Katham House

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

I'm waiting for some bits to arrive before I can make the shell of the building that will be the main feature of the board :D

Watch this space :wink: :D

That appeared on the first Katham House board at the Dereham show and did attract a views looks of confusion but the entire table did that. :wink:

Hi Barry --

That's really cool! The layout is fairly simple ... yet it has lots of separate "scenes" and areas of interest. The fence is extremely effective at dividing these, and yet open enough to make the layout look larger than it really is. Neatly done ... and thanks for the "virtual" exhibition for those who couldn't make the drive! :wink:
Cheers,
Dallas

Thanks Dallas, still a huge amount of work to do on it, this is just the basic "running shell" of the layout, everyone can see the bare spots, missing gates, no clutter etc. but it's on the road to completion :wink:

You've done a grand job in carrying the theme and style over the joint so it doesn't look like 2 modules. 8)

Fantastic

There is a lot more going on there with the second module Barry and they fit together well. They dont really look like 2 modules at all, even when you know :) well done.
So what's the next module, the cattery? :lol:
