Some more progress.
Lovin' that herbaceous border. Very nice.
All grown from seed Heather
Just made some flower baskets.
This is a lovely model railway
Telegraph posts, station lights, people and seats added.
Those flower baskets are really lovely, a great splash of colour set against the relatively sombre buildings. Actually, I'm not sure I mean sombre but rather the contrast between nature's colourful riot and the restrained tones of the man made stuff.
As John says, this is a really nice model railway. It has a feeling of authenticity, exudes a sense of time and place and I get the strong feeling I am seeing things as they were, observed by you and now re-created many years later - the ultimate kind of model railway experience I think.
Thanks Simon, I think it does help the model, being there at the time.
Goods and storage sheds built.
Just come across these oldies shot with light painting technique.
Here's the new station in situ.
A shock for me this morning as Pen-y-Bryn is re-visited again in Model Rail magazine and with a cover picture, I wasn't expecting it for a while
I've only just caught up with this thread. I like detail work on the station building Phil, very convincing .
BTW, there's a double page full picture of the front cover inside the magazine but it's only a teaser as the main article will be out in the new year.
Here's an addition to an old project.
Engine, radiator, starter motor, dynamo, coil, distributor, regulator, battery, gear stick, dash with dials, door handles in and out and double wishbone with suspention strut were added to the Popular, and probably a few other things that I've forgotten!
Wow, just WOW!
Lovely detail modelling. Very envious of you being able to see and work at such small scales, because I struggle nowadays.
If I may, though, point out the Ford E series had a single transverse leaf spring for each axle as suspension. The later 1953 three-box Anglias and Prefects had independent front suspension. I suppose you could say the old banger had been upgraded by a previous owner before finally being scrapped.
