Re: Figures

Well done Rik, glad to see the female side of the population well represented. Something lacking in my figures. It can get interesting painting many figures, different hair, clothing, and hat colours without getting too repetitive, but you have captured it well.

Re: Internet "forums" are a thing of the past

That, I think, is the strength of the forum, plus the fact that it is a searchable resource. Totally agree Brian, I find myself constantly going back over past items for reference and ideas, ok the PhotoBucket debacle has meant many pics. are un-viewable but there is much info to be gleaned on here...

That will be a great camera view when settled in Rik, with the added satisfaction of running the first train over a newly re-laid section of track.

Like Andrew, that's the second time Ive seen those hoppers too, and the wonderful weathering job on the timber and metalwork. Have no doubt of your ability to weather a loco or two.
