Hi Zak,
Great stuff.
Bempton, better not be cut of too long at anytime.
It just allows your creative and high output skills to flow.
We might need a bigger Telford this year!!
Good as always,
Bigkev.
I hope my next is always better

Hi Zak,
Oooooh I like that.
I have built several of the Airfix 1/72 models but none looked as good as that,
Watching this thread with interest.
Cheers,
Bigkev

You are to buildings what Haddock is to ships - blush away.

At the moment I am busy re-roofing the Motor Transport sheds with corrugated iron.
I made this from Aluminium trays, the sort from ready meals.
I scribed on the corrugations and cut it up into scale sized sheets.

At least YOU have got the panels on the correct way round.

I have redone the roof again, happier with it eventually.

Here is a David Brown Tractor VIG. 1/462.
Still needs decals.
I will not get any proper modelling done for the next week.
Off to Halifax tomorrow hopefully.
Then granddaughter is here all next week.
So I am trying to get things to a state so that I can clear up and do some modelling with her. She is 6!

That should improve the quality of your finished models - hohoho - I know I will pay for that at a later time.
Enjoy Halifax and have a good week after that

Hi Zak,
What element of the diorama are you going to let her do?
