Thanks for all your kind comments and 'likes'
Finally, what you have all been waiting for! The premiere of 'Martindale the Windmill'
Come on you slackers, there is only 2 days to go!
Well done mate.
well done Sir.
Very well done Timbersurf and congratulations on winning this competition, I particularly liked the fact that the scene was viewable from all sides.
Excellent model and congratulations on winning the competition
Did anyone actually notice?
...... obviously not!
I did naturally
Congratulations on POTW. So many excellent images to choose from.
Thanks for all your efforts.
Hi Timbersurf, congrats on Pic of the week, an excellent build, Toto found it was hard picking the image to use.
Toto had it easy!
I have about 200 pics, I had to wade through and whittle down to 10, to pic the final ones!
It has been a bit of an ambition to make POTW, so very proud I have made it to the P1MRC annals.
P1MRC annals ? Goodness heavens above and there I was Timber thinking that you were a good all round chap ... anyway congrats on making POTW as yours is an incredibly good spot of scenic modelling and the goat lurking by the trees also agrees too
Prizes on route special delivery. Should be with you by Monday. Please let me know when they land.
If the Queen can have an annus horribilis, in Latin, then I can have an annus mirabilis, both of which sound worse than than the Forum annals, or should I just be clearer and say 'Hall of Fame'.
Cheers Toto, will do!
Just to let you know, they arrived intact this morning , a lot to do tonight and off to London tomorrow, but will try to get to the layout tonight and power one pressie with the other, just for my own gratification, but a video may have to wait till the weekend.
The rolling road is a brammer! (for the Southerners, it is a 'gudun', for the very southerners, it is a corker).
The ROD, I am not sure?
a. The detail level Bachmann have applied is ludicrous!!! I had to get my magnifying glasses on and fit my camera macro lens just to work out what half of it is!
b. It comes with bits. Not sure what they are, some obvious (microscopic shovel and rake), some not. We can scrutinise when I upload a video.
c. It wobbles on the rolling road! (which is a bit of a concern)
Lets wait till we see the vid before going to town with it.
Bottom line is, I only own very (40 years) old loco's, plus several new (railroad) Hornby TTS and one early Bachmann diesel with sound, the level of detail Bachmann go to on their modern steam, is astonishing (and very worrying it wont last 5 minutes!)
