I can see a pig, a dalek, and a teddy-bear, but not one solitary sheep!

 

I am saddened, truly...

Here you go - today at Little Sodbury Hill Fort. I saw this and thought of NHY 581 instantly...

That's definitely a "Wot ewe lookin' at?"  expression on it's face. 

File for future use...

Would a 1st radius curve fit on the end of Sheep Dip, to extend the FY over the new workbench?

 Evening Stu. 

 

Its a tad tight so I've not tried. The 'fiddle yard' is only a foot long, at best 31cm from back of layout to wall.........mmmm...........

Evening all. 

 

I have finished off the Room of Doom today by adding a small table. This is a recycled IKEA coffee table, deconstructed and adapted to provide a little work station desk. It also provides a useful perch from which to operate Sheep Dip. By the same token, the back of the chair provides a useful support when standing to operate Bleat Wharf.

In other news, another small building has arrived for Woolney. Its from the Bachmann Pendon range, a grotty hut. Clearly this will benefit from a smidge of weathering.....

A couple of strategically-placed mirrors and you could drive the whole lot while lying in bed.

Your new shed reminds me of this one I pinched off the "Little things" thread.

 

I don't think that there's been any chickens in this one for a while either...

Particularly useful, I would have thought.

Please Sir, just love the Teddy hiding under the layout-what's his name?

 

Well spotted Tim. 

 

That is in fact.....Ted. My companion for the last 56 years and still providing a sympathetic ear and advice when needed. He is accompanied by Snowy, a smaller bear just out of sight. Snowy has looked after me for as long as Ted has.
