One last call - Oh still in a rush, have to load the car safely
to set up tonight.

This is the part built for the exhibition, to have more grass laid during the show.
It also has some bare plastic showing my plasticard 5 bar gate construction.

This all has to be taken safely ......

If any NRM members get to Beaminster come and introduce yourselves.

Ahh yes, because of building work parking behind the hall is currently FREE.

I cannot believe another year has slid past.

And another great looking diorama sees the light of day.

Would love to see West Bay Geoff, but a bridge too far I fear! Have fun.

Hi and thanks Dave,

Farmer Topp's pond is a 'throw away' piece.

It cost me nothing except time, all the component parts
were in those spares/stock boxes. The de-mounted van
body was that free RM goodie, sand, grass, matchsticks,
nylon thread, and even the Aqua Magic was here just waiting
for an excuse to use again.

Mind you taking so many different sands and grass scatters is
almost as difficult as taking a layout.

As to the Aqua Magic, all 3 of these pieces have it, the airfield
(Fosdike Drove) having been made at the end of 2017. Still near
to half a bottle and no sign yet of it going off.

(Why Farmer Topp ? Back in the 1950's my parents used to keep
their caravan at Ted Topp's poultry farm. An old man like me
lives on a lifetimes store of memories)

Lysander, Of course I'll have fun - I always say "If it 'Aint fun, don't
do it" Remember those bridges are free now !!
