A recent addition to Withiel, a P D Marsh white metal signal gantry.

Where did you get those backscenes from anselm - or did you do them yourself? They look so real and blend in really well.
Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

Looking good. Nice modelling.
I like the turntable but agree, probably could do with a bit of weathering.
Not too sure the Brit and the carriage are going to fit on though !
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Hi Austinbob,
The backscenes came from International Models. I am pleased with them although a minor drawback is that the 6? sections provided make a mirror image. A comment made by my grand daughter much to her amusement!  :)

I picked up a CD from Smart Models at Warley.  Also available as a download.

This is the war memorial.  I've missed off some small pieces but am quite pleased with the result.  Shown here with a Metcalfe kit to show size:

There are 3 different shades of wooden fences and a concrete version.  Again I have missed out the fence posts (too small for my fingers):

I've been working on Etched Pixels mail coach fittings.  Quite pleased with the results although a few pieces were too small for me to fit:

Now need to try weathering the coaches down to get rid of the brightness.

A little more progress over the summer:

The cricket pitch at the end of a long summer.  Just need to add a faded boundary.  Definitely rule 1 applies to the distance to the boundary!

Looking very good.
Will that cricket field be seeing a few player ?

Thank you.  I'm not sure.  The board is 3 feet wide so I need an area to put my hand for support when leaning over!  Perhaps if I have the team close together around the wicket?

I like Steve's idea about the tea !  Seriously though, cricket is hard to portray as the field needs to be so big to be to scale. I have a small cricket ground (with players) on Port Perran which looks OK but in reality it is FAR too small.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Some great scenic modelling there.  Very realistic.  Really like it.

Re the cricket, if the players are having Tea there's bound to be one or two lounging by the pavilion having a ciggie!
