Great to see you have finally taken the plunge and have tackled the layout at last.

Good luck on its development, I’ll be watching out with anticipated interest of what’s to come.

Oh be still my beating heart! Nope, all is well. Things progressing tastefully at the mo (i.e. not at a grinding halt). Ammo & 42' test etches being finalised. The 'dergmeister has been very helpful too...

Messing around to see whats the best way to store them

Coaches on their roofs looks a good option, wheels dont snag and they can be handled by the bogies rather than by their bodies

Ouch! Sounds like something the heavy gang did with the "likely lads" back in the day.....course you'd be too young to remember that Dave ;)

 

 

Back on topic, they look like a great idea. I could see a perfect spot for them in SSM Corporate Headquarters.....

Presidential is a Baccy 57' LMS jobby, similar to the Irish Bachmann range

The rest are Airfix/Dapol 60' composites and a 57'Brake

Great to see Hazelwood back on the Site and having Maedhbh as you lead photograph was a great introduction to your latest additions. Seeing you are now resting from your strenuous Moderator duties time to get on with that layout. I want to see a video of Maedhbh going round Hazelwood -soon!

That's a huge transformation on the weedspray set Dave, it looks really good. I have to agree about the older weedspray coach also, I prefer it to the converted GSV van. Having said that it is probably the MK1 van that I will go for myself as it fit's more into the period I will be modelling. Smashing stuff.

I have to agree with the comments about the spray coach. The obvious question is why didn't you opt for the 4w spray wagons to go with this coach instead?

I much prefer the 42' wagons with 2 tankers Stephen

And the old jem, its my layout and I'll run what I likes!

Can't say fairer than that. Anyway, the spray coach is a beauty - your handiwork or a third party's?

Handywork is not a word that is often associated with me unfortunately

Look closely at the background and the builder will be easily revealed :cool:
