It were.  I actually left a few bits off mine, so Sol's is a better example.

Looks pretty competent to me. Not a kit I've ever come across but then it's not something I've gone looking for either.

Oh! You poor gullible lot! That's no loco hoist, it's a 1/4 scale model of a SWMBO  pie-crust lifter......:mutley

The footprint measurements in old money are. 
Internal width between concrete bases .    2"
external inc reel platform and ladder on the opposite side   4"
Length of concrete bases2 3/8"
height to top of handrail. 6"
 The base width wise is a bit springy so can be tweaked a little .

This thread was from back in 2010, it cropped up again due to picture of the month ?

Max popped out for a pint of milk a  while ago and spotted somebody flying a model airplane, decided to have a go

and ever since has been 'buzzing' the neighbors  :mutley

You might wait a while for an answer   :thumbs

Cheers

Matt

Don't be sorry ! Its great visiting threads from YMRC's past, there is great content and loads of useful information stored away and some fantastic photos as well. Peter running a picture of the month competition is encouraging members to rummage deeper into the stored history for that 'Special' picture   :doublethumb

I must say though we are also getting some fantastic NEW content  creating Hot competition for that once a month pride of place spot at the front of YMRC  :Happy


( Psst I do hear a rumour that all it takes to win is to cross Peter's palm with a couple of pieces of silver, well a couple MORE than your nearest competitor anyway  ;-)

 That reminds me. " PETER do you accept wine vouchers ???"     :cheers



Cheers

Matt

Listen up you guys - I'm no cheap-skate !  :It's a no no

This picture from this thread was selected by the members as "Picture of the Month" for March 2021



Whilst not published in the actual layout thread, it is from the "Nickel Saucer Road" built by MaxSouthOz and can be seen here:

Hi Ron.  Terrific model, but, it would be too big for my four foot layout . But I am looking for inspiration to put a bit of life into my plank, I did have some great ideas? Originally I wanted a coal yard, but I have laid an extra track in the way unless I have a level crossing, but this is getting silly. Never having even ballast on previous layouts , this time I have started laying it , I had begun to build an engine shed, alas the Airfix/Dapol kit was a bit wonky, coal bins, a small shed, and weigh Bridge would fit, if not out of place? Have you got any advice? Best wishes Kevin
