Excellent - a really good edition of the magazine, thank you.  The presentation of the layout articles and photos stand out for me as being as good as those in many books I’ve seen (and far less expensive).  Well done all, Keith.

Just watched the accompanying BRM TV for July and Phil Parker’s demonstration of lettering and numbering wagons using a mapping pen and white ink, which has inspired me to get hold of a mapping pen and white link and have a go.


I especially liked his comments on rivet counting and being satisfied when a model looks right.  Perhaps there’s a lesson there for those on RMWeb who can’t get no satisfaction.
