 :hellosign:

Here are few more I managed to take last night from different angles then previous  , thinking of tidying up the backscene where I made the boxfile joins , thought when painted they would be more hidden , so may remove and use something thinner just to tidy it up

Excellent modelling there Mark.
Really lovely work.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Hi All

just couple little details done last night , new better coat of paint added to the box so really stands out , added some Velcro to the lips of the lid as lid had slightly bowed due to last coat of paint .

the sky got a touch up after removing the larger supports that held the lid together and I added a naming sign to the box itself to finish it off . still think could do with a bit of weathering to the station etc so will locate something to do that with

update

I've been informed that Alisgate has been given green light to be on display at the Southampton model railway show this coming weekend . So hopefully she will be on a table next to the layout Tittesworth that I will be helping to run .  :beers:

 :thankyousign: Martin

forgot to add , we did a rough estimate of how far the loco had travelled during the 14 hours of the show over the weekend. like say this is only a estimate

we calculated that the loco had covered 3.4 miles which we put at roughly 450 scale miles  :o , excuse if calculations are incorrect but either way was really impressed on how reliable everything was.

So glad you had a great weekend  :thumbsup:

Yours is a fab layout, and thank you for showing its progress, It has certainly been a help and inspiration for my little "Windmill Hill" layout.

 :thankyousign:

All best wishes,
