The new one is definitely my favourite  :thumbsup:





And I won’t be adding a second on the other side. It just wouldn’t look right!  :ngauge:

Almost another month has gone by without an update. Where does the time go?

I’ve been tinkering away and experimenting with ideas. Most around lighting. After gathering a number of vehicles for the construction area it soon became clear that there wasn’t nearly as much space as I thought there was so the idea has been scaled back somewhat. There’ll be light from the headlights of the car, a flashing amber light on the side of the skip and possibly a light in the portaloo just for interest. I’m toying with the idea of adding a “security” decal to the car to tie it in a little better  :hmmm:



With no room for a crane I plan on mounting a jib section out of view and hanging an I beam from it. Possibly having a few more on the back of the wagon being unloaded.

In the yard area I’ve been experimenting with light for the gatehouse. I also thought that in practice it would make sense for it to have access to the platform area so I’ve printed and primed some concrete steps ready for the final colour.



In the back of my mind I’ve been wondering what to do with the little bit of dead space at the front by the point;



As ever; any ideas welcome.

Thanks for looking
Paul

P.s. thank you for the help sourcing parts from the members who helped me out. Your help and kindness is very much appreciated.  :NGF:  :beers:
