Its getting there. Now be a good chap and make another legation gateway ;D

On it dear boy, on it  :D

Station roof is done and I've just about completed two cars for the train; one passenger carriage and one defence bogie  :)

The station clock tower needs to be complete but I've had to wait as this is where the battery (just about) fits.






And now for the train carriages. After looking at Michi's superb thread for this kit it actually hasn't been as bad as I thought although I've decided not to put lights in it, it'll take more thinking about than I've got time really.

The gatlings are from HLBS and very nice to deal with they were too  :D

They're a bit wonky on the track as there isn't any yet and I'm still undecided as to the best solution  :?







And now a beauty shot using (shock, shock, horror, horror) a backdrop  :D



cheers

James

Very cool. The problem with this wall set up is it's just making me sit here thinking of things with which to breach it  >:D
That's not the way my army was supposed to develop....

Could always start another one.....

That's a Hotchkiss rotary cannon. I should know, I've got loads of them on my Venezian stuff  :P
So many projects..... so little time.......

Brilliant!! :o

You can actually buy plastic rail that might do the job for the track. I got given some, but if you want I can find out where it's from?

If you wouldn't mind, that'd be great   :)

Wonderful, that pic with the backdrop is indeed pure  :-*

Woulnd't it be quite easy to make the track from just normal plastic I beam?

Arhh the backdrop finally makes an appearance and it was most certainly worth it :-*

Absolutely splendiferous!
