Thank you all for the very kind words, they are very appreciated.

There is still a short way to go yet before completion and final pictures, probably tomorrow.

Thanks again.

A good pic of this area proved most elusive earlier today when I took the others, I'll try some more shots in the early morning sun.

Bill, I really appreciate your comments on my work and the model, thank you very much.

Although I am sitting here with a big smile on my face after reading your very generous comments in reality all I did was follow Bretts instructions.

Thanks again,

Karl.A

Karl, if you put a Ferrari in the hands of a bad driver, he won't do it justice.
I really don't think there will be too many of these sheds built as exceptionnaly well as yours.

Karl, that's a beautiful diorama. The colors...the texture of the
groundcover...the composition...EVERYTHING is just perfect.
Wonderful job.

Thanks very much Frederic and Ken I really appreciate it.

I made a (small) start on spiking down the rails (although they are 'instant superglued' in place already) this morning, I can tell you now..... PR2 will NOT be handlaid with four spikes per tie .

Thank you Simon, it has been a really great experience and I learned alot throughout the build.

It may not look like that many but this 106 homemade spikes sitting in blacken it.



Installing all the spikes went quicker than I thought it would, and yes I spiked where the crossing was going to go just incase anyone noticed it later, besides, it would have bugged me everytime I looked at it.



Once the spikes were all done I gave them a coat of 'rusty' chalk and then blackened between the rails, but not too much as this is a fairly new line.



Next I completed the final detail for the diorama... which is some oily rags to go in and next to the can close to the gaspump.



I hereby declare this diorama finished !!!



I know the colours are off but the sun is too bright right now for pics outside and I was too thrilled about finishing my first SW kit, and how good it came out to wait any longer and post better outdoor pics.

Many thanks indeed go to Brett for asking me to build this kit here for him, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Thanks also to everyone who posted (and read) throughout the build, I really appreciate all of the input, suggestions and wonderful comments.

Take care and be safe,
Karl.A
