Rodda's tastic mate (that'll get some of the fools and horses confused  :)).

I dunno, googled it but near you I think

Indeed - at Scorrier about 3 miles away.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

The creamery is looking very good, Martin. My only comment would be that the milk loading gantry looks a bit over-engineered when compared to those used at Torrington:

Top of me 'ed, which is probably a bad idea, but regarding Chris (IP)'s photo, several Dapol single catenary masts with other bits springs to mind.

They're pretty cheap as a give it a go.

Just an idea.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Iíve decided to carry on with the creamery rather than the goods shed.
So.....thoughts please. This is very much early days and Iíve used modelling license but with reference to several West Country creameries.
Nothing is anywhere near completed and nothing is set in stone yet.
The large gantry is a milk filling station whilst the smaller one will be for cleaning out the milk tanks.
There will be a chimney at the far side.
The piece of wood indicates the position of the yard wall which will be taller and carry on right around the building.
Any thoughts - critical or otherwise will be appreciated.




 :hellosign: Creamery looking good Martin, an excellent feature  :thumbsup:
       regards Derek.

It turned out to be a nice day today so this morning we took a walk from Falmouth docks past Pendennis Point and Castle Beach onto Gylly Beach for a cup of coffee. On the way we saw this kestrel hovering over the seas edge only a few feet from us. Unfortunately, not the greatest photo with my phone

Later this afternoon I spent some time on the perimeter fence and entrance gates for the creamery. Itís not finished yet (more to do). The screwdriver is acting as a weight on the building and the two small bits of wood on the canopy roof are there for safe keeping in case I lose them.


If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Creamery is coming along nicely. What do you use for the stonework on your buildings - it looks good?
If it looks right and it works then I'm happy.

Itís just Slaterís Plastikard sheets (stone effect in this case to represent granite blocks) painted with acryllics.

Iíve not managed much time on Tregonning today but I have laid the tarmac sandpaper in the yard at the creamery. It is currently weighted down with all sorts of heavy metalwork so no photos this evening.  If Iím happy that the glue has dried later, I may get round to painting the sandpaper but weíll see in a bit.
I did spend part of the day at our club HQ earlier where we have, tentatively, started work on our rendition of Bodmin Road (early 60s). Due to space limitations on our baseboard we have applied a certain degree of artistic license but hopefully, it should, eventually, resemble the original. Evenif only a little!
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Iíve been doing more work on the creamery on and off over the last few days.



The following two pictures show how it sits in the layout in its case:

The creamery looks excellent and prototypical.  Well done!
With kind regards

Absolutely fabulous!
