Glad to see you are back on track Warren, I know what it is like to rip up and start again.
You seem to be doing fine.

Just like Bill Warren, a new start. a blank canvas, new thoughts and ideas, a new room to fill up, ...HEAVEN   :\-

It looks like you are putting the foam straight onto the battens of your frame work, is that right ?
and how high do you make your bench?

Looks good so far.   Bu99er the cows, just keep building man.

Hi Folks

Over the last few months I have been debating over my benchwork.

I've not been happy with it for a while and trying to decide how to proceed.

This problem has not been helping my frame of mind towards modelling P[:

So a couple of weeks ago after a fairly bad day I decide enough is enough and ripped out all my benchwork and redid it. :fan:

Here are some pics of where I'm up to





One issue I had was with the no lix my main line ran under the lower loop of the no lix and i was not happy with the clearance I had.
So i extend the the benchwork in both directions so now the main line will run in front of the no lix.
By extending the benchwork I will put a canyon in the gap and will have 4 trestles running across the canyon





I will build and lay the no lix then later do the ravine to suit the trestles


more soon I hope

Cheers Warren
