Neil, Paul.
Looks very good and a lot simpler than some of the other ideas that were being floated around at the Sandown exhibition. wink.gif

Not really familiar with other ideas floated as I am a pretty new member / resident over here. Just that Neil and I see each other at least once a week and I had all the stuff to build a baseboard with including all the track, road base, wire and even the choccolate block connectors. The only expenditure was the speaker box terminal connector which was from memory about $5 from Jaycar. The rest of the scenics I think Neil had too.

Anyway it starts the process off and if others are inspired to add to or exceed then so much the better in my book.

Should be running a new 4MT on it this weekend with any luck courtesy of our friends at DCC Concepts in Perth and Yes Jeff, there's always room for you to educate me about the finer points of diesel sound too. I am becoming quite interested in those green and blue things you know!

I think that's a certainty Jeff. thumbsup.gif It should be ready in a couple of weeks so we can take it to the next show. Might be sooner but you never know. wink.gif

Yes Manfred, you can't afford to overdo it in such a small space.

I'm happy with the green ones.

Did a bit more today. Added a backdrop (still need to print off the picture) and weathered the rails. I also autumised the trees but they are drying in a box.

Sorry, they've all been cancelled!! wink.gif wink.gif

I think the next major one is (usually) on the Queen's Birthday weekend in June. I'll try to check that.

Excellent work guys and that back scene really sets it off.

Do you have access to a big A0 printer Neil, and what sort of paper do you use ??

Thanks guys, hopefully it will, along with the sound locos, generate a bit of interest in model railways.

Trevor, it is just A4 printer paper. There are five sheets of A4 used on this albeit very carefully edited and applied.

cheers

Neil
