Yesterday, after taking the photos of the house using a telephoto lens I turned the camera, still with the same lens set to its maximum focal length, to look down the layout to get this pic of the Ivatt 2MT with a short goods train.

Thanks Kevin, and I reciprocate the wishes! And to everyone else, too. I'm trying to think of a Christmas 'card' for the forum but inspiration is sadly lacking. Might finish up using last years!

You might be the person to help with a little person problem. This is the front garden of the farm house and I've always imagined that it's the farmer's wife who looks after it. I've been hunting for a suitable figure to represent her. I see her kneeling down tending a plant but I've not found such a figure. I guess you've looked at quite a lot of the available figures when populating Windmill Hill - any ideas?

Amazon have a set of Langley  5 N gardeners, one kneeling, but you'd need to do a bit of gender hacking, they are unpainted white metal so you may be able to remove the cap and fit some hair and add a skirt;

Just to tend the garden?!

Might have to reduce the size of the hand as well, if the photo is an accurate representation! I'll give them a try - thanks Mike.

Hi Roger,

I will have a look through my "pot of people" and see if there is anyone in there that looks like they would be up to tending the farmhouse garden for you. :D

I definitely know I have some farmers wives ..... hopefully one will be in a suitable position  :D

All best wishes

Kevin

Admittedly at 1:160 rather than 1:148, but Noch and Preiser make suitable figures. See, for example, Preiser set 79056:



Or from Noch 36622 (available from UK suppliers):

Thanks Bruce. Kevin has just PM'd me to say he's found something that might be suitable and will send it to me. So hopefully some of those flowers will soon be dead-headed!
