As this appears to be being built in your living room, on the best table, I can only assume Em is working?

Good to see your making headroads though.

I'll spare you the humiliation of the standard NRMR... :wink:

Emma is in mate.

She's well impressed ;)

All done for this weekend as we have to be places, but here is the final update of a successful day of work (keeping in mind it was yesterday afternoon we started messing about with this...)

Two complete baseboards:


The two baseboards in line showing what run we have:


A better demonstration of the length (keeping in mind a massive tall sod, obviously before Bunji says anything)


The final working session brilliantly helped along by none other than Type O Negative:


Keep a look out for future work on this as we intend to get it moving onwards.

We have a pretty good idea on what we are going to be modelling. As for a trackplan we have near enough decided on a junction.


Not that long a run then really Rich :wink:

With the curtains drawn, presumably to keep out prying eyes…

This thread could be about to become dodgy :wink:

tying to think of a witty comment, but can't. Will looking good, but you both could do with a hair cut do?? :wink:

Yes, I was waiting for the haircut comments. :roll:

The curtains are shut because basically I just never thought to bother opening them..

It was bright enough in there and also I guess it does stop people walking by being nosey.

Danny is now safely tucked up at home and I've got a room to tidy up.

Mission fairly successful so far I think.

You know me Rich, I wanted to be the first.
I'm only jealous of the long flowing hair and wish I had some :wink:
