Bloody 'ell!

That is coming along really well.

Like VSF meets Coronation Street.
In the best possible sense, of course.

Doors for the wash house and toilets
Lintels for 8 windows and 3 doors
Back gate archway
Main gate and back gate.
Cobbles... lots of cobbles (Or flagstones)

If I say Oh, Crikey one more time, I'll have to be called 'Penfold'.

Okay, call me Penfold!

Still need to do the lintels, window ledges and door steps. 

I've also got to do the gates but I want to work out the cobbles first.

The coal yard will get an office and weighbridge.

Plenty of suggestions available to a search here. As I recall, top contenders are Lemax Xmas matts, embossed wallpaper, faux leather faux basketball material, and split peas. As for the last... :o ::)

Actually, sounds TERRIBLE fiddly, but the person that used 'em claimed something like 'tip the surface, tap lightly, and they sort themselves out, mostly...'  :o ::)

Yes been looking for easy cobbles or pavers but it looks like there is no easy way.

Basketball leather stuff looks great but I can't find it in the UK for a sensible price :(
Split peas or lentils are a bit big.  Couldn't find any suitable wall paper either.

Will check out lemax Thanks

Lemax stuff I've found comes in two patterns, random pavers and brick. May be too big in either case, and not terribly 'cobble.'

Thing with round veggies, you coat them so they fill a bit, and they don't look huge.

Natch, nothing I've ever actually tried.

Doug

Edit: The thing about Xmas decorations (like Lemax) they've already been on sale (in the US), even cheaper after the holiday, and dead easy to lay out and cut vinyl mats. ;->=

Edit, part deux: AND if you try the search here, be sure to check both VSF and Gothic Horror.

You can use Sago for cobbles as well, it is usually smaller.
