I had another idea for the ridge tiles.
Instead of using the tiny convex Linka tiles I thought it might be easier to use a long length of convex plastic and just mark it for the tile gaps.
Unfortunatly a visit to my local model shop left me bereft as they didn't have what I needed. Lots of beams and I-bars but no convex pieces.
This model shop never seems to have what I need off the shelf.
So instead I purchased the Ratio 420 GWR station fence and gates set for my current station building project and picked up the newest copy of The Railway Magazine Guide to Modelling (free paper). If you cannot get hold of a copy you can read it online here (lower down the page) - https://www.railwaymagazinemodelling.co.uk/june-2018/
I also popped into my local Oxfam (mainly books) and grabbed Historical Railway Modelling book by David Jenkinson for a measly £2.50.
There was also another book called Modellers guide to the GWR by T.J.Booth which I picked up but was almost sure I had it already so put it back again.
Just looking at my book collection...I don't.
But I may be slightly confused.
Is this book..
The same as this book?
As I do have the latter and it's by Trevor Booth.
Or are these 2 completely different books?
Nice to get out on the bike for a meander today though.
