Gee .... that's some mistake!  :smiley-laughing:

Maybe calls for a bit of Cosmetic Tippex?

I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.
If a friend seems distant, catch up with him.

Work has been progressing on Tregonning.
The main street is now under construction - mainly made up of Metcalfe kits (4) plus the Ratio goods shed.
The first kit, shop and cafe are nearly completed.
A small stable is being built behind it.


If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Moving on to the four cottages next. Not sure how much will be done this afternoon as itís allotment time next. Itís a busy time of the year down there. Potatoes, broad beans in the ground and first sowings of beetroot, lettuce, brussel sprouts and spring onions are all underway. Our onion seeds went into trays some 5 weeks ago and are looking good.
Nearly time for parsnip seeds direct into the ground.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I've heard of 5 a day but you've mentioned 7 there, Martin ;)

Ah....when the Government reccommend 7 a day instead of 5 weíll be one step ahead Mick!
Iíve made progress on the 4 cottages but they arenít finished yet.
Here they are in place next to the cafe/shop.
The road will pass in front of the buildings. It all looks rather ďgreyĒ at the moment but once they have little gardens and greenery itíll look ok.
I still have the pub to make.
The small blue box is sitting on the track to mark the position of the Ratio goods shed. Thatíll then be pretty much it for buildings:

Looking good PP. And I do like the Metcalfe models, most of the buildings on my layout will be Metcalfe, (I have probably made too many already  :) :no:), although I am now experimenting with altering them a bit, e.g. new roofs and joinng houses together.

Thanks. Yes, mine will be detailed with drainpips and things and maybe climbing bushes over the front of one or two.

Those climbing bushes are excellent for hiding 'slipped pen syndrome'.  :-X :-[

The Ratio gutters and drainpipes are very good and really make a difference. They are 'fiddly' to glue though. Climbing greenery is an excellent idea. I have some on a back wall of Cant Cove's loco. shed (yet to be fitted as I need to dig out the inspection pit area).

Will you, later, replace all or some of the Metcalfe buildings with your own ones like the characterful Cornish street in Port Perran?
