Of course, I used to wonder why as well when I joined.

There is an understanding about using someone's else's photo from the web. Under the heading of " permitted use " a photo may be used for discussion as on here. Fair dealing is the term used.

We tend to use the term as I described, " for discussion only " I suppose it really meaning that we are not profiting from the use of the photo.

Hope this explains why I mentioned it, it just covers you , being polite really. I have yet to have read anywhere of someone being in hot water over using photos like we do.

Evening on this very windy night. Hope our fellow modeler in NI Marty is ok .

Scottie........ Yes these little things, just came upon them on e bay by chance, when I saw Tamiya I knew they would be ok.

Kevin..... Right there .

Hooch....... Thank you.

Joe...... I used Amig , some of the rusts, a little red from Vallejo, and some grey powder pigment .HTH

Fernando......... You know I never thought of that, I have a bottle and usually only use it for tracks. Like the idea of the refillthumbs up.

Onward and in the case of building upwards.




Just pinned together to give me an idea for the roof line.I need to add a parapet along the top edge as the roof came down behind . Down pipes were the fed by openings in the parapet from an internal guttering. Now I can mark out for the damage in the roof , remove the top , remove the paper cover and mark out the tiles, then cut the board. While this is together I can also measure for the joist lengths. Then every thing comes apart ready for painting, and I have to do the other building as well laugh.

To day the metal arrived, I want this to hold parts while gluing, I have some magnets from Ebay on the way, thanks to Jim who sent me a link for those.


4 bars and a metal plate.Of course they can be moved any where and could be stacked if required.

Thanks for following along, comments welcome.

Joking apart I have to say your reuse of bases is great, in this one the flattened drum is a real eye catcher along with the rubble making a perfect platform. The placing of the figures and neddyare spot on .
