    I suppose we could place them in front of the layout then it would all look in perspective:)).

    They are of coarse Peter Hunts famous doll's houses.:thumbs:.

    More progress has been made this weekend, not only are both wagons now built they are both in primer and should be top coated later in the day.

    Oh yes you are... you can tell S7 from 0-FS!!!! The next step?

    Well, you are going to York at Easter methinks? Just watch out for the tap on the shoulder, the plain brown envelope thrust in the pocket... and the invitation to build a tank engine or maybe a turnout. After all, there are at least three entries for the S7 Challenge from the East of Anglia.

    Progress is being slowly made. The transfers are on and the underframes have been sprayed with a gunge mix as a prelude to weathering.

    Buffers have been fitted to the 12ton van but I need to blacken the coal wagon buffers yet.

    Colin, do you want the Parkside 3 links fitting or have you a 'posher' version of coupling planned for Love Lane?

    The WMR meet on Sunday saw quite a few members turn up, not a lot of work done but a lot of chat, general pee taking and laughter.
    I posted here as the the photo's feature Love Lane which as can be seen a few mock ups are in place to get a feel of how the scene will look.
    Visiting loco's are Tony's '31 in proper livery and oriental Stanier 8f . Phill also had his 31 in blue and an 03 which I have in my possesion in pieces for conversion to S7:D.
    Mick had an 08 in mid construction also.

    I thought he looked more like Peter Stringfellow's Dad but no they must be the same age so it's his Brother.......:))

    How hurtful :D we've spent hours tidying it to arrive at it's present pristine condition! Off to do some more wiring now, only one baseboard to go and then the point motors can be fitted.
