It's not difficult to turn wine (or any other drink come to think of it) into water but very difficult to do the converse. Obviously some sort of Celtic magic going on :uneasy:

I rember being at a party in the 70s and someone was presented with a glass of "wine" that colour and it was still warm.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

The only parties I was going to in the '70's were for under 12's.... though there were a few "watery" mishaps in the early '70's at those too.....

Question is.........."Was it consumed!"? :(
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

You beat me to it Martin, i was going to say the same. Regarding the shed it looks superb, you have done a nice job restoring it, hope it is warmer than my loft which is supposed to have been insulated, not sure what with.

Thanks Chris, so far it is warm, I have a ceramic heater... but it is a fan heater with not a very sensitive thermostat.... so it was either on & very hot, or not coming on at all... have replaced it for a more benign type that will hopefully circulate just enough background heat to keeo it stable... and not circulate all the dust too!

Tested the track for wobbles with some of the small tar tankers I have (can't believe the price on ebay that these have been going for lately, still possible to get them at a reasonable price here and there thankfully)



These one are jointly owned by Shell/Blackford Petroleum  :)



I have quite a good rake of these now, "something 'bout them tankers I like".  (sure there is a song in there somewhere!)



Let's park them here for a while.



This is a kit I made up using Robbies Transfers, by the same strange mentality that has me liking the rectangular ones... I don't really like the 15' tankers..... I just have the ladders to add.... may do them in white, just to pick them out as a bit of detail.

Finally in a position to start putting down some of the refinery units I have built already...



Will take a bit of planning to fit it all in and not over-crowded it



Even just having a few bits placed down changes the feel of it all



getting to the point where I need to decide where things like access roads to the station & refinery will come in from as well as how the hills around here will appear
