Wot I built
Uploaded 27th May 2012
A few pictures of the finished GWR weighbridge and office now that the guttering and downpipes have been finished and attached. The brackets are made by getting 2 pieces of 1mm copper wire, wrapping them round the pipe, and then twisting together to form a spigot. This is then trimmed to length, some holes drilled into the brickwork, and the brackets glued in place.
Looks pretty good i think........................mmm. That's only my opinion!!!!!
Well, enjoy having a look anyway.
PS. I've now removed the brown marks off the window frames. (See pic 2)
Well, we all make mistakes sometimes don't we?

The next set of photographs show something unusual for me to construct.
The kit is from Lasercraft who are based in Plymouth, Devon. This is just one of the range they produce, and is made from laser-cut MDF. If you want a further look at what they produce, go to the "Useful Addresses" page at the head of this page, and check them out. I think you will be suitably impressed. The scale is 7mm to the foot, which is round about 1/43
The model is of a typical goods yard weighbridge and office, which were numerous in the days before nationalisation of the country's railways. I still have to fit the guttering and downpipes yet, but thought you might like a look at what I've been doing lately.
Enjoy the pictures.................... Graham.
