Following on from my 1st Cakebox Diorama Hawkins Indiana.

https://www.world-of-railways.co.uk/brm/information/brm-cake-box-challenge-hawkins-indiana

I starting a 2nd one Cabbage Brewery. Again using the popular culture reference of Discworld this time. I'm using alot of structure from my older Christmas layout which feature on Carl's Micro Layouts website. The main structure used are a plastercast maltings which is getting converted into the Brewery. A Dapol Inn half converstion and 2 children toy house been convert into a 2 storyshop & house plus a Copperage for the Brewery. I also raiding the spare parts bid for walls doors etc.

Again I putting the thread on RMWEB.

I love Discworld (and breweries, or at least their products), the illustrations on the covers of Pratchett's books have some wonderfully eccentric looking buildings in them, very tempting to model. Hugh Norwood's "Angst Lesspork" is a wonderful take of the theme in OO9.

Maybe a copy of Bradshaw's handbook would be useful?
Mrs Bradshaw that is. Laughing

It's not easy navigating RMweb (unless logged in to follow "Show New Content") though, so any chance of a link to the thread when it's up and running please Ian?

Bob thats my plan, but RM Web is down at moment when normal services resumes I'll post the links.

Meanwhile I've been working on the Brewery buildings, the main one is from the plastercast building, made by a local Model Shop here in Ipswich a few years ago. It getting a new loading door & platform overhead lift with covered section. The Stables are been kitbashed out of parts from Airfix Waterloo Farmhouse out buildings, Willis walls & tile sheet.

It good doing something a little outside my usual interest.

Angst-Lesspork - what a wonderful take on Discworld of which I'm a fan, although I've yet to catch up with "Raising Steam". I particularly liked the Witch Take-off/Landing zone, marked W, rather than the expected H for helicopter markings. Didn't notice any trolls or Golems - train probably going too fast to see them.

Some very ingenious re-purposing of some well known, and not-so-well-known, models. One to keep an eye on.

Peterpig order has arrived think the 15mm figures will make the various brewery dwarves mostly English Civil War gun crew & farmers, some holding barrels on loading dock or Copperage farmer I stables as us a pitch fork. Plus barrels for loading dock & Copperage. Town Watch have a mobile crossbow as well as War of Roses Crossbow men to along with Musketeer in the Gusrd Tower. One Fantasy figure will look great on the street very Discworld. As with drunk down alley & man in stocks by Guard Tower.
