As promised yesterday the area we were working on until 18th March was Egerton park, the museum building and the outdoor pool.

First 3 photos from the same period. Copyright Bexhill Museum.







And now the modelled location:

We still have the snow to add.







Here we see the council starting to remove the railings to be shipped to the munitions factory to be melted down for the war effort











The track seen in front of the park will be a tramway.

That looks really good.
What are the circles for where the people are skating?
Are they little motorised turntables to spin around?

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Lots of brave souls splashing around in the lido while it's cold enough to ice skate!
Excellent detailing and modelling :claphappy:

Along the seafront adjacent to the de la Warr Pavilion is a row of seafront properties described thus:

Grade II listed. Row of bungalows which are next to the de la Warr Pavilion. Built between 1903 and 1907 by various architects in a Moghul style.

If you want to look at the real thing then google Marina Court Avenue, Bexhill.

Here is our depiction of them.

Building to the left is the rowing clubhouse.




Once again no snow yet  :no:

Post_26 7th July 2020.

Lots of building has been going on during lockdown and we now have the opportunity to get back to the layout and plant some buildings.

Here are a few shots to get the feel of how we are proceeding.

Playhouse cinema. (Now a JD Wetherspoons pub).


Boots the Chemist looking N/E towards St Leonards Rd.


Boots the Chemist on corner of Devonshire Rd and Parkhurst Rd.


Boots the Chemist from above.


Looking North along Devonshire Rd. I should have removed the 12 ruler!


Wonky lamppost!


Looking North along Sackville Rd.


Sackville Road Methodist Church, looking east along Parkhurst Road.


Junction of Sackville Road, looking east along Western Road.


Same view from lower down, Must straighten up the traffic lights!


Bye for now  :wave:

All the best.

Post_27 9th July 2020.

Just in case you were wondering how we get to the middle of this layout to clean the track or perform other repairs and alterations then this is the answer:

Crawl along the boards.



Reach down.




Have a rest up in the clouds, amongst the aircraft.



 I figure if my eye level is 4ft feet above the layout then I am looking down from (4ft * 148) approx 600ft.

Yes that is me two days ago with 4 months growth of hair.

I had it cut yesterday.

If you look closely at the bottom R/H corner of photos 1&2 then you can see where on the layout Boots the chemist is that is shown in Reply #67 above.

If I had to access my layout that way then I would be continually be going backwards and forwards for the tools and materials I had forgot to take with me, followed by falling off onto the layout.

Rather you than me

All looks very impressive though

Stay safe

Too right. You are obviously more 'bendy' than I am :-[
Those pics do give a better impression of the size of the layout, though :goggleeyes:
