I'm not usually one to make New Year's Resolutions but having just finished my model of John Ahern's village shop (see separate thread), and casting my eye around to see what to make next, I realised that I have some models which still require some finishing touches.  It has been niggling me for some time that I had  not got around to weathering the rather pristine roof of the timber framed cottage built a while ago.  No time like the present!  Out came the watercolour paints and in five minutes the job was done...



Another model of which I have been very aware requires more work, is the loco shed originally intended for a small industrial layout.  I started a thread on this forum but, unfortunately, the project floundered.  I still have it in mind to complete the project albeit in a modified form.  Here is the loco shed.  It required guttering and downpipes, some detail around the chimney and finally weathering..



The shed is now on my workbench awaiting the finishing touches.


Could this be a good time to find the impetus to get to grips with those unfinished models of yours?

Good on you Terry.  I recently received some bucket style collectors from ModelU:

https://www.modelu3d.co.uk/product-category/detailing-components/architectural-detailing/pipes-fittings/

 for my engine shed gutters.  This will enable me to finish the gutters and downspouts.

Now those are proper resolutions!

Models look great now, they will be amazingly great when you have finished them.

What a great idea Terry.
Alas, I feel that a resolution like that should have been made last year. It has, however, given me the get up and go to get some stuff finished.
As always in this hobby, things get put to one side to start another project and then another. If only some of us could have the patience to complete one project at a time. It would also save a lot of space!

Always leave something to be done to delay the journey from Platform 9 & 3/4 to the final terminal station in the sky !

my new year resolution, is to run all my locos this year, that means, 19 ,3 rail, 100 , 2 rail, plus  my TT, and N gauge. Looks like a lot of servicing, and Rolling road work ahead.. Given i have 9,  ovals for dc, it wont be too bad, but i tend to run my  regulars, keeping many in display cabinets. john
