Well, at Warley today I stopped by a John's stand and when I had elbowed my way through the throng I saw Doofer's warehouse and customs house.

That ain't a model, it's real, just a bit smaller than normal.

I'm just off to throw my buildings in the bin now....


I've just got back and got to agree with Ian. None of the pictures we've seen here does them justice. I'm going to have to try much, much harder to meet Doug's standards :sad:

On a more positive note, John wiffen's new pub kit looks really good and is out soon :thumbs

And very nice it is too. This is the N gauge version BTW -  4mm scale builders should be able to do better ;-)

It may well be Ron.

I didn't buy it when I was in UK recently - the queue at the tills was too long and then I forgot I hadn't bought it !!!

I did notice there was a freebie pub in it.

Ron - Yes it is - it'll be on the website later on.
Petermac - perhaps it was the new edition at the newsagent, no freebies in that one.

Anybody seen this before?



Built way back when and refreshed for Hintock. I have other shots if anyone is interested. As far as I can recall I did it without reference to JH Ahern-except possibly in my sub-concious for I remember as a boy his books and Madder Valley.

You and I know that, Nick, but I was recommending the thread to a New Member in another thread.
Thank you for your kind thought though.

Again, coated liberally with matt acrylic varnish as soon as possible to strengthen them they are now ready for a little colour touch-up on the cut edges. When dry and much stronger, a new blade cuts out any whiskers or uneveness.

4 sides per 16 panes per 6 windows plus a couple of spares equals 512 separate cuts...yech! 

S'nuff for tonight, now for some RLW..:cheers



Another option for the windows is to cut thin strips of coloured decal sheet and lay out accordingly on a piece of clear sheet. If you require a certain colour, just spray paint a clear piece of decal paper with your desired colour, (wait for it to dry) and slice strips from it.

Cheers, Gary.
