I'm still worried about the baps.
For a brief period in my (very) early career, I delivered bread door to door.  Baps were round, flat, soft rolls.  Other sorts of rolls were:
Cob - more sperical in shape and very crusty
Roll - the sort of thing you use for hot dogs
Bridge rolls - a small version of the roll used for parties.
And then there were buns: current or fruit buns, iced buns, cream buns and, at easter, hot cross buns.  There were also Belgian buns, which weren't buns at all but more like plain Danish pastries.  Chelsea Buns were a cross between an iced bun and a Belgian bun. 

I hope that gives you a flavour  :-[ of rolls and buns.
With kind regards
Laurence

I agree, a wall or fencing will make it less like a platform.
How about the Ratio GWR fencing, perhaps painted green or red or whatever colour you fancy?
Maybe a few potted plants to liven it up? Barrells with a little greenery glued on too work quite well.


Thank you for the suggestions. Regrading the fencing Iíve been having a look around and I think I like the look of this style fencing http://www.gaugemaster.com/item_details.asp?code=FA272401&style=main&strType=&Mcode=Faller+272401 itís a bit more robust that the Lineside stuff and in that scenario I think itís a better fit.

Iíve also treated myself to some air dry modelling clay today for making plant pots. Iíve always thought of having 2 large pots either side of the steps to the reception building so Iíll see what I can come up with for smaller pots too. If Iím feeling really brave then maybe even some rectangular pots on top of the fencing.

That Faller fencing looks just right I think.
Looking forward to seeing it in place and with the pots.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

If anybody has any ideas then please do share.  :hmmm:


I like the stuff from Scale Model Scenery - maybe something like this -
https://www.scalemodelscenery.co.uk/lx285-n-quayside--harbour--promenade-railings---n2mm1148-8792-p.asp

Or you could do worse than look at https://www.3d-pluss.net

Can it be changed to burgers?

I prefer baps myself.  ;)

Whilst waiting for the postie to bring me some railings Iíve been playing with modelling putty.





Benches added for scale. I wonít use all of these, I just took the opportunity with some left over putty to keep trying different shapes.
