Brilliant looking so far Jim, just short of a few flying rats perched on the ledge and it is New Street.
The second set are quite nice, indeed. You will probably confirm that (with your broad turns) the amount this etching will bend will conform. As I'm sure you will do, make sure to have some covers laying aside and the cables inside visible.
I only spent a short time in London, but your scenes really brought back some wonderful memories. Other than the HSTs and the daily tube excursions, we took a local out to Slough.
Jim, your work is amazing. You are one of many I hope to someday be considered an equal.
Thanks but I dont consider myself any more or less capable than the next guy. As long as we are having fun and pushing our own boundaries (if thats what constitutes fun for us) then we are all equal. If you produce work that is less than YOU can do then what is the point in that?
Should the day come when I stop learning or improving it will be time to find a new hobby.
John Armstrong, publicly admitted that he used less than one tenth of what he taught on his own layout, the Canandaigua Southern. Said he didn't have the room. Just because he didn't use some of what he taught, did this make him any less the teacher? I don't think so.
Only 1 wall is solid the top and the other wall just fold over and are not joined to each other. So as long as the solid wall is on the inside of a bend you can bend it as tightly as you like - even 180 degrees between sections if you wanted - yes it would look rubbish so I don't know why you would want to. When I am next home (monday) I will curve a run and take a picture for you.
