    This is a new project I’m due to start.
    The base this time is a larger oak plinth which measures 10”x4”. The theme is a fictitious one but is based around the 1960s.
    A small goods area which will be cobbled. My choice of vehicle will be a 1/76 Austin K8 van and this time I will be adding a loco which I still need to source.
    I hope it all sounds, hopefully the plinth will arrive Wednesday latest so the track can be fitted.
    More to follow..

    It sounds good to me Mark! If it is up to your usual standard then it will be spot on :thumbs:.

    Cheers, Pete.

    Hi I have started work on my next project. As you can see the track has been added to the baseboard, a small unloading area has been erected and the brickwork as been glued in place.
    The track will be weathered and the brick walls will also be painted and weathered. I’m going to add a thin layer of filler over the top of the unloading area to replicate concrete.
    So for now a picture of my work so far and my Austin van..
