The use of card is simply brilliant and the layout will I'm sure be a wonder! Looking forward to the "how to" series! Thanks for the photos.

Hello Jim,

Your right about the Pilling Pig I Googled it and there's an immaculate Hudswell Clark outside a holiday camp place with the name on it. Keeping the memory alive.

Hello Dave

Thanks for the nice comment, it's going to be some time before I get around to making my Y8 loco and a new wagon. I starting a new bit of the backscene though.


Hello all,

I put a bit more sky in, altered the perspective and made a part wooden part corrugated fence to go in front of it.

Image
Next I am going to make a loco shed, it'll be where the loco is and it will house the loco release/run around traverser.

I'll be needing some more and slightly different brick paper. This is what I started with it's a building in Sheffield that I photographed some years ago.

Image
It's actually twice the height of the photograph, I worked out the brick size in the image and the he new image was too short so I added to it to make it 150mm high.

After that I had to get rid of the pillars and the stuff at the bottom.

Image
And ended up with some new brickpaper.

Cheers - Jim
I try to make as much as I can myself'

Hello Dave,

Nice of you to suggest selling it.
I just like making stuff though.
All anyone would need to do it themselves would be a camera or phone and any version of Photoshop from Ps4 (1994) onwards.
