (0.5hr mock up + 0.5hr cutting baseboard top)
As I said in a previous entry, the layout has to be finished by the 29th April! Looks like more speed-building is needed.
