Well finally the Perth show was upon us, and it was well worth waiting for. Fantastic quality of modelling this year, and some new layouts to enjoy. I think the success of a show can be measured on how many piccies I take, and I broke all records this year :D .

Enough of my waffling and on to the piccies, there are more to come if that is okay with Bob and there will be some from Matt too.

I'm not going to label them all as it would take forever, but there is a mixture of, British, German, Swiss and American in all scales





















A final note on the last few pictures, this layout was by Glenrothes MRC in n scale. The Odeon cinema complex and the replica of Balbirnie house are both scratchbuilds :shock: and I just had to get this top down shot of it.

I have had to reduce the definition on these as there are so many so the detail might no be great.

More to follow if I get the green light from the boss man :D

I think it's a bit late in the day to start worrying about the number of pictures being posted Lawrence. If I tried to restrict them now gawd knows what would happen. The ravening beasts would probably be let loose and then no more Fat Controller. :shock: :shock: :lol: :lol:

My contribution to the report on Perth MRC Show

Got there early and it was great to be able to wander round the layouts without battling with others to get a sight and nobody hogging the best vantage positions. The show was, I think, about the right size and well laid out. Got to say the day got off to a flier when paying my admission money I was given a refund due to being over 60 so it not only free bus travel and prescriptions we get up here in God's chosen country.

Any way enough ... here are the photos and remember I am no Chris !!!!

Rosebank Shed by Bonnyridge MRC 00Gauge

Steam shed designed to hold around 30 locomotives. There is also a small canal area and a working turntable







Mullertal by Axel Klozenbuecher N gauge

Stunning layout set in the Black Forest. Level of detail excellent and what a bridge over the ravine








Feather River by Cupar MRC HO Gauge

Branch line in Western U S A.







Devilla Colliery by Stirling & Clackmannan 00 gauge

A local area colliery





Blackwood Junction by Glenrothes MRC N gauge

Level of detail is superb all the more so considering it is N gauge








Overlord 00 gauge

Although not my No 1 for reasons I will explain later, this blew me away. I have an interest in the Second World War (father was in the 51st Highland Div, 8th Army). The size, the detail and the "busyness" of it ... my words or photos do not do it justice.















Widnes Road 4mm finescale

A fictional fueling and stabling depot




Drumschochstock Summit by Moray MRG 00 gauge

Another big layout with long rakes of trucks .... superb curved viaduct







This next one is for Phill.



Tetfield St Mary by Forth MRG 0 gauge

Typical GWR branch line terminus






Almond Bridge by Perth MRC 00 gauge


Modern and again is a biggish layout









Swinlees by Ayr MRG 00 gauge

Big layout being 32' x 12' as well as a signifcant fiddle yard. Fictitious setting in G & SWR between Glasgow & Ayr







Hungerford by Shipley MRS EM gauge

This is my number 1 and just beats Overlord as far as I am concerned due mainly to the fact that I lived in Hungerford for '73 to '84 and although the layout is set in the 20's (and before anyone says anything ..it was before my time) I could relate to some of the features. Had a good chat with the guy who, I think, was instrumental in getting the layout off the ground and it brought back some very pleasant memories of my earlier life. The scenery and building works work was of the highest calibre. The whole layout was very colourful with the backboard scenes handpainted depictions of the town main street etc. Another GWR (what is it about GWR !!!!) but even allowing for that ENJOY ....









That is it folks .... I hope you enjoy them and it was great to meet up with Lawrence again and meet his father who is also a keen modeller.

Thanks for taking the time to read my ramblings

Happy Modelling

Matt

I have done the Phill one for you Matt. Is the other one that with the diesels? If so will it be one on it's own?

Thanks for showing us all the photos. I recognise a couple of these from the St Andrews exhibition two years ago including Almond Bank. I have also seen the Mullertal one in CM before. Some nice stuff there. The Overlord layout is fantastic and probably my favourite although I do rckon that's a German sub.

Robert

Yes you are correct ... it is the one with the diesels which is in the middle of Overlord and should be stand alone and should be entitled "Marchday at Westpark"

Neil

You are also correct ... according to the blurb in the handout it was a captured U boat but don't have the details with me at present but will post them when I get home tonight.

I thought so, their subs are a bit different to ours. However kits are a bit more readily available. :wink:
