Received the latest RF from Brooklands Bus Museum , I don't think I ever saw it advertised but I got a flyer as I'd bought from them a few of the specially commissioned models, I think the ST was the last one and very nice it was. This one looks equally smart
We went down the tip and got rid of stuff that wouldn't fit in the bin and several cardboard boxes etc. My main achievement this morning was to get the sky finished on the diorama which needed some touching up of the top, never done a model with actual overhead sky, usually it has been above the backfrop which is also the case just that it is high up and to look at it the shelf above would be so out of place thus it is now 1/76 scale sky. I actually took a few shots out of the window to finish it off, we have a very fast moving/ changing sky, very windy and at times wet other times sunny. Fingers crossed that the week ahead will have 2 or 3 days suitable for photography. Well we have created some shelf space in the office and actually have a few empty shelves, they never stay that way long. Here is the office if you have forgotten what it looks like.
The display and editing suite room is not so neat as I am of course in mid construction of diorama phase two.
I know you have seen it all before but there may be some newbies joined us since I constructed the shelf units for the dioramas, the other side has received one mirror screw each to ensure nothing bad happens to the perspex, ie falling out. Todays slide show moves on to Bolton.
I received the first batch of birthday cards today more to the point though it is a big birthday for Mandy on 29th March. We have ordered a cake and we are having a party in the PMP gazebo in our back garden with our neighbours either side. Mandy isn't on anything like facebook but cards are welcomed and I can pass on emails to Mandy. My card to her must definitely doesn't have a big 70 on it but next year I shall have no modesty.
