Looks great Jeff - lots of time and patience required for that, both of which are in short supply at my end!

Jeff

This is an interesting and innovative use of the old Airfix/Dapol kit.  I've seen many versions but this is a new approach.  Watching with much interest.

Sorry Ron,

I am fairly renowned for having no patience whatsoever! I once had to take an internal modem back to PC World after I tried plugging it into the computer myself. (Plug and play - yeah right).  I got so annoyed with it when it would not slot in that I ended up hurling it in the open fire. As it started to warp and blacken it occured to me that it was a £100 modem and I managed to get it out again before it completely melted. The Saturday minimum wage work experience boy that took it back off me asked what was wrong with it as he held this molten shape up to the light and I just said "Well look at it, how could it ever have worked!"

None of my model railway gear has ended up in the fire yet but I do have a Bachmann tamper that needs a decoder fitting...

Cheers Novice, this one has been a lot of fun and needed a lot of thought.

 For anyone who's wondering, I should have said that although I used the Dapol kit, it's in no way put together in the way that Dapol suggest. Indeed, in many places the parts are not even left together as they were moulded, as to fit the location many cuts, dimension adjustments and re-glueing has had to be undertaken.

Anybody want to make me an offer on a pile of footbridge offcuts?? :lol::lol::lol:

No doubt, some of you will immediately see the deliberate mistake!!

I've been staring at that excellent photo for 10 minutes Jeff - and I can't.
As for re-cladding the wall in wood: If it was there before the steps (and we may assume it was) then the use of two materials works.

Sorry Tim, I may have been a little unclear in my post. It's the inner side of the steps that I'm talking about cladding with the wood. At the moment you can see the steel section that forms the steps, but I wonder if it would be better clad with the wooden planking.

The deliberate mistake is the steel section of the sides showing!!

PS  I've now altered the misleading part of the post!!!:roll:

I'm with you Jeff. It's just not right as is. Steel or wood, not both.

i would remove the wood against the wall leaving the metal. i think this would look better than the wood on the inside. the brickwork showing through would look good.

I think it works either way for me Jeff, but I think I could be swayed into moving the cladding to the inside, especially as it would not be me having to move it!
