With a given area of two foot x ten inches to play with meant  the kind of compromise where you end up with only half a castle  so an impression was best I could come up with and here's that impression so far and looking nothing like the original !

More photo's when it's finished.

Allan.

Thank you but erm your spelling of modelling appears to be a letter short too and, the use of a capitol P in 'spelling' ? -  strange...:hmm

Let's all agree on Alan's magnificent modelling skills, but leave everyone's personal use of English aside, as we're all different, as well as guilty at some time or the other of confusing, abusing, throttling and generally muddling through with this great language which still manages to link so many people together all around the planet.

The Spelling of Modelling ( it's showing as a red underline here because I forced the UK spelling) is caused by the fact I work for an American company and all the automatic spell checkers are set to English USA.  I don't see a capital P in spelling although strictly speaking , there is a un-needed capital S, but there may have been a Capital P yesterday for a short time until I edited it, as I have a habit of hitting Caps Lock instead of Shift.
Oh and I believe it's capital not capitol !!! we could go on making mistakes like this forever. Your modelling, / Modeling is still very good though!!!

In which case it's best to make no comment at all surely and just appreciate what each other has to offer.? After all, this is a forum on model railways and not a forum on the correct use of the English language  - or it was...

Anyway, no other country abuses the English language more than the Americans do. Apart from the odd model maker now and then...
