>I don't have the talent to be an artist or a musician

Well, I'm really enjoying watching each stage as it progresses; it's inspirational

I assume that CeeDee doesn't get too much of that kind of damp where he is

>short lengths of kebab sticks.
Did you have to eat the kebabs first? I'm not sure I'm that dedicated to railway modelling

>I drew them on an Excel worksheet
That's a really good idea. Is there a particular reason why you chose Excel? I would have chosen Paint myself and used the mega zoom mode to paint pixel by pixel.

I've also wondered about using a 2D CAD package for drawing backscenes of buildings.

Here's an "off the wall" idea. Make a V shaped cutting edge. Mount it in the needle holder of a sewing machine. Feed paper card through the machine on a small stitch size and the V shape edge cuts little Vs along the card.

This might be impractical but maybe it will give someone a better idea.

I tried that with the iron - she bought a new one and insisted I persisted.
