Apart from the deserts of Theobroma Cacao   [O.K., I admit, I had to look that one up] can anyone else see what [potentially] I can see?  [Hint - I have checked, it does 'stick' with MEK to styrene....]

This may be either

a.   One of the great Doofer moments of railway modelling history

b.   A great big fer-lop............


Discuss.





Parsimonious (Yet Train-pack spending and hence terrified) Doofer

I've always used them to store pots of Humbrol - easy to see what you have got and where it is.

Sometimes I would even wait until Mrs BoD had finished the sweets ..... but not often.

Looking forward to seeing what happens to this.

What a great mixture of shining wit and imagination! Yup, I think it has all the hall-marks of a good canopy. If I can devise convincing layout of glazing bars etc it should do the job nicely.

If that box was in Mevagissy, it would form the basis of a small scenic competition : http://www.model-railway.co.uk/ferrero-rocher-competition/index.shtml

:Red Card  Don't go there............

He chooses a particular place in the garden and uses it repeatedly, which is good for the clearing up. However, he occasionally chooses a new spot, but you don't know where it will be.

Yesterday I found it first go!  Right where you put your foot when opening the gates to go out in the car, sadly I didn't realise until the heater had warmed up.........


AAaagh!
