Hi John, many thanks for the kind words, yeah I am nearly there at leas all the track base decking is already cut, all I have to do is set the curved sections in place and use the level jig to get the spiral legs cut to the right height.
I don't know if I be starting on the spiral before Christmas, have to modify the bridge between the front corner and first station module, I should of done in the first place, with that bridge extension on the module, made it pretty heavy to pic up and move around.
Was going to do that yesterday but didn't feel too well, Tuesday job, it has being raining pretty heave here all day , probable what you copped over the weekend in Victoria.
I will measure and cut the new replacement before pulling up the track and wiring and cutting flush the two extensions, it would of being hard also to plug up the bus wires, not a good design at all, plugs be at the end of both modules up in under the bridge.
I have decided to get rid of my wood lather not using it much now, donated it to the Ipswich men's shed and tools I used to do the turning, now have space in the garden shed to store the modules. Wife was cracking off about the modules I had outside while working on the layout, had to make her happy, wasn't planning to leave any outside while we where away any way, looks a lot more open now, plus we are having trouble with snakes, are there snakes in England.
Good news on the ship modelling I finely got sent the ship plans of the Ro, RO ship I am modelling waiting for my brother in law to print out the ship line drawing didn't know how to use DWG format, excited, no more need to guess, amazing what you get when you ask nicely.
More pics tomorrow after I build the new bridge, need to buy more under coat.
Yeah we sure are looking forward to our holiday my mum said she books a good room that has full view of the ocean on the forth floor, another weeks holiday being offed to us for next March down the Gold Coast for a week have taken that up as well.
Best wishes to you and your family for Christmas and New Year 2018 too John
