  1. Quite a bit done over last couple of weeks, all the track is now down on the first board and I’ve started to solder on the droppers, once these are done and it’s all tested I’ll go to work on ballasting the track
  2. In the last week or so the first board has arrived so I’ve cut out the section for the pits and assembled the board itself. To get the rails the correct height as the sleepers an chairs I’ve had to add 1mm of plasticard to the underside of the pits, this I managed to finish this morning so hopefully I’ll get the pits fixed into position in the next day of two. I’ve also glued down the Templot for this board and fixed the sleepers into position, these are just in the process of being stained so hopefully some rails down soon.
  3. That’s worse than any of mine
  4. Slowly been cracking on with the depot office/stores block, starting with the two storey first. I’m using Slaters brick sheeting glued onto 5mm Foamex, I was going to carve the bricks but gave up!
  5. Thanks Andrew been working on the depot office/stores building lately do not much to show but I’ll try an take some pics of the plans once I think they’re good enough
  6. Thanks mate same here I need to convert the garage or at least insulate it but with working in sections a can hopefully work in the house a board at a time. I was going to have 3’ wide boards and just extend the width in certain places but I might see if I can use 2’ wide boards then just add a 1’ board to the back to make things easier etc. Not sure if your on fb but I’ve got a group set up on there covering the build to if your interested. cheers
  7. Thank you Jeff very much appreciated, I’ll try and get back into posting regular updates. maby thanks
  8. Thanks Mervyn don’t suppose you have any pics of 60’s steam cleaners do you
  9. Hi Mike how’s things? I’ll have to give you a ring sorry, house move is slowly easing off but I still need to get the garage boarded out properly. Apart from a few weathering jobs for a friend I’m not doing any more commissions as I just don’t have the time anymore. The jobs going great I’m now a qualified guard an I love it! An Rosa is nearly three now so things are getting easier, I’m currently planning the depot building as we speak. I’ll try an phone u in a day or two
  10. Thanks Clive I wanted it to look as close to the LMR as possible an the only way was to scratch build them, in pretty pleased to be honest how well they’ve turn out, I even added individual bolts! I’m crazy, thanks again though Clive I’ll try an upload a video later. cheers
  11. Slowly cracking on and the fuel pumps etc have been scratch built, some but have been adapted from a Peter Clark kit. Hoses have been scattered around to so next up will be to add barrels and other depot bits n bobs.
  12. Must be just the lighting mate, it’s nickel silver from C&L
