Whitsend - start to finish (PIC HEAVY)
« on: January 08, 2012, 09:40:14 PM »
Hi all ! When I put some photo's on the new 'Media' section, I got a few comments about a small layout I built about 18 months age called 'Whitsend'. When I built it, I took photo's of it's progress and i've finally put them together in one file - See below !

The sad news is that, the layout had been stored for a short time in my garage due to a move which never happened... During that time the night temps went down to -11 deg C ! The frost destroyed the layout (especially the delecate river) and wasn't salvageable..... :'(

Such a shame it didn't survive trial by frost. You had a cracking layout in the making. Are you planning to reincarnate it?

Thanks for the info polo2k  :thumbsup:  , but to be honest i just don't have the time for another hobby ! It's hard enough with Trains, fishing, photography, xbox, r/c tanks - i'm running out of time and money !

When i'm a bit more flush, my beloved Audi 80 avant may get retro'd...  ;)

I wish !!!  :smiley-laughing: :smiley-laughing: :smiley-laughing:

But, I do have the famed ABK 2.0 8v engine - lots of potential....  :evil:



Anyway, I think we're on the edge of being told off for straying off the subject.... Any updates on my 'Panzer mobile' i'll let you know.  :thumbsup:
Cheers !  ;D
