FLOODS , PACKING, LOADING TO YOUTUBE
Awful weather today, heavy deluge of rain - drenched in garden as I put new plants which arrived this afternoon in the borders, no problems with watering them in. Spent ages sweeping away the flooding water from the back. I've now sussed out what the constant problem is, the people who put the extension in ran the down spout from the main roof onto the shortest stretch of gutter which empties into soak away in the back garden which is a tad lower than the top of the drive. If I re route it to the gutter which discharges at the front it will just go down the drive and into the main drains under the road. I've been getting some clips for Youtube sorted, the plan is to make the old master tapes into digital and on the shop but upgraded to HD and 50 fps. Then all of it goes on Youtube as short clips. The overseas truck material get a lot more hits and the top 10 ever are all truck films. So it makes sense to get them to a wider audience. Here are some shots in Australia, the clips on Youtube are mainly lorries at Darwin and Alice Springs although there are a few tram shots from Melbourne. Using the masters it is always a bit of a mix including scenics.
Another thing I did was to get a batch of the printed 3D 1/76 people on to the dioramas. There were figures to go on several of the layouts, on the whole I was pleased with the results although getting them from sprues sees quite a lot of amputations! Here they are as painted, a random example.
