Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

Roger - I did get the P.o.P bandage at Hobby Craft. They do there own, which is 3" x 3m and costs £1 - the WS bandage is about 8" wide and possibly a little longer but cost £9. The own brand is the better option - it all does the same job. Barry

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

Hi Roger The rockface was created using Woodland Scenics Rock Molds (there vulcanised rubber)- just fill with plaster of paris (Hobby Craft) and pop out when dry - there usually dry in thirty minutes - the detail is very good.

I have still to add bushes and trees - not sure whether the cottage will stay. I'm also not sure whether this needs static grass or course turf - it is supposed to be seen as...

Re: My layout

Hi Bob - You can build your hill using polystyrene insulation board. I recently rebuilt my hill/tunnel using Jablite (Steve M recommended it) - it came in a pack of four sheets 1200x450x50 from B&Q (About £19) - it cuts easily with a sharp knife - I used a hot-wire - it can be a bit messy with a kni...

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

I've started to add a bit of "greenery" to the hill/tunnel - still a few acres to go! https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49362271258_4ae278a3f2_k.jpg IMG_0520 by Barry Clayton , on Flickr https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49362944637_c085099d0a_k.jpg IMG_0519 by Barry Clayton , on Flickr

Re: Forced to slow down.

Blood test this morning - prior to MRI on Tuesday. Tip: Get to the hospital early, I was in just before 8am (they open at 7.30am) and home by 8.30am - bonus = Free NHS parking. I couldn't get a blood test with my GP surgery until after Tuesday - hence hospital. Nice early start to the day.
