The Groudle coaches made a public appearance at the National last Saturday, and can be seen in post #51: https://www.gscalecentral.net/threa...ow-peterborough-2021-whos-going.317011/page-3
Thanks for pointing them out, I have to say they do look rather nice.

The only other stock I have from the island just now is an MNR van that needs repaint in to MNR livery. Once I have the present projects cleared from the bench the next project will be some Groudley Glen coaches.

Northsider you have been inspiration indeed, having procured a 7/8ths scale model of Sea Lion I suppose it was inevitable that I would build some coaches at some point, after going through a couple of books I've decided to build 5 coaches representing the 5 main variants, okay a couple of the variants only had different valances but they are different enough for me.

Thank you for the off line assistance, its all been extremely useful, I'll post something to show what your inspiration has influenced once I have a bit of progress, thanks.

That's the five roof valance variants made, they are all slightly over size to allow some trimming when I do the trial fit before painting and varnishing.
