    Brilliant modelling Giles, I think you have set a very high benchmark for all the 7mm 'O' gauge modellers on the forum! :)

    The fence is very realistic, the two birds just takes into a whole different realm. Once again the bar has been raised and once again I am so impressed with what the members of Platform 1 achieve.
    Can you share with us how you made those two little birds and how you created the fence?
    Beautiful beautiful beautiful layout.
    Cheers Steve

    Would love to see a tutorial on the running water. Amazing quality.

    To add to variety, i bought a Bedford TK artic (Hales Cakes - with a box trailer) on Ebay, this was to join the field of radio controlled vehicles first started seven years ago!
    The body of the box trailer was discarded, but the chassis used, as I wanted a flat bed.
    The unit is a little cramped to get everything in without invading the visible cab, but it is achievable.
    The battery is situated under the trailer flatbed.

    The TK is now fully complete aside from weathering. The trailer had its tie-downs and light board, and all is the correct colour, and the unit's roof was stripped of the white and sprayed blue.

    The water is surprisingly simple. The water coming from the pipe is very simply a piece of clear plastic, heated and bent to shape, then with 90 second epoxy run down both sides with a cocktail stick to create the three dimensional effect. This was then put in place, and more epoxy used to 'flow' it into the stream itself

    The Bedford looks great. :thumbs: We had these Bedfords down under, but I don't recall seeing them as a truck/trailer combo.

    Could we get some pics of the burnt out office that appears in the background. I have seen it on RMweb, but I'm sure the members here would love to see the work you have done with this excellent model.

    cheers, Gary.

    Like the TK, like a £ for every mile I drove one in the Army!! Not seen an articulated TK to my knowledge?
    Great modelling, O gauge certainly has it's plus points!! :)
    Cheers

    Funny you should say that! I took my HGV1 with a TK artic in Lincolnshire in early 1983... I hated the flipping thing (and all TKs) as at 6'4" I had to drive with my head tilted to one side as the cab was so low!

    I can't remember if we had a twenty five foot trailer or a twenty seven foot.... this is a twenty seven foot job.

    This is the burned out office mentioned above.

    I laser cut it from 2mm MDF with 0.8mm ply windows. This has now been planted on Denton Brook to add balance.
