The tree between the two tracks is a rather bright green that I'm not sure I like. However, I did not have anything better in stock - or so I thought. Yesterday I went into a long-disregarded box in t ...

This cottage, my first cast-plaster model, was discovered in a junk box last year. It was missing some masonry in one corner, but was nicely painted. I've had to cut the rear wall off to fit its new s ...

Spent a couple of hours adding the backscene at the Bridgnorth end of the station and roughing in the landscape contours. Hardshell goes on tomorrow, hopefully. Tried the taller trees out, as well. Th ...

The WCs are almost finished, just need a touch-up on the dark paint, although I've nearly run out of that colour. Also made a start on the station's name boards.

It's strange how a small alteration can make a huge difference. I've been working on the Gents' for some days, as it just didn't look right. I tried different paint schemes, cladding over the stone ba ...

Liking the new open look to at CdP, Bob, plus the new cliff beside the turntable. I see you've been upsetting the collectors again, though, cutting up old Tri-and loco sheds Wink
