Sh**e Martin,

I read the first few words and yes I've lost many friends recently, but not
to RMweb. Suppose that's the trouble of being one of the oldies.

I see mention of mumbles, he's currently 'Banned' at HIS request and if he
can remember his log-in I can easily open the door again.
Remember the rocket propelled Class 43 ?

Old Geoff?

VHS is old, steams trains are antique, Egyptians are ancient and you Geoff are prehistoric.

It looks terrific, love the non square box, comglomeration of odd shapes, makes it "real"
I know the secret to making styrene buildings that never warp! :o
But you're not getting it out of me! :twisted:

Oh lord, that is a terrific build mumbles. Why are there drainpipes running halfway up the roof? I can't work that out. :?:

That's realy quite accomplished work Martin, most impresive.

I'm curious about the drain pipes that go half-way up the roof - never seen that before.

It's a top secret that only professionals with 30 years experience of making models for Architects know!

I think that if the drain pipes were attached to 'foul' sewer lines, building regs demanded they had to extend more than 3 feet above windows, lying down on the roof looks less obtrusive then a 'chimney' sticking up at the front of the house. Same rule applies now, but they invented a vent valve that eliminates the need to go higher.

I am more concerned about the four foot drop when you walk out of the front door! :o

I have no idea about those pipes, they are on the real building.
This picture is newer then ones I'm basing my modelling on, but not changed much.

Only 1 person knows the secret to making styrene buildings that never warp and he took it to his grave and that was Johann Bessler
