My name is Noel and I’m from Sittingbourne in Kent.
Thanks for such a great website, full of so many useful tips and ideas, even the most experienced modellers can surely learn something new from time to time here, I know I do.
Please keep up the good work.
I have been modelling for more years than I care to remember and due to a lack of space I build ‘micro layouts’, mainly of industrial narrow gauge subjects, however, my latest layout is somewhat different and of a more unusual subject.
It is based (somewhat losely) on the London ‘Docklands Light Railway’ (DLR),and as it has the flavour of the DLR and is not completely accurate, I’ve called it the Docklands ‘LIKE’ Railway, this Is one of my largest layouts so far, 3’3″ X 18″
I’ve attached a few photos of my DLR layout in case you feel they may be of interest.
Looking forward to your next posting.
And because the ‘Scumton’ video proved so popular, here it is again. Bob – who made it – has kindly got in touch with a words:
“Hi Alastair..It’s Bob here of Scumton.
I’m amazed it’s been so popular & really pleased it’s giving some of your members a laugh!
It’s really just a compilation of my past youtube videos cobbled together…resulting in the chaos you see!
I enjoy modelling grimy urban scenes…the grubbier the better..so I thought the name “Scumton” seemed appropriate.
I did start off trying to be serious but the big kid in me took over & couldn’t stop myself from messing about…
The animated car scenes were mostly created using thin wires…a lot quicker than stop motion..& the other silly scenarios mostly came about after one too many glasses of wine, lol.
I’m so pleased I was able to share it with you, thanks to Dave..& thanks to all who’ve left such brilliant comments!
It still makes me laugh the second time round.
Please keep them coming.
