..thought they were recruiting agents for the Taliban, but on closer inspection it was only Baseboard Dave and Dartman Owen. really enjoyed the chat and the banter there lads! Owen was so good at his salesmanship that he got a deposit for one of his dart units from me without even opening his mouth!!

anyhu, on to the layouts..

Right, finally sorted out a few pics from a couple of weeks ago...





Dave, Heirflick and Murrayec.



Eoin's development stages - possibly to emerge in 1/76th, also..



Last minute adjustments....








The lovely, though slightly risqué, quarry layout - if you've ever wondered where track rubbers come from, or where they go when they're worn out....
