My OO layout lives in the 8'x6' shed at the bottom of the garden.

Welcome to MRF John & thanks for the pictures.

I especially liked pic' no 3 with the boarded up windows - it's these little things that bring real life & atmosphere to a layout.
Hi again John,

I've just had another closer look at those pictures & totally missed the fact that the layout is in a space of 8' x 6'. There is so much there & yet it does not look cramped at all - I think the way the sides & ceiling are painted helps.

Lot's of little extras to add the right sort of life - modelling at it's best - another layout I would love to see "in the flesh".
Looks good John - and the trackwork "flows" nicely too.
The boat & barge are looking good - look forward to watching the progress.

If I attempted to build the same & it came out anywhere near that I would be pleased too.

Although I'm no expert on fishing boats, it looks good to me & certainly captures the spiret, which to me is the most important thing.

Thanks for the details & pictures.
Excellent & very effective - I think the chips to go with them will be a challenge though !
Looking good John, very good.

Thanks for the update.

They could already be there !

Excellent progress.

They look well fed - must be the ones that had my fish !

Great work - nice to see the pics.
QUOTE (BRITHO @ 9 Jun 2008, 13:38) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>I thought that was the cats!

No - they are just about the most stupid creatures on the planet (well, mine are anyway).

What I really need is some seagull eating fish.

The clutter adds to the atmosphere well & the "smoke" looks good too.

Would certainly like to see the finished model in the flesh.
I feel the same as Robert & David, although really should not say anything because there is no way I could get even close.

It may just be the light/camera/LCD screen effect, but the texture certainly looks excellent.

Would love to see this model in the flesh (& would travel quite a way to do so).
QUOTE (Basil @ 21 Jun 2008, 15:19) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Richards point about producing some test boards for water is a good one and would help the rest of us to see the possibilities.
As Basil has seconded Richards point can I "third" it please ?
Superb John - the texture really does look good.

Thanks for producing the "how to" - it really is appreciated and shows that it would be a very good thing to have a separate section for tips & so on.

Nice tour & pics John - maybe you could start selling tickets to fund further purchase's ?

Thanks for the pics.

I'm sure the ones left at the London Docklands as orniments are all over grey/rust - I'll have a look later in the week when I go past.

Hi John,

Went past them yesterday & they are an overall grey with some rust.

I have to say that with the added detailing your crane looks superb.
