Please excuse the bright pretty colours and the slight fuzziness, using my old camera phone while my folks enjoy a few days in Devon with my kodak..

all foamy bits ready to glue in place and paint a mildly less 'balamory' style ground colour with enamels, got a nice mucky brown/grey/ochre type mix prepared for that job this evening.

What a simply fabulous idea (I see what you mean that there was one good thing the drinking gave you). I can't wait to see how this one develops! I must say that names are rather good, and my what pretty colours... although it is making my eyes go a bit funny! :shock:

Cheers,

Stuart

I think you should keep the colours and paint your trains the same - kids would love it :)
(and probably others on a certain 'wavelength' too :wink: )

nice br'r'r'ooon colour where there was orrible bright colours, the pva used to seal the foam should prevent too much warpage from the enamel that has gone down, but am currently keeping an eye on it, whilst typing this.. modelling 'Live' ..howzabout that then? :D

Nice looking layout, personally I preferred the first track plan, but that's just me. Don't like circles! Looking like it will be up to your usual high standards. 8)

Not sure about my usual standards, i've struggled to complete anything of my own for years, but so far this is going good. Lidford, funnily enough, is going to be a country stile terminus of some kind, so i have the best of both roundy-roundy-round-it-goes and a nice 'sensiblish' station to feed onto and off of the loopy line. it'll become clearer as it develops hopefully. :D

thanks peops

Last update of the day/early morning.. hadn't noticed the time! :shock:

Gave some of my stock a quick look at, does seem odd, it being inside a suitcase though? ..thinking on ways to put in a mini backdrop and maybe some very low relief structures. I have a plan to cover the blue outcrop in the bottom left hand corner there (it's the wheel arch for the wheels on the suitcase, may come in handy at some point) involving a building to cover it, say a factory type building or something. The track isn't set in place just yet, as i've made allowances for a couple of point motors, but they also have a question mark over them at this point, as i'm not sure i can be arsed with them? :lol: but the option is there at least.

Terrier, you could have replied there with the pun of "case closed for now!"






Okay, I'll leave!

I guess you could say it's a case of life getting in the way.

:lol: Don't panic Kenny, they're all awful :lol: :lol:

This project has been kind of on the go for the better part of 2 years now, i wonder what it feels like to complete or get there with a model layout sometimes. :| :lol:
