    Even that grubby, in my opinion, they looked better in red than in green.

    It looks like Lime Street in the 1960s.

    Thanks Adrian I've never rolled a boiler and smoke box before they are separate etchings so I'm father pleased with myself these were scrap etches that Nigel Hunt sent me I did it with the two metal bars that are in the photo

    I'd be more than happy with that result. Did you just roll it just on the cutting mat or use a foam underlay?

    Hi Adrian I just rolled it on the cutting mat Nigel Hunt showed me how to do it last year I just hope the when I roll the ones off of the etch that it goes as well
