Here are a few models that I had completely forgotten I had built, who for, and what for.

Built in my 'Pyruma Days' and usuing a home made stonewall press I hope they may be of interest to you and if you know of their whereabouts, please let me know.

Allan

Don't know where they are now, Allan, but they looked exceptionally good where they were then.

Thanks DD for the kind comments.

The mill scene was taken outside of the BRM offices at Bourne where Peter Marshall of the Waggon and Carriageworks brought it all the way up from Sawbridgeworth in the back of a van, had it photographed, then drove all the way back again - an 8 hour round trip!

It was the first time I met Tony Wright and Tony wasn't a happy bunny when I poured water into the river as he knelt down to take the low shot and soaked his trousers !

Anyway, he said, and rightly so, " Look mate, PO and let me do my job and you do yours!" anyway, we ended up the best of mates and he  really had my sense of humour. He'll be sadly missed now that he's no longer taking part in the hobby - his camera work was second to none, especially the day when he brought his all new fangled digital camera along to try it out and I trod on it !

There's so many stories....

Cheers.

Allan.

Allan has very kindly agreed to let us all in on some of the tales and anecdotes that have surrounded his life as a professional modeller which gives members a unique opportunity to smile, laugh, or shake their heads at the other side of our hobby.

His reminiscences start here : http://yourmodelrailway.net/view_topic.php?id=11199&forum_id=14

Many thanks Allan.

The pictures above should be accompanied with ; 

                                               EXPLICIT GRAPHIC CONTENT SHOWN


...as it had forced me to say such things as "B#gg*@ me", how the h*ll did Allan do that ?" and "It's got to be bl$$dy photoshopped..??"

                                                                             :Red Card:Red Card:Red Card

Great work from the modelling maestro indeed.

Cheers, Gary.

Beautiful models Allan. It's your attention to detail that really brings them to life.

Thanks for the kind comments guys, makes it all worthwhile.

Often wondered what happened to that station but I'm sure it's in good hands.

Thanks everybody.

Allan.

Here's a church ( in two parts!) that I built a while back at about the time when I had given up on Pyruma Fire Cement as a  Modelling medium in exchange for Wills Stone Sheets
