    Evening Guys...... Just to say that I have ordered from Phoenix Paints....the required, dark / light stone and maroon for my adapted Bachmann bridge. This is scheduled to arrive early in the New Year, so as I am back in at the nursery immediately after Boxing Day this isn't going to be a problem. I am beginning to get my head around the required routing of the tubing and wire for the next stage of point control through the station itself....have a great week my dear friends. Will post as soon as I have further news on this bit of the layout. Regards always, Bob

    Hi.... Been a bit busy with one thing or another, mainly at the nursery what with Christmas stuff and all that, so layout has 'gone quiet' for now.....but will resume soon.... As an aside maybe I should alter my profile pic, as just for fun went through the questions on a friends phone app that 'calculated' what Disney character you would be...? Look what my personal traits lead us to.....! Quite happy really Regards always.... Bob

    Hi.... Will probably place an order for required paints from Precision Paints next week in readiness for final assembly and repainting in the near future. Will turn my attention to next phase of attaching control wires to the points across the station area, so that I can get the platforms formed up and in position....? Regards always... Bob

    Haa Haa Lez, I joined Scale 4 many months ago just for the superb magazine, the societies website for the information and hugely helpful advice provided.....sleep soundly my dear pal, your perfectly safe, I'm not venturing into those waters just yet a while....! Still...trying to obtain a closer fit on the roof Regards always Bob

    Evening Guys..... There's something very intriguing regarding this bridge I'm currently working on, seemingly it appears the more that I attempt to ensure a closer fit, and this is achieved, the further I want to make the marrying up even neater.....prior to this I would have been happy with the initial result and moved on...? I don't want to 'over egg the pudding' as it were by getting as neat a fit as I can now without relying too much on filling any gaps later but really feel that I've gained something positive from this process? Nearly there and closer to a stage where I can consider painting, Regards always, Bob

    Cheers Lez...... Indeed yes, thank you for the initial suggestion to have a single span across the three platforms....have gained a greater understanding of modelling as a result and a feeling that everything doesn't need used as they come straight out of the box? Have agood week..... Regards always. Bob

    Thanks Chris..... I'm amazed I have the courage to start hacking away at something to fashion it into something else! Cheers for all the kind comments.....I am going to attempt to join the two together (when the appropriate epoxy glue has been purchased) next when I've completed the final filing , then the joins will have to be filled, finally painted up.....but that may be some way down the line as I'll have to start connecting the remaining points to te wire control, so I'm going to have to regain the practice of wire in tube....! Have a good week..... Regards always... Bob

    Evening Guys.... Hope that your respective weekends have been good and everyone is well....? Have added the extra 'windscreen' pieces to the end steps at the top of the landings, forming these from small squares of plasticard...cannot insert the central landing piece until the bridge is joined together. Regards always..... Bob

    Hi Another muse for you regarding the bridge.... Taking inspiration from Wiggoforgolds wonderful work on Yalerton....thinking of adding wind screens to the corners of the bridge landings at the top of the steps, that were seen on many GWR examples.....? Wiggo's build below... Perhaps adding plasticard here to mine...? Just a thought...quite like the effect personally and makes design sense...? Regards always, Bob
