  1. Threadmark: Platform faces

    So, having had a play with plasticard I'm now most the way through making the first 700mm of platform faces. The second step in the face and the edge slabs are still to add.


    To get the recesses in the right places I previously had to work up a rodding diagram to see where the cranks and compensators should go. That was ages ago so a quick check of the calls was in order.


    Probably close enough to look like it should work...

    Sending him a note is on the list of things to do old fruit. It's this board that needs it most.

    Where will the trees for the sheep go?

    Not in the platform face. They will need somewhere to nest though.

    Not easy to photograph but the first 800mm is now in this state:

    Lower levels are abused Wills Coarse Stone, the upper two sticky out layers are strips of plasticard that have been attacked by various tools.

    Working on the brick insets:

    One for the loco release rodding.

    And a deeper one for the ground frame. IMAG0906.jpg

    Some chopping (Mozart wasn't available) out required...
