We don't always get it right and , in my case, here's positive proof but, and worse still, it was published for the whole World to see !

We're not born with the ability to make stunning models Allan (I sure wasn't) and these things are evolutionary.  The man who hasn't made a mistake hasn't done anything.

Brave of you to bring this to our attention, it looks like it's from the 60s and I reckon the statute of limitations has expired.

I'm always blown away by your models and by how quickly you can do them.  I have read your articles.

John

Thanks John.

That windmill, apart from other things, was an excersise in cake cup corrugated paper holders as a way by which to model a circular pantile roof..

Anyway, after sending the article into the RM I had major misgivings over doing so and phoned Cyril Freezer up asking him not to print the article . " Too  late " he replied "It's already gone to print " !

BTW, it's not the worse photograph of it by any means !!

Allan.

You have no chance of me putting up a photo of a badly made model, mostly because I rarely take pictures, but definitely because I don't take picture of bad ones ....

 My worst? probably trying to squeeze a 850ft  curved platform station  (4 platforms, 3 sidings) into  3 ft by 2 ft, the compression was just too much.
The tallest windmill in Britain is about 100ft so that's 400mm which means yours looks small.

Hi Allan,

Bin there, dun that. Put it at the front and it would have looked a lot better. Looks like you already used forced scaling at the back.
