  1. Some update pictures. The Sailors institute . Pleased with this as its the first bit of scratch building I've done in many years. Making the most of Will's building sheets . The sea is the tried and tested toilet paper and pva method . Still loads to do . Thanks for looking in , Kev
  2. Thanks for the photos Scooby. As always , any pictures and or coments are most welcome .
  3. Good morning all . After a site visit , Ive mannaged to do a bit of work on the layout over the last couple of weeks . Ive started a extension , this will form the 'other bridge' and part of the harbor. I will post some pictures when I get chance. Thanks for looking in .
  4. Hi all. Just a quick update. The layout is still work in progress , still working on it . Havnt had a lot of time lately , but will be doing a bit when I can . Thanks for looking in .
  5. Not wanting to sound like a tight fisted old Scrooge, but why are Dogfish ballast wagons so expensive? I've been looking for a pair for my layout for a while now , but can't really justify to myself the cost of these as it amounts to the same as a second hand loco !! Am I missing something here?? Cheers , Kev
  6. Nothing wrong with day dreams , mad or otherwise I've never personally ventured into O gauge . I think I've been put off by cost and space needed to have a layout (obvious really) Just build it in any scale and use the memories as the excuse Cheers
  7. Hi PJ . I would love to see this come to life .... One day We used to holiday in the area as kids (late 70's / early 90's) and as you say , I also have very fond memories. That's one of reasons I started my layout. I'm considering a small plank based on Talybont (very early stages of planing) A great part of the network to model. All the best , Kev
  8. Morning Andy . Looking forward to seeing the latest chapter develop. All the best mate , Kev
  9. Thanks for that JZ . At the moment I'm kind of modelling a mix of old ,new and whatever looks best to the eye .cheers
  10. A little bit of work on the tunnel mouth and retaining wall this morning. Nothing is fixed in permanent yet but its given me more of an idea how this end will look . Thanks for looking in . Kev
  11. Hi all . Not much progress on the layout lately. I seem to have hit anoter brick wall (and it's been too hot) However , I have managed a 'site visit' So now I have a lot of photos of the tunnel mouth and the old toll house . Apologies for the quality of the photo off laptop :/ Im now wondering if I should make the tunnel mouth and retaining wall out of Wills sheets or have a go at scribing some plasticard . Any suggestions on a supplier for the rail/fence on the top of the wall ?? Thanks for dropping by. All the best, Kev
  12. That's a absolute master piece Peter . I wish I had the skills with plastic that you have . I originally started to make the bridge on my layout out of plastic strip but soon realised I wasn't going to be able to make anything presentable. Most of the early attempts ended up either stuck to my fingers or the work bench or both Keep up the excellent work and please keep us all up to date with the progress. All the best with your hospital visits , Kev
  13. I can't wait for the next one , I'm sure it'll be a great source of inspiration (like all your other work) Keep us posted please Andy All the best , Kev
  14. Hello all . Sorry about the lack of updates of late , seem to be letting life get in the way a bit oh well , it happens . I've been driving through Barmouth this week on my way to work up the coast in Harlech. I was hoping for either a nice bright morning or evening to get some pics . But no ! The weather so far has been rubbish . Thanks for all the comments, I do find them helpful and an inspiration when I no I should be doing some work on the layout Cheers , Kev
  15. Congratulations too you both all the best , Kev
