This is my bus garage for the diorama, designed to fit in with the availble space and allow a good number of bus to be seen. Kingsway kit then copied and garage name removed and create extra parts to widen rather than add depth, that is covered using their garage wall sheet and the interior download which give an impression of depth. Hard to get it in a photo. It is all quite sturdy and it was done while it digitised film file was being saved. There does seem to be quite a heap of card though. Next comes the roof and then detailing the interior with doors, clocking in clock , clock , notices etc. I though some pickets outside would convey the olden golden days very well, just prototype say in London or Dublin!
I treat all the cine carefully but especially so for my pal John Bishop, I can't fathom these sticky tape things, got some from China but the illustrations and writing might as well be in Chinese, oh it is. I think it was meant to be English. Anyway the old ways are often the best and you only give up one frome by splicing the old way with the special cement. It works particularly well with Kodak and thats the best and he used it right through to that day when the cine camera was laid up to rest.
I managed to get a lot of clips on to Youtube overnight. It must seem thin picking this week for DVDs but all the work has been preparation, tomorrow I'll start to file them in the main archive and then I can easily sort them to a particular location. I am still on track to do South Yorkshire, London, Sussex and Portugal. Identifying some of the collections which have a lot of rail content is hard for me, one 400' reel had about 8 locations from several preserved railways to a few seconds on the IOW tube stock. It looked rough over 40 years ago! I've been working since 8am so I think a rest is now in order. We have got all the DVDs ready for posting received up to this morning, the rest will be done Sunday evening. It is relatively quiet compared to last week.
