I need to do 2 island platforms of about 8'ish, a single one about the same, an island of 7' or so and a thin, single platform of about 4'6". This method should make things a hell of a lot easier
I think that you should go with scalescenes as for Â£3.99 you can get unlimited stations. You can even make them to the size you want. I will probably make mine thinner than the hornby ones if i ever buy them to save space
strip wood; Â£12
paint, nails and glue; pennies
brick print-outs; price of printer ink
having retroman think you've done a lovely job...
so instead of a little over Â£15 its Â£3.99!
