Well one of the highlights of the show for me was meeting Ben Jones of model rail who realy liked my buildings so much in fact that he is thinking of doing an artical on how to model the west coast main line with a plug for my website !! :cool: Anyway my order book is starting to fill up at the moment with my main problem now being lack of funds to buy some much needed equipment to do the jobs. One of the problems that I have with the foamex sheet is getting straight cuts using a knife so I have been looking into getting a band saw. This would speed up the building process and also improve the quality of the finished building so it is definatly worth me investing in one. I just wish that the tax and test wern't due on my car ! :sad: On a more positive note I will be doing some work at my brother in law's signwriting place over the next couple of weeks so that meens more supplies of building materials and extra funds. Today I mentioned to him about another business idea custom made control panels. Now he has the latest version of the signwriting software my idea can now become a reality. I plan to produce model railway control panels as a jpeg image and then he can print them off and mount them to clear perspex sheet. These can then be backlit as required and hopfully the finished panel should resemble the ones found in real signal boxes. :cool: :thumbs

I'll second exactly what Reg said Dave - when you've got some ideas, let me know too. :thumbs

Glad you enjoyed the show - you and your team did sterling work with the modules - and that the order book is filling up. A plug from Ben Jones could well mean you'll have to buy another book. :lol::lol:

If you go back a few months, I seem to recall a few people telling you to have a go...................:roll::roll::roll:  Let's hope this is the seed of something big.:cheers

Just make sure you do not undersell yourself and charge a proper price for these models Dave.

That BiL's Signwriting equipment could prove very useful for your work, Dave.
Perhaps another string to your business with mass produced signs and labels.

Dead right Chris - to undersell is just a fool's game and the only winner is your customer.

You MUST get these prices right Dave - "hobby job" or not.  If not, you'll end up going like a train just to put a slice of bread on your table - you're not doing it for fun, you're doing it for money.  There's plenty of people (leaches) waiting in the queue to take their slice long before you get what's left (if any !!!)

After much pratting about on the PC with anyrail I found that the only way to get what I wanted was to try and do it myself so what do you think ...?



 
In all honisty this is about a quarter of the size of the real panel. Not sure about how a double slip is done properly??

From the pics I have seen of real boxes the running lines are marked out with either brown/green stripes or blue/yellow ones. Im hoping that one of our signaling guru's can give me some pointers as I realy want the finished panel to be an accruite miniature of the real thing (minus the train discribers!). Once finished I will get it printed and mounted to the underside of a sheet of perspex.
