    A 4mm kit I'm developing based on Westbury Shed. A test build on the workbench today. The camera is very good at picking up the parts that need further work!

    Is there any way you could adjust the laser setting or use a filter to give a 'fuzzy' beam (a great techy word, eh?) or similar in order to achieve a radiused trough effect, like this? Would be fantastic for random stone!

    You can tell I know JS about lasers.......

    Granite road setts next please, on thin sheet to allow camber.

    I can do that. It’s laborious work to create the artwork. Essentially, I have to create layers of greys to represent the power of the laser.

    The sheets are .3 mm thick so very flexible. I’ll have a look at it.

    I'd like to reproduce this kind of stonework:
    696 near South Dock 7Jul47 Casserley.jpeg
    So it's very close but too incised. Suggestions for finishing?

    What laser software are you using?

    Sorry Phil
    I posted before finishing my message. Blame not the red wine - just the quantity thereof!

    I could engrave that for you. My work would be a bit flatter, but with good painting, it would look like your example. What scale are you working in?

    7mm. If I was to sketch/give dimensions for the infilled arches, presumably you could produce the whole side of the viaduct?I don’t need the provision for shops/businesses as I have to lose the road sadly.

    Sure, no problem. up to 800mm wide sections. The material is only 800mm wide. I can put the brick arches in etc.

    Thanks Phil. I need to do some maths. I'll get back to you in due course. I shall need 2.5 - 3 metres of it so there will be a few joins!

    Shame you have to lose the road - could have trams and granite setts as well!

    The second 1920-30s photo is excellent for the plethora of detail.

    I'm revisiting the road situation. I'm setting the layout too late for the trams but....

    That wealth of advertising hoardings and under-the-arches businesses is so 'of-its-time' that it has to be accommodated somehow!

    I'd forgotten the 'Wild Woodbines', they used to inhabit my Fathers study! Along with Players Navy cut - another non filtered cigarette. Not so much wild, but positively furious when lit. :)
