Wow! You did an awesome job on your layout! Keep it up! I really like the tunnels and the bridges you made. Can't wait to see it come alive!

I've not posted on this thread for a while!! :?

And as Robins Run is making an appearance at the Great Central Railway Model Show in just over a week, I thought I'd get the village area a little more complete...and practise my painting techniques in readiness for the long slog of painting 400 models for The Bridge. :shock:

Here's the village shops, bank and pub, along with one of the sets of town houses...minus the roof colour:

All painting done freehand after a couple of strong coffees!! 8-)

Superb buildings! Looks like a nice little high street! Hardly prototypical though as I can't see a single Costa... ;)

I took some video at the GCR event. Once I get chance to edit the bits together, I'll post to YouTube and put up a link.
