I can see that a lot of wisdom has been exchanged on this thread this morning.

 

I doubt that I can really add much to that.

 

Chris - I will provisionally and on a temporarily impermanent basis, consider the possible reinstatement of your name of the list of semi-urgent actions accorded to one of the Assistant Deputy Chief Supervisors, with regards to his (or her) next meeting, whereby he (or she) will chair a discussion on the composition of the Christmas Card List.

 

I thought you were sending out parsnips again this year CK?

I cannot confirm, or deny, that I would or would not do either, neither or both of these or any other actions!

Edited for clarity.

Indeed.

 

In the meantime, someone has either attached a camera to his balsa wood glider or has climbed a tree in the style of Ben Ashworth:

Morning CK. 

 

That is simply delightful. How very nice indeed.

A lovely scene Tim and those steps and handrail are rather splendid. Can you describe how you made them please.

Thanks Robin.

 

The handrail consists of three pieces of 0.4mm brass wire, soldered together at the angles shown, with the two vertical pieces then glued into two corresponding holes in the baseboard. The handrail was painted (track colour type brown) before being planted.

Oh, sorry!

 

The steps are plasticard, with stonework scribed on them. I should reiterate what I said at the beginning of this thread, that the goods shed was not built by me, but by Paul Iliff (who built layouts like 'Evenstow'). He sold a lot of 4mm items when he went up to 7mm scale a few years ago.

 

As such, the steps have been 'extended' by me, as the originals weren't tall enough to reach the goods shed office door! My 'extension' is largely (deliberately) hidden by the foliage, but was also made of plasticard and an attempt made to vaguely match the stone colour.

If that's a "vague attempt" then you have certainly achieved it to my eyes. Very good match to Pauls work.

Love those last set of photo's. The level of detail is superb, nothing is overdone, the weathering is great and everything comes together to create a very convincing scene, great stuff! :)

Well observed, well executed, subtle. 
Very, very nice.

This is all rather impressive, the whole scene just comes together so well. I'm probably going to ruffle some feathers here, but I really can't tell it's 00 track either (rather than EM/P4).
