Apologies for the long lack of updates! :oops: There's been a long term and haven't really got much done! Hopefully though with the summer holidays approaching the amount done should rise significantly! :wink:
Updates and pictures :D will definitely follow somewhen between now and this time next week!
Thanks

Here are some photos:
The water tower is scalescenes Ro26 ( I'm about half way through so it's still work in progress
The Main station front has been mocked up to scale
Also the blasting has started although nothing is glued down yet!
As for a list of things to do this holiday:
1. Finish Water tower
2. Buy more balsa wood and complete overall roof station
3. Ballasting ( If I find the right size ballast to buy)
4. Build the various metcalfe kits ( e.g - The Inn)
I think that's it for now! :D
Regards

I like how its coming along! Ballast size I ended up using predominantly Woodland scenics fine. I had mixed in a bag of I think was a peco ballast as well but was the same size so I think thats a good size to buy or gauge off of.
