Kim, I think that last set of photos is your best modeling ever. -- ssuR

Seriously, the project is taking shape nicely.

hey russ.
the biggest problem that i have had so far is fitting it all in under the big building ,right corner.there is the rail line traveling behind the back scene and the canal also traveling off scene under the same building.this is how i have done it.

.

the canal finishes in a blacked out area under the building with a curved divider seperating the railway.the only area that will be visible will be the entrances to the canal and railway.
kind regards kim

I'll email you the address for the steak knives Kim  Grin

Good to see the start of the new project.  It will be interesting to see how it all fits into the small footprint and disguises the short run.  Have always liked the challenging shapes you like to use in your work.

Cheers,
Dan

I just went back for a look and, yes, the images are gone. Are they links or uploads, Kim? Remember, links usually fail after a short time. -- Russ

In order to make sure images do not disappear from this forum, you must create a lower res (smaller file size) version of the image and store it here. Links rarely last and it is very frustrating to go to an old thread and find most of the photos missing. Here is the thread on how to post images: http://www.finescalerr.com/smf/index.php?topic=3.0.

I hope a lot of people stumble upon this thread and, in particular, these last three entries. But I doubt many will consider them relevant.

what i want to know is who has been nicking my photoes ,i know where you live, myself and the dogs will be over right after dinner so watch out.
i think i will start the photo thing again in a week or so it is a bit of waste of time if i am stuffing them up all i can say that this model is getting smaller i think it is about the limit in large scale minium space.when i made the base board it turned out 50 mm smaller all the way around [2 inches].i really dont want want to make new base board and with resin water you really want to make them solid so i want to keep them. size now 700 mm by 700 mm[2 foot 4inches by 2 foot 4 inches]maybe  it is a advantage with the smaller space ,resin weighs a ton so it will be easier to lift.10 mm [just under one half inch]should be plenty for the depth of the resin water.
anyway about those missing photoes.
kind regards kim

Good advice Russ but as I read this forum on my iPad I can't upload any attachments.  Undecided

Do you know if there's a reason the attach function doesn't work on an iPad?

I don't yet have an iPad (but do have an iPhone) so this is only a guess: Maybe iOS and the forum software don't work well together. You would have to upload the images with your computer. Others may have experience with this and can give you a more practical (and correct) answer. -- Russ
