    Looking great, loads of little details there and the buildings are fab.
    How's about some close ups.
    Cheers

    Sorry Ian,
    I meant to ask, are you going to put a valance along the font of your baseboard edge ? It would protect your baseboards a bit.
    Cheers

    Hi Toto yes plan on putting a valance on the front but it won't be wood I'm afraid but well varnished and painted cardboard. As for the close ups I'll try but my phone's camera gets fuzzy around 3ft... or that might be me...!

    Nicely done Ian,
    Super details. I like the way the cobbles have been overgrown with the grass on the edges of the road.
    The figures are spot on as well.
    Thanks for posting. Another prime candidate for the side gallery once I've worked out how to do it.
    I have been looking at the existing photo's on the system to try and get my head around it a bit better. It will come. :lol: Eventually
    Cheers
    Toto

    Hi Ian,

    I'll work it out once I get home as I'll be working off my laptop rather than my IPad.

    Beautiful shots.

    Cheers

    Toto

    One thing that stands out for me Ian, is your buildings. These are superb. [​IMG]

    Will you be painting your track (sleepers and rails) prior to ballasting ?

    Cheers, Gary.
