A brief intermission

I've not been able to get on with the chapel. Work keeps getting in the way, but I passed a pleasant couple of hours on the Virgin Voyager from London today reading the Iain Robinson and lnrmodels blogs. Not that VV's are at all pleasant - the seats are uncomfortable and the toilets smell - but the blogs were a satisfying distraction. The things you learn - techniques and materials that would never have occurred to me - scribed foamex for stonework or window frames from clear styrene and brasso for example.  I'm going to have hours of fun and frustration experimenting.


  1. You've got Robinson Senior to thank for the link to my blog...If I hadn't found his blog, I wouldn't have found yours ;). Thanks for the namecheck. I can recommend the technique. It certainly needs perseverance. I'm now considering investing in resin casting kit as I've about 4 or 5 metres of retaining wall to make and I don't fancy hand carving it all...

  2. Glad you're enjoying the blogosphere, Chas. I see that young whippersnapper Lee beat me to the reply :-)
