Cracking stuff, I do like that double under bridge section. Some mega structures as well.
I assume these are made from foam board ?
It reminds me of Andrew Fothergill's work which has been recently brought back to the surface.
Shame Photobucket screwed up the stills, at least the YouTube videos are still available.

Thanks Geoff

I’m the opposite, I like to sit and watch the trains. Unlike today, chasing the derailments!

Why don't you embed your images in this thread? Just get the bbcode from flickr and paste it here like this:

Hi

So on Flickr on my phone I select the photo I want, click on it, then I press the curvy arrow button then ‘copy link’

I then go here: https://tools.sportscard.trade/

Scroll down to ‘Get BB code for Flickr’ or something like that. Paste your photo link here and click ‘get code’. This will then generate the ‘BB code’ you need. I copy this and paste it into my forum post.

It’s a bit long winded but it works and it’s free.

Lovely modelling by the way. I really like how this is coming along.

Thanks
Dan

That you can attempt to do it on a phone is a bit of a miracle. I only ever look at websites on my phone, for working on them I see a tablet as a minimum, and even then it can be a bit risky, (ask Stainsacre, I think he may have forgiven me by now!)

The internet is really bad here but I get amazing 4G. So I end up doing most stuff on my phone just out of convenience. Otherwise I agree with you.

Thanks

To get the BBCode from Flickr, this is what you do:
1. open the photo in Flickr
2. click the 'Share Photo' icon in the bottom right - this opens a popup
3. click 'BBCode' link and select size - I use 'Large (1024 x 768)'
4. copy the link now displayed in the popup
5. simply paste it directly into your post
No need to use any other tool, and step 3 will be preselected for you next time you do step 2 on the next photo.

I appreciate it might be a challenge on a phone, but takes less than 5 seconds on a PC :D

Dan if your internet is bad, look at getting a 4G Internet dongle or tethering to your 4G phone. My wife's an examiner and there are times of the year when she has to be on line, whatever the complications. One year we were going to be staying in a converted signal box near of Appleby. We used a 3G dongle connecting via the mast in the village and it was far better than the owners ADSL service.
