Re: Terrier's Shed №2

Fairly sure my grandad did some time on Flower class Corvettes, in between minesweepers (dicey!) and armed trawlers (mega-dicey!) that is. Enjoy the build mate!

Re: Goatbridge, N.Yorks- Ballasting boredom...

More scenery this week. The car park has its first occupants http://i819.photobucket.com/albums/zz117/Blue2MGB/Rail%20stuff/IMAG0384_zps841133a1.jpg More ballast has been laid, and the corrugated iron I created has come in useful for a small shelter http://i819.photobucket.com/albums/zz117/Blue2MGB/...

Re: Goatbridge, N.Yorks- To The Pub!

Seeing as the NRM tour coach is heading my way imminently I thought I'd best get on with some scenic work, specially round the station area. I HATE ballasting, yet there was much to be done. So up early on Saturday, to get it done and out of the way. http://i819.photobucket.com/albums/zz117/Blue2MGB...

Re: Goatbridge, N.Yorks- To The Pub!

Exactly the sort of pub I like Bufferstop! :D The courtyard I couldn't make any bigger, it's on the base of 2 standard issue Metcalfe pubs already! I may use the the bit outside for a couple of the cars and some support gear etc. But the mock-up of sticking the minis in the courtyard proves it'll wo...

Re: Goatbridge, N.Yorks- Class 20 restored!

It's mostly been about the pub this weekend. Not the full size one (although a pint or 2 was consumed in York on Saturday!) but the second of Goatbridge's pubs. I was given a built Metcalfe pub by Jas, and then within a week or so an unbuilt kit of the same building! I obviously can't stick 2 identi...

Re: Goatbridge, N.Yorks- Class 20 restored!

Cheers chaps! Especially Jas for the freight and the wreckage of the 20.
Mr Court, when you're ready get them sent over. Bear in mind I'm away for a week early in May, so i'll not be able to get on with them too quickly.
Jas, enjoy painting that little lot mate! They really take the acrylics well.
