    All week I have been receiving more supplies for the dries. Today the corrugated sheets arrived so I can crack on now. I will post some photos this weekend.
    The dries are loosely based on the Blackpool dries at Burngullow and I added a bagged clay facility to add operational variety. Hopefully it should look like part of a much bigger facility.
    The main structure is over 3 foot long, which sounds big, but if I built to scale it would fill my shed!
    At least it should smell nice as I am going to add loads of talcum powder to the dries.

    Time for some pictures.
    The clay dries and bagged clay storage are coming along nicely. It is a huge building at 3 foot long.
    The 2 main areas will have removable roof areas so I can reach lights and paint it etc.
    I have started to clad the roof and Mark out a few sky lights. Loads to do still.
    I also picked up a cute little loader today.

    I really must clad that Pringles container.
    Oh and I also made a box for the speaker to fit inside my 03.

    Hello Dwayne,
    An interesting subject. And one reasonably close (geographically) to me. I particularily applaud your selflessness in reducing the snack mountain to further your modelling :)
