    Yes. Been doing curved brick work in 7mm for a few years but this method will be how I’ll do 4mm.

    Precoloured 4mm bricks. Needs some optimisation on the laser settings to reduce the thickness of the cut, but it looks a lot thicker in the photo than it does in hand.

    I'm not going back to 4mm scale just because you're shrinking things!!!

    I don't think anyone does it anywhere near as well as you do Phil, but you inspired me to play just for the fun.......

    First of the shop kits finished except for the 3d parts. Hopefully will see those soon and I can get one or two of these painted up.

    The Great Eastern Model Railways frontage looks sort of familiar.

    Test build and paint of my new 4mm signal box kit just finished by Dan Evason.

    A couple of minor issues on the kit to resolve but nothing major. Pretty pleased at how it’s turned out.

    This is a small box anyway so a Ruston for size.

    I like that Cambrian box very much. It's also suitable for platform-mounting. Such a small box should be popular with those modelling the borders area of England & Wales. And at long last, 4mm modellers will also be getting a 'Manor' before long.

    Love it! Can the steps and vestibule be built on the other side - left? May sound a stupid question, but if you don't ask...

    I’ve got a 7mm one for you in the works.
  13. BrushType4

    BrushType4 Western Thunderer

    Yes, I’ll make a left handed option.

    Thanks, that's great Andy, but I have just placed an order for your 7mm Llansantffraid signal box.

    :( I’m Phil Pearce. Andy Pearce is the competition. Nice guy and his designs are from Rob Burage who trailblazed lasercut buildings.

    Jeepers, I'm sorry, not to mention totally mixed up now (that's not hard with me). I can now see why there were mix-up's on emails. I have just followed the link at the bottom of your profile and am delighted to find all the things I couldn't find because I was viewing the wrong site.

    I’ve been beavering away on designing 4mm scale kits. The majority of these are my 7mm kits rescaled.

    I’m a bit excited today as some of the packaging has arrived. I’m still waiting for the official printed cards to go inside but I couldn’t help myself mock one up.

    I’m really pleased how these are looking.

    Are you tracking and tracing your kits?

    Hi Tim, not sure what you mean? Postage wise, I use 100% Royal Mail/Parcel Force. More expensive but had too many problems with the cheapo networks.
