This project has been on the back burner for a while since since my other thread on this forum, but a rash promise to get it ready for Mr. Casten's 2013 Larkhall lark has galvanised me into action for the coming winter months. I've done a couple of low relief buildings for the end of the layout where the track appears from the storage cassette and these,together with the station building and a couple of walls, give the layout a very white appearance. This will be rectified when I figure out how to replicate the 'stucco' finish on the building walls which the French seem to like. Also I've had a etched sheet done for a coach and wagon underframe (basic) on which is also some handwheels, wrought ironwork for the coach balcony ends and a small selection of loco nameplates. Out with the plastikard again to do the bodies for the underframes. Whilst all this was going on I still had no idea of what to call the finished station/layout..... I wanted something 'different' and not to go down the ' allo-allo' path.....in the end the solution came quite unexpectedly. Last month my youngest son was marrieds in London, we went down and stayed in a small hotel in Hampstead which was.....'La Gaffe'...........loosely translated as a mistake,blunder or co*k up...... brilliant!!....and that was it, a 'eureka' moment. Already it's lived up to its name as when the underframe etch came back I spotted that I'd co*ked up some polylines on the artwork and some fold lines had thus not appeared....DOH!
