Thanks Jimbo,
I will have a look later, just got home to the welcoming sight of 8 flat pack cabinets from B&Q! Apparently we are having an island in the kitchen, much to my surprise. :doh:

LOL! No worries, funny you should mention that....a few weeks ago I built an island in the kitchen!!........using carcasses from B & Q!!   :hmmm:

Would have made a great basis for an N gauge 'roundy-roundy' but my beloved insisted it was for food prep etc! Spoilsport! Never mind though some superb cakes etc have been materialising since!!  :food:

Yes, an Isle of Wight layout on the island seems almost mandatory ;)

Jimbo,

Hope my island ends up that smart, SWMBO has purchased slidey out wire storage thingies, what's wrong with a shelf? managed to put 2 together last night.

As for pictures, I opened up my gallery and there are no pictures, went to my images and they are there, I think because I used 'attachments' when I sent from my not-so-smart phone. So I tried the edit button and rotate 90 degs, nothing happened so gave up. Opened up my gallery/images today and the picture I had tried to edit had indeed moved through 90 degs so now it is upside down!!!
Thinking I am destined to be a Luddite for ever.  :beers:

P.S forgot to mention, the shed looks great.

Hi folks!

Not a big update but some progress made! Drilled holes in the crossmembers and the 9mm ply is now glued in place for the N gauge project, next thing I want to do is construct some sort of back scene, I really must come up with a track plan at some point!  :worried:








Also i didn't know wether i ought to put this here or in the 2mm bit but then i thought it does come under the auspices of 'Down the shed' i suppose! As a small project running alongside the main N gauge one i'm dabbling in a bit of 2mm finescale but i'm far from competent at the moment! I made a couple of handy little tools as recommended and shown in the excellent 'Track, how it works and how to model it' book, a pair of double pins and a track test gauge, i don't know if you can see the two tiny 'fingers' on the bit of flat brass, they were filed with the aid of a digital caliper to be 9.42mm apart, this was my 2nd attempt at this one with the use of a magnifying lamp!





And some practice attempts at track and turnout construction with the aid of jigs and templates etc but at the moment it's a case of all the gear and no idea! I shall keep practising!!  :-[









That's it for now folks! Keep smiling!  :D

Jimbo.
