Hi Dave

I agree with Mike. Don't see anything wrong with the drawings and in fact I quite like the hand drawn style.

Cheers

Jim

Thanks guys the website will evolve depending on the direction the business goes in. Going to start on the display case today as the steam weekend is on at shildon shortly followed by the start of the local exhibitions. For the case I will be doing a model of the kidsgrove prototype building. I will be starting the half reliff building shortly once the final details have been sorted and it may eventualy appear on a new YMR members layout. ;-)

Is that a new members layout or a members new layout? It certainly reads like a new members layout.

Wot you lot like ehh!! :roll: :lol:

OK time to test the new YMR gallery. Here we have the mobile 'trade stand'!













 The idea is to split the box up into different levels so as to display a station building, signal box, a reliveried coach and some OHLE! Should prove to be intresting getting it all to fit. Once finished I will get the box sign written with the westcoast logos and see what happens at the next outing! ;-)

What are you resizing the pictures to and from Dave. Unless they are extremely large files there's no need to alter the pictures at all. The software does it automatically.

The pics were straight off the cameras memory card so were proberly quite large. I resized them to 600 x 400 as any bigger I have to scroll across the screen to see them. :roll: ;-)

Thanks John much apreciated. I actualy got wrong off one of the mods on there for even sugesting that I made models for sale hence I now have a little mark next to my name! :roll:

Ok piccy time...last night I started on the half reliff building. To give the building some depth I covered the rear wall with mirrored vinyl. The rest of the build is straight forward the only real difference is the roof section that is made from three 3mm sheets of foamex. This allows the copper wiring to be 'embedded' into the roof structure. Once the leds have been fitted into the recesses the lighting effect will be the same as potters lane and will give the impression that the lights are flush mounted into the ceiling.

Here is the rear of the building the left hand bit will be the back of the 'retail unit'




Overall view of the front. The total length mesures 14 1/2".





Here is the copper wiring for the led lighting




This shows the copper wiring extending down to feed power to the extension




Looking down showing how the building fits the small hornby platform




And finaly this shows how the mirrored back will give the building some depth




Now that the basic superstructure is glued together and set next job will be a bit of sanding to square up the edges and then work will move on to the front wall. ;-)
