Looks interesting Brian. Some proper modelling coming up?

Shall we see a return of the "Potts Line" Brian?

Nice one, Brian! It's a very satisfying moment when you retrieve all the boards and other gear from where they've been languishing and start dusting off the cobwebs (even if only symbolically) and putting things back together. I know, I did it a couple of years ago.

I wish you every success (and lotsa fun) with this.

Cheers,
Artur

Enjoy the rebirth it will allow you lots to do in the wet short daylight days.
Is this going in the 'new build' we've all watched the construction of?

Sorry, I don't quite follow. Are you talking to me, Brian (Site Admin), or to Brian 1951? In my case, the old layout is being incorporated into the new one. The work is documented on flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/53775591@ ... 3670264075.

As for Brian1951, I'm sure he'll be enjoying as lot of well-deserved job satisfaction. Also, I wonder if those display cabinets are home-made? They certainly look very professional.

Cheers,
Artur

Brian, The 'new build' room has turned out to be so nice, SWMBO has claimed it for her new lounge. I now have three other rooms available to me as a compromise. :(
