Hi Martin,

Obviously haven't seen the potential fence but I like the wall idea a lot. As dannyboy says it looks like it belongs.

Once again, please slow down.

Great stuff and good luck on Saturday, hope you're not snowed off.

Cheers weave  :beers:
Thanks. I have my train ticket and match ticket so yes, hopefully not snowed off.
Not a sniff f snow here.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Hi again,

Sorry to have potentially worried you. Just looked at weather for Cornwall and Bristol, all fine. Thought it was all South/ South West but does look like 'ampshire be hit thursday night and friday.

Might get some train work done in between the snowball fights.

Enjoy the game.

Cheers weave  :beers:

+1 to the wall. It seems to set everything off. :thumbsup:

The wall it is then.
As itís due to rain all day here tomorrow, no doubt the dry stone wallers will be out in force.

Hi Martin,

That is really looking excellent. The static grass looks fantastic, and just the right colour, and the dry stone wall, as David and Mito say, looks so natural there  :thumbsup: :D :thumbsup:

All best wishes
Kevin

Looking really good Martin.

I agree that the static grass makes a real difference. Wall looks good, no need to be sitting on the fence for a decision 😀.

The wall fits in perfectly.  I don't think a fence would quite fit the bill.
With kind regards

I'm with you on this one, Derek.  Association football is totally and completely lost on me.  Although there is probably a reason why Plymouth's team is named after a Scottish county...

And we had snow today... about 1/8"!

Pip-pip.

Iíve been doing a bit to my little box file layout on and off over the last few days. I have mainly concentrated on box 1 working largely on the wall and grassy areas either side of the main line.

Itís still not complete but Iím happier than I was with the way the wall sits into the scenery. Maybe a couple of little saplings along the inside of the wall perhas?
This next photo shows the wall from a more distant perspective

The buildings are yet to be bedded into the scenery. That will be my next job once Iíve done a bit more detailing on them and am happy with the final positions.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Hi John
Not everyone has a love of football I know so no worries on that score (pun unntentional).
But.....to answer your question.
Iím afraid my knowldge of Plymuth Argyle is limited but this is taken from good old wikipedia...
Much speculation surrounds the origin of the name Argyle. One explanation is that the club was named after the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, an army regiment with a strong football side of its own. Another theory is given by the local geographyĖsuggesting the name comes either from the nearby public house, The Argyle Tavern, where the founder members may have met, or from a local street Argyle Terrace.
Make of it what you will.
Martin

The scenery looks wonderful, Martin.
I love that first picture with the Pannier trundling between the walls.
