As good as new.

Thanks Marin - lucky I got away with that one! Hope I can finish the building with no more near disasters...

Thanks Chris. Good luck with the kit - I don't seem to get on with them! My attempt to build the Ratio foot bridge was a total disaster but parts of it did get used in the scratch built one. I think the only kit built items on Wrenton are the cattle dock and the coal bins. I even butchered the former a bit to get it to fit in the available space and I also covered the moulded stone work with brick paper to tie it in with the other buildings in the goods yard. I hope you and your wife are feeling better.

Good news. I do suffer a bit that way myself, I just rest a while when it happens. Slow and sure with that kit - we're not on a television challenge programme!

Some more progress on the new station building, and no accidents I'm pleased to say. It's starting to look like its prototype now - anyone recognise it?





The real thing has some hanging flower baskets during the summer months, but representing them might be a step to far. There are also some small lamps on the front of the building and a larger one on the left hand corner. They'd be a problem, too, and very vulnerable if I could make them.

Looks excellent Roger but Iím afraid I donít recognise it.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

That's a lovely building, Roger.

GWR?

Devonshire?

Best wishes.

Hi Roger,

First off thank you so much for the posts of your awesome layout. I have found it really inspiring to me in making my little layout.  :thumbsup: :D :thumbsup:

The pub on "Windmill Hill" has some hanging baskets outside, and to get the size right meant a few "research" visits to my local pub  ;)



I made them by gluing together the split ends of some plastic rawlplugs and painting them brown .....



I then cut the ends off at the 3mm (18" in real life) point, and gluing on some of the sponge flock I use for trees. Then I dabbed on some acrylic paint with the end of a cocktail stick, to represent the flowers .....



I glued on the wall some cut offs from the brass sprue painted black for the brackets, and then glued the baskets under them.



All best wishes
Kevin

Try Somerset. It's still in use, and sees passing kettles.

Thanks for that, Kevin. I knew I'd seem some somewhere. I'll have a play. I've enjoyed following your mini masterpiece, too!

Stogumber?

I was there a few months ago and seem to recall the bricked up door.

Cheers
