Many thanks to all for the kind comments, in truth this is as close as I have ever got to finishing a 'layout', nothing like a crazy deadline to keep you focused!!!

I am currently building some Low relief flats for South Oak Road and will post some more images and info soon... hope to apply some of the Warley diorama gusto to this layout in 2011!!

I have a colour laser printer here so I get excellent results with good quality copier paper (80 gsm). If you are using an inkjet then 90 - 100 gsm matt photo paper will give great results. To protect the print surface of both types I would also suggest applying a couple of light coats of artist's matt spray varnish over the sheets prior to construction.

That's a good tip about the paper John.  I use ordinary cheap copy paper and sometimes get odd results.

Have you experienced any problems with photo paper delaminating ?  I'm assuming modern photo paper is all plastic coated..........:roll:

Most papers designed for inkjet including matt photo paper don't have any problems adhering to the card as the coating is not plastic based. Matt photo paper is a also good choice as it is usually only about 90 - 100 gsm which makes wrapping it around the base layers much easier. Matt paper especially with a couple of light coats of matt spray varnish also makes an excellent surface for weather powders or pastel dust to adhere to.

Just found your thread John and can put a face to the name at last. Those buildings really do look superb. I'm a great fan of your kits and have several that will be appearing on my new layout.

I model in N Gauge and I generally use linen weave paper for brickwork and marble textured paper for stonework. The linen weave paper is particularly good as it adds just the right amount of texture for N Gauge brickwork.

Many thanks for all your kind comments. I'm currently in the early planning stages of another 'trans-global suitcase scene' in preparation for a future exhibition (possibly next year). This time I'm going N, much more scenery and a working layout (Inglenook shunting plank). Since visiting Ian Morton the last time I was in the UK and running a few trains around his superb 'Hatton Parkway' I'm something of a N gauge convert!!
