However, I'm afraid work will be getting in the way of more important things over the next few days so the roof is going to have to be neglected.for a while. I'm looking forward to painting it though.
In the meantime, I have a bad case of what can only be described as modeller's block. There is a space on the layout, behind the chapel (on the other side of the tracks) and to the left of the castle, which is crying out for something. But I don't know what. It's sort of triangular - 300mm across the base (adjacent to the castle) and 500mm to the apex (adjacent to the tracks). What should fill it? Here are three photos to put the space in context.
I thought about a park with a bandstand (improbably near the noise of trains but that wouldn't matter - it's only pretend and no one would actually have to play there) or perhaps a row of low relief cottages with their back gardens but neither idea is really compelling at the moment. If anyone has an inspiration or suggestion, I should be delighted to hear!
