  3. I hadn't though it could be difficult as the main movement is on and off the trains or into storage. I am buying cars from the 60s too. This will allow me to to do different periods at different shows. The tooling plant is now painted up. Just got to make the large windows to fill the hole you see. Looking a bit more like now.
  4. Now onto one of the final big buildings on the layout which is probably the most recognisable of them all I had already built the foamex section so now it's time for cladding and the different layers of paint. I had to cut out a hole to illuminate the sign. I also re purposed some Dapol windows for the upstairs locker/ mess area. For the I had to build a sign which along with being 3d wanted to be back lit. I wanted to emulate strip lamps behind so I cut it out as seen in the photos. I will then mount an LED at the back to illuminate it and the internals of the building.
  5. Hi Steve, recently there have been a few off the shelf models ( Manchester ship canal peckett, w.t.t . Barclay) that have been close to fords colour green used in the 50s to early 70s, this has meant it's just been a case of logo removal and transfers. The 04 in the 80s colours was a body off repaint and transfers.
  6. So been a while but got quite a bit done. Had a change if heart on the track work at the front and decided more storage yard was required. So that came up and then been on buildings which are loosely based on the stamping plant and wheel shop. Buildings are constructed out of foamex, then layered with plastikard. Put the 70s/ 80s cars for a check on the numbers. I also plan to be able to change the cars for 1960s vehicles to ensure variety at different shows. Anyway on with the pictures.
  7. Enjoyed seeing you there today. Here's a couple of my pics.
  8. Slightly in the wrong order, but here you can see the baseboard after the track has been airbrushed and the board painted to prevent anything showing through. Also seen is a Hornby Pecket waiting at the signal.
  9. Been busy on the baseboard over the last week, ballast and surfaces down. Lights on but not yet working. Afraid I couldn't help but see how some of the cars looked in place.
  10. Unfortunately I'm not one for drawing out or planning much on paper and its mostly in my head initially. So I have cracked on with the track laying and so the 'track plan's is the actual track! I have illustrated the buildings on it to. Its 4ft by 2ft, all the droppers are currently awaiting connection to the control panel/ supply.
