Here's some more detailing, a chapel poster, unfortunately it's only as good as the DPI of the printer, but impossible to read with the naked eye anyway!


Oh! and a door knob and letter box.


After fitting that downpipe, the labourer was sacked :)

The drainpipes are made from 1.33mm styrene rod, the bottom cut at an angle and the same for the outlet which is glued on. The connecting pieces are thin wire just wrapped around and glued, the brackets, paper.

Incredible detail! What's the chisel like thing that you show in the photos?

I think those coal drams are excellent , i want to add some to the screens at the pit head of my model of Coegnant Colliery, could you help me with some sizes, such as the dia of the wheels and the guage of the track, i can get the size of the dram from the one outside the old council offices at Maesteg. Really like all you photos , i hope to get my colliery up to the standard of yours. Paul

Hi Paul,


I haven't got the sizes to hand, I made mine from an etched sheet that my brother had designed and ordered in, they don't actually run as the wheels are fixed., but I think N will serve.

If you want to find out more about the etched sheet..... (a lot easier than creating each one from scratch, especially the wheels) PM me and I can give you his email address.

First class modelling phil.c.

As I've said before who need locos or stock when work like this is around.
I could do with some posters like that, but computers & me are not friends.

Everyone of these houses look fantastic. I have scrolled up and down umpteen times and found something new and clever each time. Excellent work as usual Phil.

I'm loving the detail and variety in those back yards. Washing, bin bags, planted pots/chimney pots. Superb work. :D
