A New Year, a New Scale...

I finally managed to extract myself from the holiday spirit of putting things off to erect the next project.

Taken with a bit of light through the window and a bit of Photoshop to hide the houses on the other side of the road seen through the window; here we have Scotswood Road which was originally built by Ian Futers the well known serial layout builder. My job is to tidy up this elderly O gauge layout which I believe dates from the 1980's by using current scenic techniques, textures and colouring etc. When complete the layout will be heading for Scotland to be used at home by its owner as well as appearing at various exhibitions.

Scotswood Road, which will have a new name in due course will be serialised in Model Rail magazine as my next major project.
