No probs. Herb !

Just don't try and order any 'Lexan' if you're over Britania side of the pond !

I wondered what the hell that stuff was for YEARS !!!!!

Turns out ( as I'm sure YOU know ) it's just Polycarbonate sheet !

" Doaaaahhh " as Homer Simpson would say !

Anyhow...
...back to the railroadin' !

Cheers

Si.

PS
Polycarbonate...
...can be good for 'rivulets'...
...but NOT 'rivets'.

Close...
...but NO ceeegar !

Not too often do I see a train based in Norway, especially in the far North! This will be an interesting railway to follow and i can't wait to see it finished. Good luck with the project, and keep the photos coming.

How is Vestvagoy progressing-- Harbor scenes hold a special fascination for me.

No as fast as I want. I was delayed by finishing my last project "the woolacombe bay" and also by the realisation of a panzer IV at 1/16 scale for my brother.


I have complete the study of the project with the visit of numerous harbour for taking photos of harbour and details of the boat.

I just start the building of the boat.

As soon as I will have some photos of the progress I will post it.

Frank the plexi works great.

You can place it over a painted area, or paint the underside for depth effects.

You can also add small ripples here and there with slightly thinned Modge Podge and a paint brush tapping in select areas. ( Even calm seas have some ripples from the breeze. )

Looking forward to see what you come up with here.

I start the layout just after I came back from Midland Railex where I have validate during the 2 days of exhibitions that I can have fun with 3 tracks only and a transfer table.

So now I can built my new layout
