  1. Hi like the look of your layout , and the buildings. Do you have more details on the construction of the buildings, and any more details of your track work? Look forward to seeing more Best Dave J
  2. Hi Steve, glad all good. I’m not sure what next to be honest, got lots of house diy to do, and I’d need quite a lot of motivation! TBH I’d love to make a model of the RAE Farnborough railway (I grew up round there) , or maybe Forcett Goods station in County Durham ? All the best Dave
  3. Hi Steve , hope you’re well ? They're on EBay -see below All the best Dave https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/123942864748 Sent from my iPhone
  4. So not quite finished with it ! Looking again at some of the pictures of the real place, there’s one of the area in front of the white silo, after the rail tracks have been lifted. There is a very distinctive, and by that stage quite beaten-up, yard lamp by the concrete pre-fab hut, with a lifebouy attached to it. So I’ve modelled that - a LED with its arms very gently curved around to create the oval-shaped frame in which the lamp sat, attached to a post which is copper tube. The tube acts as the negative line into the LED, with the positive soldered to an insulated wire fed through
  5. Tortoise and hare ? Slow and steady is good ! Your layout is looking great and I look forward to seeing more. Keep on keeping on !
  6. Wow!! Can you tell us a bit about how / what materials etc ?
  7. David : thank you, you’re very kind. I’m not sure about what’s next to be honest! Probably a break, a lot of new home diy to do. I’d love to build a model of the RAE Farnborough railway ( was a kid in and around Fleet and Farnborough) and would combine my love of trains and aircraft. Or maybe Forcett Goods Station on the old Darlington - Barnard Castle route. Thanks again for the comment Dave J
  8. A concluding update on work on Bole Quay. I think I’ve taken it about as far as I can, and indeed as I am motivated to. I’ve made a clamshell bucket, shown In photographs on the quayside when not attached to the crane to unload phosphates from visiting local coasters. It uses a 1:48 3D printed excavator bucket for the actual clamshells, which were then cut up and attached to some frames for the grab from plasticard, fine chain, and other bits and pieces. Also some ‘clutter’ added, around the garage, and the East Coast Shipping warehouse. And lastly some crates and
  9. After Simon aka Heacham so kindly shared photos of wagons on Boal Quay, I decided to try and model them. Photos of work in progress. It’s never easy for me to do a colour model of a black and white photo, but hopefully they’re not too far out. Still to await delivery of some waterslide number transfers. A question - does anyone know of a supplier of bespoke transfers - so I can get the ‘internal user Kings Lynn Harbour’ text blocks developed? Dave
  10. That’s very helpful specialist knowledge - thank you. I fear my curves may be even tighter than that !!!
  11. Many thanks Steve. I like that industrial / run-down look too. If I’m honest I think the curve might be too tight to be realistic - though I guess some docks did have amazingly right curves! It was necessary to make things fit - compromises, compromises ! All the best Dave
