Progress on the chapel has stalled. The roof structure is done but the postie just can't get through with the slates ordered from York Modelmaking. You'd think Royal Mail would make more effort. Don't they know how important this is?
However, I have been promising to finish off the garage building for some time. It only needed "Foundry Garage" and "Flare Petrol" signs and here they are.
I've been thinking about where to place the chapel and garage on the layout (how's that for planning?) and I think I've settled on ....... here;
The problem is of course that I see something I'd love to have a go at modelling and it has to go somewhere, no matter how improbable.
And talking of improbable, I need to build an improbable retaining wall. Having seen the magnificent scribed stone effects achieved by Iain Robinson and lnr models it's an excuse to have a go. The formers for the wall are made from 3mm ply covered with air dry clay. Slow drying air dry clay! Impatient to get started. Looking again at the area to be scribed, it's a bit daunting but I'm interested to see how it'll work out. If there is no follow up post, it's all gone in the bin.
