The finished version looks very good, Andrew. If you have not already glued on the roof, skylights would, probably, be the easiest to add: some transparent plastic (I use the packaging from fresh vegetables) and plastic strip for frames?

Yes, please, PM me and I'll send you the doc. file with the jpegs on it.

Thought I would post an overview of how the refinery units are coming along + the garage for the tanker fleet, then new additions all need to be weathered up, and I need to think about the signage for the garage (the ones that came with the kit were all in Japanese)....

The weathered unit on the left-hand side looks really excellent, Andrew. Highly realistic.

It's all looking really good. The corrugated iron really improves the office. If you have a photo manipulation program, download photos off internet and scale them down to N size. :thumbsup:

Which bit is the space and which bit do you actually work in ?? :claphappy:
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

My kitchen table looked like that the summer before last as I had so many modelling projects on the go. Now, I'm concentrating just on wagons and vans. All the figures and road vehicles will have to wait until the summer. I do hope though to finish the 'plastering' on Cant Cove and, at least, paint it all green (for grass) or grey (for granite) before I restart full-time work, next month.

Some of the rolling stock that will service the refinery & oilfields - you can see two incarnations of the Blackford Petroleum Co. livery in this picture, the crude oil tankers in the background & the more modern product tankers in the foreground  :angel:

A very nice selection of petrol tankers. Using the Peco tanker wagon kit, maybe, the "Castle Estates" will get into the liquid fuel distribution business, too? 8-)

Some other shots of my earlier layout that had to be dismantled before it was anywhere near completion - shows some of the freight stock I still have

That's a very impressive collection of goods stock, Andrew. One tip for improving the Peco plastic barrel load I see in two open wagons, 'flood' the flat part around the barrels with dilute (enough to flow inbetween the barrel shapes) matt black paint.

Thanks Chris, that is a great tip - will take a look at that, will still not be as good to look at as the barrell loads you have done, but it will be a big improvement
