Mike,
I dare you!

When done, list it YKW, as a *RARE * LGB prototype...
Add a digit to the LGB series number, and get the collectors talking!

Hi Clive, thanks..
I scribe it into the foambord by hand with a 5mm flat bladed screwdriver...after marking out the morter lines in pencil View attachment 241563
If the brick height is 5mm, does that make the width approx 15mm?

Many thanks

Hi, yes , its not measured as such but its the right size I aim for , it makes marking buildings out so much easier

Thanks - I have so far viewed about 60 pages on the thread (working backwards from page 168) and have picked up loads of tips from things you or others mention, let alone the amount of pictures. I am about to embark on some building (first for over 35 years) but this time round I have the internet!!!!!

These look amazing, can I ask did you make the file for these ?
Thank you, no..I'm useless at it..its all of thingyverse, or other websites 3d stl files ect..sometimes its hidden away under gaming resources, which I think is were I found the 3d image ..for dungeons and dragons bord games..I edited out the bits I don't want and up scale the things I do...its when I'm bord at night, but not tired. Search the Internet..

How wrong they are. You only have to look at Mike’s layout to see how much modelling he has done !
