I second the comment welcome to the ngs, a article from you on making buildings would go nice in the mag. Since the new editor the mag has improved with lots of good articles, and they are always looking for more.

Nice Avatar, did you do the painting your self, that would go some way to explain your mastery with your scenery.

Yes, all my own work. It took ages.

@lil chris
Now you've seen the painting, we still have openings at the Knitting Circle, Chris ;)
(BTW - I'm hoping you're not taking me seriously regarding giving up and taking up the knitting needles!)

You have to admit they're beautiful beasts. But did they look better with the valances or without? My vote is without.

A magnificent painting!  I see the Forth Bridge almost every day and never tire of it.

Although I have seen rather a lot of 'No. 9' over the years, I've got to admit that my vote would be for the valances.  Probably 'Coronation' blue just pips 'Silver Jubilee' silver/grey for liveries, in my view.

I've often wondered what BR 'Racing Green' would look like on an 'A4' with valances.  It certainly suits the unvalanced locomotives.

Thank you very much for sharing the large image of your painting.

With all best wishes.

The thing I most like about your village is the variation in ground level and street frontage (building line). This gives a wonderful naturalness and sense of townscape.

Can we have a little more about your use of the Silhouette catting machine? What made you buy it and how much do you use it?

Without valences, certainly. And there can be doubt that the maintenance crew thought that!  :thumbsup:

Great artwork! The late Mr Cuneo has competition!

Didn't spot a mouse, though  :beers:

An absolutely incredible build and an awful lot of talent. I'll be following with much interest.

I first found out about the machine from a magazine article a while back. It showed some impressive 4mm scale coach sides cut with it and I thought that it would be a great way of making buildings and more.

I've just added a post to the cottage build thread which shows some non-house building uses. In fact I use it for pretty much any plastikard cutting job.
