I'm still working on the layout on which Gary did the track plan. I enjoy scenery and buildings more than anything else.
This photo is of two buildings I've kit bashed from Scalescenes. The kits are row of cottages and farmhouse/barn. This is my attempt at the cottage we lived in when we were in Kent, and the manor house next door.
Don't photos bring out the mistakes!!

Nice one Bruce, everything blends in well together to produce a nicely balanced scene.

Thanks to both of you. All a bit Miss Marple I think. Next time I'll try the grim side.

Armstrong Siddeley Sapphire. I once owned a Daimler Consort a bit older than this, but there's never been a model of it, sadly.

I like those Scalescenes builds you've done. Very nice indeed.

Thanks Steve. I'm a great fan of Scalescenes and just starting to kitbash.
I like the idea of using it for forced perspective too, though I've read that there are all kinds of visual traps.

That is very nice Bruce. :thumbs:

I do like the scene you have created. This leaves me wanting more of the same ! Would like to see an update on your layout thread. Keep up the great work.

Cheers, Gary.

Thanks Gary. I think the whole thing will take months, if not years. I can't understand how Americans manage to fill their basements in less than a lifetime.
What a great way to spend time.

That's the great thing about this hobby, it is a life long ambition to own the best layout we could possibly build ourselves. Regardless if it is the second, third or fourth incarnation or attempt at miniature railway granduer, we strive for excellence. So, carry on regardless how long it takes, as the pleasure of what you achieve is very rewarding. Not to forget that it's rewarding for us to see great modelling being carried out, and also for you being able to share your journey with us. :thumbs:

Cheers, Gary.

In the late 40's/very early 50's, my Grandad, who we lived with at the time, had what I understand was an Armstrong Siddeley Star-Sapphire "Shooting Brake", handed down to him cheaply by a local dignitary that he used to chauffeur around in it when said 'dignitary' bought a new car. It actually saved my life, as I pulled the tablecloth one teatime, emptying the boiling contents of the teapot onto myself, and had the car not been available to get me to the local hospital quickly for treatment, doctors said at the time that I would likely not have survived. (At that time, lorries and ambulances had "20" plates on the back, indicating being limited to 20 mph!).
Keith.

(Wonder what that car would be worth now if it had still been around?)

The car would be worth a lot, I suspect. We bought a 1951 Daimler in the mid 70s because that's what we could afford. (It was a heap.) Armstrong Siddeley Sapphires were much too expensive then, and all in gorgeous condition as I remember them. Our other car then was a Renault 12, spectacularly badly assembled in Australia.
In the 1950s my mother's only affluent relative had a sheep property. She half-held her breath when she told us that he used to carry lambs in the back of his Armstrong Siddeley. That was Australia in the 1950s, the money was in wool. We didn't have a car.
I suspect that Armstrong Siddeleys in the 50s and 60s were a bit like Jaguars: cars for Arthur Daileys and Hyacinth Buckets. That's part of the appeal for me.
Sorry to side-track onto this. Should be under Other Hobbies (Fantasy Division).
