I've had a couple of hours on the diorama, I'm comparing three makes of terraced house rears, Metcalfe is out in the lead at present by a long way. The Superquick version is flimsy and has poor instructions although includes glazing but basics only. I'll add some detail to spruce it up a bit. The tram track section embedded in the cobbled road looks much better now i place on the layout. I'm going to start the first concrete bus shelter kits and see how it all measures up for space on the diorama. I've a few more parts coming in from John Howe at Buxton, Kingsway models. We got the Polio Fellowship magazine, the article I did for Mandy has been included in full and fills up some space where material is getting thin. I hope to call by at Portsmouth and Fareham on our way home on Wednesday, it should be sunny and those two can cope with sunny weather ok in late autumn. It has been far too wet for gardening but the grass needs another mow.
So we are away until Wednesday night, all orders received next two days go out Thursday but don't let that worry you, we'll soon get them shifted. I'm now using some of the sales stock that was ready for the rallies that never happened, that speeds me up a bit. plenty of gin and beer in the cupboard so all set for Christmas. As we will be in South East it seems only right to have some photos from Hampshire.
