You're doing really well considering the pain you're constantly under....and I don't blame you for taking a day or two off. And I'm not ashamed to publically admit that I thought you were secretly 3D printing your buildings..when you were actually scratch building them!! :oops: :oops:

Best thing is to keep warm and keep doing the "Scrooge" hand exercise to keep your hands and fingers moving!

Trouble is Doug, I like to try and do something everyday to stop myself getting bored. No I am not even attempting wheels on the Artic you sent me :shock: :shock:

Struggling with pictures of a couple of buildings. 50 years have passed since the railway was there,and modern alterations have been done to the buildings looking at Street view on Google Maps. :(
Think artistic licence will have to be used :shock:

:D :D :D Warm enough to go outside and spray what I have built so far in primer.
:( Discovered a few bits that looked fine that need fettling.
Just got to leave for 24hrs before I do anymore to those bits (like the primer to have properly dried )

Bits that need fine tuning are joins on the ridges of roofs and a couple of wall joints.

Yes. That surprised me...as I had to go up to Crich for a meeting. But the sun didn't last that long......clouded over mid afternoon, then went very gloomy!

Next building in the sequence going from the pub towards Bridge Road now built.As it backs onto the wood I have used artistic licence regarding the back of it. Think there should be more of it like a second floor but cannot get a decent picture of it from google maps. :roll:

I don't want to build the modern structure that is behind where the goods shed was, so may leave a space there.
Work in progress on Bridge House which is the big house on the bend next to where the footbridge was.

Mike

A good tip would be to select one building that you know is correctly scaled....and then use that as a reference for all other building builds by comparing heights/widths as you mark out new ones.
