Just a straightforward vino collapse Keith :)  I like a wine that is free from deceit or pretence, so I always choose a nice French sincere  when I can  :D

Coming along in leaps and bounds and looking great. :thumbsup:
A good Spanish wine could help you even more but the Spanish keep the best for themselves. :) :beers:

Somebody told me that if every square metre of La Rioja was planted with vines, the wine produced would not cover the amount sold as Rioja wine. There is a lot of "blending" done!
If you can find them try wines from Galicia. Duero and Toro are my favorites. The difference is similar to Beaujolais and Burgundy, Galician wines being lighter. My evening meal is not complete without a couple of (large) glasses of wine. :pint:  A slightly smaller glass, but not much :D

I just had a look at what Google has to say about Rioja wine as I don't know anything about it. The Rioja region is tiny. I'll have to look out for a bottle from there to try it out.

Unfortunately, because Australia has such a large wine industry of its own, we really don't get the selection of foreign wines that you would in the UK. I'm quite (very) partial to reds and I like to try the different styles available from other parts of the world.

What a wonderful way to go off topic :)  I hadn't appreciated that about the Rioja region was so small.  I am very partial to the wines of NZ & Australia.... then there is South Africa... its a past time almost as diverse & expensive as N Gauge!

One of the limitations I am coming up against now on my layout is that having maximised the track plan, I am pretty close to the backboard at a couple of stations - haven't worked out what to do at Muthill yet (where the problem is most acute), but at Tullibardine, it is only the two goods sidings that are affected...... so I started work on the goods shed, but it is going to have to be low relief - this is the Peco one with it's base cut down to size





I was trying to use the magnetic corners I have, had to use the offcut to keep the gap correct



This is the base shell I ended up with (please tell me if the "step by steps" are not interesting & you rather just see the end result!)







As you can see, the new baseboard has quickly become a workbench!

Please keep on doing the step by step Andrew, i think most of us would like to know how things are made, unfortunately not everyone does this, so it is left to being explained in detail how to do it, i think a photo and a few words can tell people more donít you.   

But sometimes i have forgotten to post photos or i have posted photos and not said what i have done.  Double  :doh:

I'm also partial to the flavour of South African reds and Chilean wines are worth a good look as well.

As for cluttering up vacant boards with stuff, I'm a master at that. As I build my layout, I realised that this can't go on so I invested in a whole lot of shelving. This seems to be keeping my problem at bay at least for the time being.

And, I fully support Steamie's comment.

How are you getting on with the magnetic corners, Andrew?
I have a set from York Modelmaking and they will be put to use soon.

They work well when you are building a full kit, I have found them less than useful when there is half a wall missing, as you will see in the coming days & weeks... there has been a lot of kit chopping going on.  I keep forgetting that you can use them to assemble the parts dry... get them square, then add the glue in behind.... I keep gluing up the corners and then trying to hold them together while fitting the magnetic corners  :doh:

The problem with wine tasting is that eventually you forget where the wines came from except that they were on the table. :confused2:
I like to see step by step photos to see how other modelers do things and can I learn from them.
For corners I bought a length of aluminum angle. It must be used on the inside of the corner as the inside angle is slightly rounded. I've yet to cut some of the angle out to make it easier to glue.

You can't beat a table wine with good legs :)

Pressing on with the track to the distillery now, slowly but surely - cork underlay for the two holding sidings down



One thing I have liked about the layouts on the forum is the pictures of trains at stations, any of which my layout is still sadly lacking, so I started trying to address that at Tullibardine, it won't be a very long platform, more a halt - tried using some card to get the curve I need



Once I had done the culvert outflow, I wondered "where would the water be coming from?" - so I started to put something on the other side - it meant digging a hole in the plaster to create a flow path, I am hoping that won't look too odd



Its not very obvious in the 1st pic, but where I had outcrops of brown & the flock has not stuck, I picked them out in a stoney grey to reflect a bit geology



Some more rock work attempts and I notice the culvert is in need of a bit of attention, the paint has not taken too well



Planted some more trees in the gorge, the bridge maintenance team are going to have their work cut out on that troublesome one that has taken root in the mortar

Looking very good.
It'll be good to see a station on the layout Andrew.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.
