Wow, looks almost like one of the service trucks at Dakar races.
There are no strangers in this world ...
Only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet

Yes it does. I'm making a new version with some additions. Will post a pic or two soon.

Still working on it. I have sketches for the base and I have to design one element myself (daunting task) but I'll get there eventually. I'm a bit busy right now but start building soon.

Well, your crofters cottage has wetted my appetite!

So I have decided to maybe try a cottage. Doing a bit of redesign at the moment as I want an early two roomed cottage.

Then to print. I just need to decide on the scale. I normally work in 1/160 but have feeling this is going to be too fiddly at that scale. I will probably stick to HO.

Go for it! I modified the ones I have built so far too. Just a little photoshopping here and there and you go a long way with Andrew's design's. Looking forward seeing your results.

Finished modding the building (in "soft form") and am working on the roof and accessories now.

Did a bit of research en-route to make certain what I am doing is accurate.

OK - finished the image work.

Will print tomorrow and see if it will build over the weekend!

(PS Tappi - I haven't forgotten I still need to try and make a flower!).

Flowerpower - yes you have to build a plant for your hummingbird. But first let's see your version of the croft.
