I thought I would post this one, as the canal lock kit doesn't seem to have had a mention yet.
Some of you may have seen this diorama before as I put it up on RMWeb (washes mouth out) several months ago.

No longer in my possession - I think it now resides on a club members layout.

'Water' is a couple of coats of acrylic medium, allowed to dry before each coat. Trees are teased out poly-fibre stuck on to heather branches and sprayed.

Pub is 'plonked' on, hence the bad gap. Later it was blended in, but as always, no photo's! (hind-sight, etc...)

Shaun.

That is gorgeous!  I really must incorporate a canal scene into my next layout.  What about the Scalescenes kit?  How did you get on with it?

If I may butt in here, this is one of John Wiffens kits that rewards a careful approach*, and despite having built one or two card structures before I took the precaution of cutting out the roof parts a little oversize, making some plain copies and using them to fine-tune the final shapes. There wasn't much in it, but it made getting the joins all square. In the endI needed about an extra millimetre on the length of the main roof which marginally affected the angle of join.

I too have have built many Scalescenes kits - even wrote about my experience in the link below.  Just curious to know how others feel about them.

For me, after doing the Terraced Houses, Shops and Warehouse,  I would have to conclude that card is a medium that I'm not comfortable with.  There is nothing to stop one from using the Scalescenes kits as templates for a plastic structure.  I haven't tried that yet but I did do it with some Metcalfe and Superquik buildings.  Results can also be seen in the link. 

Cheers

John
