Another milestone reached …

Hi all,

Well, over the last few days, I have been installing the workbench and some overhead cupboards, and I’m quite pleased with the end result.


I have installed 2 x 28W ‘daylight’ fluro tubes over the bench, behind a valance. This type of tube was chosen because it’s the colour temperature of the lights on Bowen Creek, as well as what I plan to use on the home layout. This allows me to carry out weathering tasks under the same lighting conditions as on the layout.

Now I can finally start to unpack some of the modelling stuff that has been in boxes for nearly two years!! I am really looking forward to getting back into the modelling, now that I have a place to do it.

The first priority is to complete some weathering of wagons in readiness for the Epping show which is now under three weeks away.

Andrew and I have also been playing around with our recently purchased Loksound Programmer and decoders, but I am having problems uploading sounds to the decoder. Does anyone out there use Loksound and program their own sounds?

Cheers for now.
