Lazy Grange Bay 3...a new start

Semi-Retired; more time for trains.
That's an unusual gable detail - which I know you will have faithfully reproduced from somewhere. A bit of a northern thing?
Which bit in particular, looks quite normal to me, not like some around here, but still normal:smiley:

Well this bit, has been unbelievable fiddly, for something that should be straight forward, a combination of different angles, and a lot of things coming together in a small space
Howvwer it is done, and I'm pleases with it... IMG_20200523_135259.jpg IMG_20200523_153127.jpg IMG_20200616_144957.jpg IMG_20200619_113712.jpg IMG_20200619_113936.jpg IMG_20200619_114000.jpg IMG_20200619_113953.jpg IMG_20200619_130021.jpg IMG_20200619_130049.jpg IMG_20200620_110206.jpg

Two questions Mike. Is the Citroen H type a Welly model? Why is there no blood on your kneeling pads?

No, it's a solido model, it's old, and 1-18th, nicely weather naturally.
No blood, because I'm good lad....
I wipes it off before jenny sees it..
It's killed me, not being able to kneel down since the fall. But healing takes time, and it's ok now, just it's normal scabby self.. 15927424026403597759171651809806.jpg

Which begs the question, what were you doing under a snooker table?

I have been pondering a few things.
I spent £70 on Windows for the wear house, which were very nice as nothing elase (as far as I know) was avalable.. I have bought crates as loads, packing cases ect..
So after meny brews,.. I took the plunge..and bought a creativity ender Pro... And the fun started.. In. a week.. From asmemble to my 1st building.. A learning curve.. Learning 3d design.. Splicing.. And how to cut a design down... And overcome a breakdown. And repair the printer.. 2 Allan screws, and it was sorted.. If I can do it....

The picture of the station, 3rd up from the bottom, has been framed so well that the 1:1 scale houses look part of the scene. It's so realistic, I had to look twice that it was actually a model, even though I knew it was:clap::clap::clap:

Upon using the black* ribbing* that I printed, it needed a *raft* to print out correctly, the raft is scrap.. With each one... But I saved them and thought they might be useful. As checker plate?? Anyhow.. They got used..
This pla, loves superglue and foambord.
Still needs 3 more sets doing for just this side... 6 for the other side I think..
