  1. Night time, and the undead walk again (even in 4mm scale!!)
  2. Halloween, anyone? My lad saw these Noch figures and I ended up buying them... excellent fun for today!... Down on the up platform, the local monks gather to commence their Halloween protection activities, and then a vampire hunter joined them... Then Dracula turned up on the down platform... It all got a bit feisty... Then the vampires decided to head into town on the lash, ignoring the COVID-19 restrictions and the glaring sunlight!

  4. Thanks Kevin, that's great, very helpful. Lovely work and photography as usual!!
  5. Hi Kevin, I think the plants are mainly MiniNatur? But do you recall where the lettuces/cabbages came from? And what did you use for the soil in the veg beds? They all look great!
  6. Hi, depending on how much you are looking for an accurate prototype and era, versus inspiration to justify some 'reduced distances' ... I can't help with an actual interchange. But if you are up for inspiration rather than accuracy, and ignoring the real distance and a steep hill between the tram terminus and the narrow gauge tramway - try "Bathford" village near Bath. Its a small village, one of many around the edge of Bath. The old Bath tram ran through Batheaston village and then onto the terminus in Bathford village, just by the mainline railway overbridge which went over the road.
  7. I like that idea, about putting a pic of a family member into a pic of one's layout. I have plenty of deceased relatives I could try that with, but I guess finding a suitable image would be a challenge. I don't have any, that I'm aware of, which are railway related to use as an inspiration like you have done here. On a similar tack though, I did try putting a picture of my son into a video I took of the layout early on during lockdown. It was really basic because I don't have the tech really, but he thought it was hilarious, seeing himself in a video of the model railway which he was sitti
  8. Yes, I think so. I got my 2nd batch of figures from them shortly before they changed their page to this placeholder. The delivery time was very good for the two orders I made, and very sensibly packaged up. Great service all around I thought. Again, no connection to them, just a happy customer.
  9. That all sounds good, glad you have a good system to work to. I steered away from aligning baseboards for my layout, with hindsight it might have been good, but such is life!
  10. I got some of these PMMStudios figures and dogs, and I like them. No association with the supplier, just a happy customer. Here are some of the first ones I got...
  11. Hi, I just spotted this article/thread/blog. I'll follow your build with interest. My limited layout is modular, but in my case it rests on a window sill. From my own experience, I'd mention two things that immediately sprang to mind when reading your entries... 1. Are you using the homebase pasting table type things? I've used those in the past and they seemed a bit flimsy. If you are using those, it might be worth thinking about bracing the actual tables. The layout modules might be heavy, and the tables may sag or collapse. 2. How are you joining the tra
  12. Another platform shot with the new figures, this time at dusk. Red dress still present.
  13. I forgot about this Modelu chap, the guard (with Tommy and Tony in the background)... The guard was about the first one I tried to do a face. And the boy figure is a classic 'fugly' character. They also were about the first I tried. Too much paint (which was a mix of Humbrol acrylic paints, not actually lifecolor), too thick, and not letting layers dry.
  14. Also, I was going for a more 'summer tan' look as the layout is loosely set in summer, so I think I was probably going for a browner rather than a winter pale face. Still a good point though, thanks, I'll have a go with the next lot
  15. Hi, thanks for the hint. I ended up using the various shades of 'flesh colour' in the Lifecolor set, some of which are definitely pale pink. The results are really a pretty experimental effort. I did have a go at trying to do highlights of lighter pink on noses/cheeks/foreheads, as I've read about online/in books, but in some cases they looked like really obvious brush work rather than an actual person, so I tried to reach a compromise finish. I now have some more figures to do, to help with improving and learning further. I also now have a 'OOOOO' brush for the detail, rather than the O
