So far:-




thoroughly enjoyable so far. Will add some depth to the doors as well with additional framing.

To be used for my new Barnstable platform.

I agree with Terry. :thumbs I enjoy watching these kits being made up, as there is always something to learn along the way.

Cheers, Gary.

I really like John's kits - they're fun to build, flexible for modifications, look good and strong as iron. :thumbs:thumbs:thumbs

Nice start Sol. :cheers

I am having to modify the medium station because the trackside and roadside door and windows are at the same level.
I am not able to raise the station forecourt as i have not enough space at the front of the base board . I have to allow for a through road and car park.:oops:

Terry, started months ago by glueing the printouts to card but really only got going about Feb 10 in dribs & drabs but I guess without having to wait until paper/card to dry - about 11-12 hours.
 I have never really timed myself on buildings, trackwork  etc.

Hi Sol,

Looks sound. Is that Metcalfe platform slabs I see there. I like the way some cracked slabs have been introduced. I think people tend to forget that these exist and things end up too uniform as a result.

Good stuff

Cheers

Toto

I don't think I did Peter but one needs to know how to manipulate cells in spreadsheets by altering row & columns widths, adding borders & fill with colours.....
as per the attached.

I see where Excel fits in Sol but whenever I print from it, I lose all the cell markings so it comes out like a word document (but in the right columns etc.)

Peter, I even opened the file up on Libre Office / Open Office & it was good but with any files that you did not create, it always pays to do a Print Preview first to see if it looks correct.
Sometimes depending on the version & brand of software that created the file, adjustments maybe needed by the User.

Try Format Cells - Border - Outline

You can change the thickness of the borders around each cell until it looks right.

It's in the printing that I lose the cell lines ..............:roll::roll:

I use excel for spreadsheets but can't seem to print anything other than the cell content. :???:  Obviously there's something I haven't clicked in the print instructions .................:cry:

Hi Petermac

Try downloading Sol's file in post #15 and do a print preview.

If the preview looks OK but it still doesn't print, it's your printer settings or the printer driver files.

You could try looking for a newer version of the printer driver files on the web.
