I particularly like the crane frame in the top right and is that a load of Black Dog printies precariously ballanced 3rd down on the left

Spayed the whole lot with red primer and added some green where necessary. Looked dead so decided to try a bit of weathering. Improved by getting rid of the uniform colour. Still not too happy so may repaint one day. As the whole thing lifts off this won't be too difficult.

One of the hazards of exhibiting is always the possibility of having to carry the layout into the hall from outside in the rain. Arches had four corner "posts" that bolted on which were handy as handles when the layout had to be taken out of the house and carried on its side. An old shower curtain was duct taped into a cover that slipped over these and kept the rain out. Might have to do something like this for Upton. All that inkjet brickpaper won't take kindly to 1:1 rain .
