Evening all

I've applied the first coat of paint to the rig, i must say it makes a whole lot of difference!

I may need to buy some more paint!

Evening everybody!

Tonight i've got the rest of the fiddle yard wired (inc making the three-way work!) and painted. So now i have one of the thee boards ready for TINGS
Image

And one with a few items of stock on it :P
Image

I've also re-done some of the grass as i thought the colour originally used was a tad too light. (Yes i know there is an autocoach on the roof!)
Image

This one shows a comparison between original (from trackside up to fence) and new (from fence to backscene)
Image

The TINGS clock is ticking....

Hi Paul,

The lack of posts is due to me not using this forum anymore (only using today because i got notification of your post). All further updates can be viewed on N Gauge Forum http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index ... pic=24.210

Well done Ollie on not only getting your article in the September Railway Modeller, but following up on Steve Flint's editorial about perceived ageism in railway modelling.
