Hi Mark
Well worth the twelve month wait for that update. Brilliant as ever.

I vaguely remember reading that Peter and Jane book when I was 5. I knew I had a childhood recollection of Frankland buried in my memory - that must be it ?  :confused2:

Thanks again Mark, I will definitely go and read your workbench thread on the darkside. Im very interested particlarly in the coupling method.

Cheers
Kirky

Your posts always make me smile before I turn green with envy... Southern Green of course.  Tonight what makes it more apt is that there are several brass bands playing outside my house as I type this.

From the Cutting Room Floor



 

 
I found some of the original 1920s colour footage on the cutting room floor. I collated it below and hope you enjoy :)

Brilliant as usual, you set very high standards  :thumbsup: and in response to the closing shot "Whish you were here" so do I.  Best wishes   David

I don't think I've come across this thread until today, and even now I've barely skimmed the surface. Just brilliant! The accompanying back-story makes the whole thing real, and the model-making is superb.

Cheers,

When I watched that, me first thought was "Eek, MinZaPint would wet himself over this," but I can see he's already been here. Onya, David.  :beers:

Ab Fab.

Question please.... is that gasholder scratchbuilt? It looks great!  :thumbsup:

@Southernboy, I'm very impressed with what you show here. I'm planning to build a layout showing the same period (the 1920'ies), but then in Belgium. You are modeling the era with great attention for detail and high quality modelling skills. You are an inspiration for me. Great stuff!!!

Lovely update Southernboy. Thanks for switching frequencies. We love picking up your broadcasts. Exquisite modelling and delightfully presented over the ether.

Your graphic design skills are evident in those cigarette cards. Will those be available in the NGF shop soon?

And when do you plan to make the kit of the art deco style apartment block available... I have been waiting so long for that to reach the shops. It's still the best scratchbuilt building, ever, and surely will be a best-seller for decades to come.
