Spot on Peter, why anyone would want to model Gods Worst Railway or the Sickly Railway, i'll never understand, must be a lack of whisky in the water.:cheers

I don't suppose you've seen my one in N scale Perry?    Post rails etc all made from old credit cards and more info and pictures on my Coombe Hinton layout.   Here's a couple of photos:-

Aye, well ahead of their time, the worlds first train wash.

Design was OK, just dodgy cast iron, hence the move to girrrrders

.......................

Sorry Perry

Back on topic, sheep or cattle, looking at the price for white metal annimals, its almost cheaper buying the 12" : 1ft versions

Very nice, Ken. I have a job seeing OO scale, so N is right out for me! :roll:

Work has continued with some more fencing panel being built and fixed in place.

I'm not sure whether to bother with dummy hinges and latches. The little wing gates are only 1cm wide, so I may be a little 'challenged' to do that. I'll think about it.....



All the fencing now needs to set solid before I paint it and fix it in position.

Thanks, Derek.

I use an illuminated magnifier that stands on my workbench some of the time, but I find it gets in the way of long-handled tools and brushes at times. It's beter than nothing though.

I know what you mean re handles, my OOO brushes for OO figure painting I have cut in half (the wooden bits) or they get in the way of my magnifying glass on a stick.

:)Hi Perry ,Thats why I switched to the clip on magnifiers.They just clip on to your glasses and leave your hands and desk free.

Best of luck,

Derek.
