  1. I will post minute by minute update #pvagate
  2. Chris, Ace thanks, they look perfect despite the difference in scale. Giles
  3. Finally got onto painting etc. Guttering and downpipes are in, roofing and windows done, weathering largely done. Glazing and fine detailing to come. I need a couple of small lamps above the doorways - struggling to find anything that’s not LED, I don’t need ‘real’ lighting. Any suggestions? That’s now two of the three creamery buildings done. My first engine is arriving this week too! Giles
  4. Rod, it it was an unplanned visit to the show in amongst boring chores including looking for a new kitchen! Hope the surgery went well i’ll drop you a message. Giles
  5. I’m roofing... it’s taking an age... available for 1:1 commissions if your tiles need a fettle! Giles
  6. Update... inspiration running high after a visit to the Helston Railway and the Exeter show, I’ve knuckled down... Creamery reception siding building has a roof and barge boards, the intermediate loading dock is built with crinkly tin roof and weatherboarding. Ballasting and most of the foundation landscaping is done on this half of the layout and a tree has mysteriously shot up! Giles
  7. Update, holidays are helpful! After a day of Hymeks on the West Somerset I’ve started the first building in the creamery complex. Needs some fettling, a roof and a whole bunch of detailing but the structure is there...
  8. Not too bad, 10s of pence each, prices vary
  9. Production line of laser cut windows from LCut Creative for the creamery - waiting for building supplies to start construction proper... Giles
  10. I do love the phrase 'senior scale' with my eyesight I think i should have gone for Gauge 1
  11. Now with mocked up windows and doors... Giles
  12. Very well spent hour mocking up the creamery from cardboard box. PVA bottles will be the stainless steel tanks eventually. Need to live with this for a bit before building for real. First concreting done between the rails on the creamery siding - polyfilla, PVA and some N-gauge ballast mixed in - then back and forth scribing with a coffee stirrer template to clear the flangeway. Giles
  13. ‘spotters eye view. The halt is largely complete, amazing the difference a name board makes. Some further detailing to follow but need to crack on moving up the line, dairy complex next!
