No problems mate, modelling can take any direction from perfect to a pile of junk and you can do anything and add anything. Like I said your little dio looks superb and tells a story without fuss.Thanks John, Monica and Si. I enjoyed doing the dio and have learnt things along the way. Si thanks for the tips/advice I will have a go with different things as you suggest and also different angles with the pictures. Your stroll in the meadow is very impressive. I especially like the tree and the ground work.
Thanks again all.
Nick, first rule of modelling-build for you, what you want, how you want. There are no rules, techniques and practice yes, but a model can be done in anyway you like. Don't set your skill levels high as they may not be reachable...yet, take your time and just keep making stuff and most of all, enjoy it, which I might add, you seem to do as this dio shows, the humour comes through and that is down to you thinking it out and having fun with the piece.Cheers Peter - might get to be a quality modeller/painter like you one day.
