And so they should be Dave, you deserve the recognition.
With regard to the case, is the locomotive depicted stuck down or do you put it in the case when it is at rest? The case that is, not the locomotive.  :lol:  :lol:

I just plonked it in the case. I suppose I could cut a hole in one end and fit a fiddle yard..... NO NO NO dont go THERE !!!

I will be fitting lights into the buildings in the case along with a working signal gantry so that will definatly be eye catching! :cool:

I think the case is a brilliant idea Dave because it's working for you even when you are relaxing with a cup of coffee. Is there anywhere you can put your company logo to show whose work it is.

I presume that you are refering to the brickpapers Alan? I use bostik as it drys quickly and dos'nt affect the print. ;-)

Will the case remain see-through Dave or will it finish up with interchangeable backgrounds to suit whatever is on display?

Going to leave it see through Robert. The top shelf will have a signal box fitted along with a signal gantry and a few other bits. All the buildings will be lit using a rechargable battery pack so they will stand out better!

Yesterday whilst down the town I took the opitunity to mesure the libaray. This was done by a combination of counting the bricks and working out the rest of the dimensions by comparing with the 2' square paving slabs. So far using a sheet of brickpaper I have transfered the mesurements to a piece of paper and managed to draw out the buildings footpring in 00 gauge. Work will start soon on cutting out the walls from clear acrlyic sheet so piccys soon. ;-)

Hi Dave

Have a go with Double sided tape for sticking the paper to the box - it is a lot, lot quicker

Havn't had much modeling time lately since starting work as most afternoons are now spent doing odd jobs for people! However I did finaly meet gary the rat catcher today who is a fellow railway modeller! He is also the seceratery of the perth green model railway club in Jarrow who are having an exhibition in december. Looks like yours truly may be going as an exibitor with the westcoast stuff. If there is enough space I might even take potters lane as a work in progress! :thumbs

Yes Brian I have been enjoying it for the past three weeks now. Have you done anything with the vinyls yet? ;-)

Ok the Jarrow exhibition has been confirmed I have half a table so dont know how big a table is but half is better than none! Still a lot to do before then as I need another building for the display case so looks like no more work on the layouts for a bit yet! :roll:

Tonight I have received final confirmation for another station building and matching canopy set. This time the station will be finished in network south east colours. No lights in this one so a fairly easy build (he says looking at the pile of junk on the workbench!) Question for Chris (or anyone else who will know) NSE livery spec on buildings? As far as I know the doors and trim are red along with the lamp posts.

The lampost should be red, along with any grass or weeds growing alongside it!  (They were painted in one hell of a rush)

The doors and trim would generally be red, but they did also use NSE blue instead in places, there was no strict rule about which colour to use!
