  1. It may have been mentioned elsewhere on the forum already - but it looks like Photobucket have realised the error of their ways, changed management, and are offering a very reasonable deal to users. I've paid a £15.00 annual subscription to have my picture links to third-parties restored I am very happy tonight to see my thread fully illustrated again Meanwhile, just to pre-empt questions about Frankland: I did say when I moved it would be a couple of years before I'd be in a position to start planning next-steps - and it's still only 14 months since then - so please be patient.
  2. Hello Mikkel, As always, wonderfully studied. Your posts entrance and inspire me. You capture perfectly and bring to life our collective memory of the grainy, faded Victorian photographs of perceived halycon days, and the details and characters within them that often catch our attention. Absolutely sublime! Mark
  3. Nice work Geoff: Some fine detail in there - and anything 'birdcage' always catches my attention - it's so characteristic of a certain era and makes for a distinctive item of stock.
  4. First time I've seen this - looking good
  5. Nice work as always Grahame, Out of interest, what have you used for the corbels? Thanks, Mark
  6. Absolutely exquisite and sublime Mikkel: You present a certain dreamlike / collective memory / quality / to your portrayals / which is so edifyingly delightful. I always feel a sense of delight and excitement whenever I click on a link to one of your updates
  7. My apologies - may I provide an interlude to keep you entertained in the meantime?
  8. I agree, a lovely film, and especially the double-deck carriages, never quite seen anything like them before. Quite delightful. Good luck with the layout Doric.
  9. Really impressive work on many levels Mikkel, you must feel a great sense of achievement.

    Love what's coming along here - particularly interested in the methods of operating signals and bus.
  11. Every single one of these buildings you're modelling Grahame is delightfully idiosyncratic - you capture their essence perfectly. It's a delight to watch your work unfold - plus each post is helpfully instructive. I can't wait to see details revealed of the layout on which they will eventually sit
  12. I'll be particularly interested in the first as I have a connection with the 'Dead Line' as they call it. Thanks for flagging - I'll catch up with both of those at the weekend.
  13. Just been catching up on the last few months of posts and I can only echo the compliments above - some exemplary modelling - especially the the characterful buildings. Really impressive all round.
  14. I don't know how you do this sort of work in 20 minute shifts - it takes me that long just to warm-up! Either way, wonderfully observed and so painstakingly reproduced to convincing effect. Inspirational as always
  15. Loved the video - a great eye for angles / framing. Delightful and completely entrancing.
