Re: Workshop/shed

Re: TVT - The lost Tribe

I'm in awe of anyone with model engineering skills. It's beautiful Graeme. There once was a time when an old fart like me could learn such skills in later life with night classes at local colleges. Sadly cuts in the education budget now make that rare or non existent :x Keep up the good work :thumbr...

Re: The G&DLR begins.

The tunnel portals are excellent. It's always a bit hairy when you start painting to represent stonework, and then as you add more shades/colours, it comes to life. Revell acrylics are excellent, although I've struggled to get suitable colours for stonework and yse them mainly in buildings and rolli...

Huzzah! This time I can see your pictures :thumbup:
I too have one of the railbuses (although not with a see through roof). I started remodelling it about 4 years ago - still waiting for a 'round tuit' to finish it :lol:

I'm really sorry to both him and you for not remembering who it is, someone who I think moved out to one of the Nordic countries. Postage was always goi...
