  1. Nell has a convincing look, and very blue. Did I read something on here that blue was a difficult colour in terms of longevity?
  2. Pipes truly wuthered, it was a little brisk around the back of the choir stalls! please do drop in early, name a week and time, would love to see you!
  3. im assuming you have seen the Monte Darlo posters in the art shop... very nice they are too! You do, but I know it is in safe hands, and it won’t get much use here for a while... I have given in to the large scale temptation. Except- you have to model everything - argh. I’m in Monday’s as the small human is off scouting. The kettle is usually on! love how the Beck usually looks. I’m off to play t’organ in a church with a big hole in it where a parishioner tried some ad hoc redesign work with her car. Fortunately no injuries, but it is a little parky!
  4. hope the wuthering recedes, I believe you can get an ointment for it. Let us know if we can get you help from the “big lights” ... or at least a cuppa if you are down this way - would love to catch up. I have a small stone engine shed going begging if you can find a space, too.
  5. Enjoyed getting back in with all of this- been a break from modelling for a variety of reasons, but back on with some more pre-grouping, or rather never-grouped... a rather nice 16mm model of a Victorian bogie coach from the Ffestiniog - no idea where it will fit on any layouts currently owned... so thank you for the kick in the pants to get me back working!
  6. I like it, I wants it... although might be a bit of a challenge for our rather incredible pianist to render the entire orchestral part alone!
  7. In response to this, having come late to t’thread... I have a choir named Sans Pareil; based near Darlington... a few years back we worked with Making Music and BBC radio 3 and a composer. He was fascinated by our name, and set the rainhill rules and regulations to music. I can confirm that they do not lend themselves immediately to being sung, but the project was interesting and exciting! The music was in 5 movements, named after the 5 main protagonists. Memories return... nurse, the sedatives!
  8. Can always visit Thornaby.... with apologies to the denizens of said metropolis
  9. A fairly down-and-dirty kitbash of the metcalf stone cottages to produce a village shop for my son’s Lake District based layout. Shop is based on the fantastic co-op in Chapel Stile. The windows are lit from above and sport this seasons fashions and some housewares felt this was worth showing as it is an easy first step towards scratch building- the metcalf kits go together a treat! The different colour stones’ tones are an attempt to vary the stonework with felt pens, I might do the whole thing tbh as the original building is much darker slate edit to show evening in his little world
  10. Externally finished, I think, other than bedding in a bit around the base, but needs some internal lighting and clutter. Maybe a vent on the roof as it is a loco shed would be a good idea! Want a fancy one, just because - any suggestions? A little coaling stage and water crane should finish the loco servicing area nicely. No space for anything chunky, looking at how tight the shed door is!
  11. With paint and daylight. Avoiding tiling the roof again... intend to to put a fair amount of internal clutter, too...
  12. Thanks, Jerry, yes. Mounting board, card overlays, superglue. Used my silhouette cutter because I’m lazy, though!
  13. Water tower, windows and inside walls. Windows are printed on acetate, which was ok, but a little transparent, so I have glued one sheet over another with superglue. Might go cloudy, but I bet they don’t often clean them...
