Last week Grant and Peter made a presentation at the joint Scalefour Society/EM Gauge Society '101 NOT OUT' skills day......





The group were delighted at the warm reception they received despite that fact that they were displaying 7mm modelling at a 4mm scale event!

A big feature of the layout will be the Russell Road backscene. We have in effect made our own 'Superquick' style low relief buildings from photos of the real house on Russell Road.

We had some etches made ....



And we assembled them ......




And now we've fitted some.................



This story is still being developed, these are not the final versions, this is still a 'work in progress'.

Here's another... the start of some new allotments ....

The van is booked! The track has been cleaned! Locos have been oiled!

Reading here we come!!

Yes, our first proper public exhibition is less than 72 hours away. ADDISON ROAD is being shown at the ALSRM show at Reading this Saturday and we would like YOU to come and say 'HELLO'.

In fact the layout is being shown as a 'work in progress' and if you like what you see why not join us? It doesn't matter if you don't live in Twickenham as one of our active group lives in Chicago, USA so distance from the clubroom is not an issue!

Seriously, our small band of modellers is always looking to recruit new members ... come and see us at Reading .... membership forms available!

Apologies for lack of postings, but we have struggled to upload photos since the Photobucket 'issue'.

Hopefully, now sorted, here is a recent photo ....
