....just can't stop one hand shaking ....

Mike - the way to help prevent this is to either have a couple of whiskeys first.....alternatively, what I do is to extend a finger (usually third finger) from each hand and put finger tip to finger tip. This then will help steady each hand against the other. reducing any shakiness. It'll feel clumsy at first, but you get used to it!

Cheers Doug, Drink and the pills i'm on don't mix.
Unfortunately my body is telling me it's older than it really is.
Look forward to the new order of bits that you hopefully received earlier today.
Might have to trim the finger nails back as well. :D

Foamboard just purchased to make the baseboard, also some more glue sticks for my glue gun. A trip to Hobbycraft that was successful for once.
Also got another storage box that I can keep all my buildings in until I am ready to use them.
Revised size layout will be A1 sheet cut to 350mm wide with Sheet will be shortened to 800 long and 250mm approx. high backboard( Most likely just the height of the off cut).

Pictures of my latest job Class 205 DEMU in BR blue/grey and Class 150/1 Sprinter DMU in Regional Railways colour scheme.
I definitely prefer the class 150/1 in the flesh although for some reason it was a poorer picture.

Thanks Jerry, that is rather how I felt, fortunately the white is acrylic paint so should come off easily.

Next epic production about to start- that tiny brass signal box kit in 1/4 hour stints no more than that or the brain can't cope. :roll:

Tiny grey cell struggling with the signal box trying to get the interior assembled and painted first.
Having a break from that at present and finally finishing assembling some Scalelink Electric pylons that will be 90mm high (actual) when finished.
The pylons were not cheap but originally bought to go in the background on a Z scale layout but as they say the scale is 1/400 or 1/500 approx build them as intended. Part No SLAF30 for those interested.

a few more work in progress pictures. Most are of Doug's excellent 3d printed models (all in the Talking T Gauge Shop) but also some of my etched brass models as well.
