Oh, much simpler than that Ian, got one somewhere that has the big print, name, obscured with paint runs & only the small print details left showing!!

Love it when things transfer straight accross from real to scale

Gradually shaping up, isn't it? -- Russ

Yes, And I am enjoying it, I used to rush things through to get it finished & on to the next,
 but this I am doing things leisurly, adding details while I can still access the interior.
With old age & chronic Fatigue, pacing myself & skipping about from one aspect to another keeps me interested

no, but a clue is they are two different shapes that work together in matched pairs

I am pleased with the results with the clay drain channel,
but I think for an old floor (100 years ) the slate edges would be more packed with floor grot, they are too sharp

Flitting back to the ladder ( one of them)
Did I use the wrong sort of wood?
I love the grain in Beech, but even at this scale, 1/12th it looks out of place
Wanted a new clean look so varnished it, probably a mistake
My wife says it looks like chipboard!!!!!
