Cheers Richard  :)

Got the pavement done for the house side and started adding details and detritus. I think a lot of the detritus could be left loose and gathered up at the end of a game (newspapers, wheels, boxes etc) but I need to add some horse manure and general dirt/shit.

I'm still drawing up the warehouse for the opposite side and I'll hopefully get this cut out this week. The intention for interiors is to keep them plain and simple so just wallpaper/painted surfaces but the warehouse will have catwalks for the two upper levels and some sort of ladder access.

Roofs still to do and I think there might be an option to have little angled bases that can sit on the roof apexes to allow for rooftop action although this might be a little dangerous for the figures  lol Lights have also been mentioned but we'll have to see about that one...

That not only looks great it looks like fast progress!

I caught a little of this on TV:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0059764/

Sherlock Holmes hunts Jack the Ripper through what looks like this terrain, with plenty of ideas for other buildings  :)

Cheers fellas  :)

I had a couple of 'me' days away from commissions and casting, it's going to slow back down again now  lol I've added that one to the list of Victorian looking films to watch and it's a long list  :)

I wasn't sure myself either but the result is better than I hoped for.

I really like the brick and wood building combination. Well done.

I'm using some brass tube that's been shaped into a decent representation of a sett and it's just a case of pressing it in to the foam although I can't do that much at a time because it hurt my arthritic thumbs  lol

So you are using the brass tube as some kind of cobble stamp. Still seems pretty time consuming. Have you considered soldering several tubes next to each other to get an even more effective tool?

(The whole thing looks gorgeous, mind, I am just interested in how you could make the whole process more efficient).

The brass tube is a stamp and the foam takes it quite well. I thought about putting several together but the anal retard in me couldn't handle seeing the repeat pattern  lol

It doesn't take too long though and it's quite easy to stop in mid flow ad then pick it up again later. Most of the boards will ave about the same or even less of the setts so I'm not too bothered.

See above  ;)
