    welcome to WT, layout looking very good. Could I make a request that you post your photos full size rather than thumbnail when you make your next posting.

    All the above! The glimpse of the warehouse interior is intruiging. Would love to see more of that too.

    Terrific work, just what Gauge One needs, probably:rolleyes:

  9. Thanks all I’ll post some more images soon. The hanger holds a Tank factory/ workshop . It has benches , an office and even a toilet.
    I also have a railway workshop.
  10. More images as requested. They show the separate railway workshop and the interior of the hanger.
    Plus one of four SR flat wagons I’m building.

    The hanger interior is very impressive, what are you going to fill it with - Valentines ?

    All sorts I started this layout out of a whim as I make a lot of 1/35 models so I thought I’d make my own tank factory to put parts in as I built stuff, hence the Leyland retriever in the hanger at present. Though this will be a depot truck in my own livery. Which is sort of a cross between RAF and navy ..sort of.

    As you may know, the Tank Museum at Bovington, they have a representation of a tank factory, although a bit modern with Centurian vehicles.
    Incidentally there is a model show at the TM this coming weekend 28/29 Sept.
