A decision was taken a few days ago - now there's a novelty for once. It was noted that the little slice of Norway that is Svanda was looking quite tatty around the baseboard area after being bounced in and out of the car to a few shows. Seeing that it is appearing at the Crawley show at the weekend, a tidy up was necessary. Once again the tin of paint used to recoat the garage door frame was brought into play, and the whole carcass is now a smart satin black - waste not, want not. This small tin has now done two layouts and shows no sign of running out. Plus, as I didn't buy it in the first place, it could be said that it has been very cost effective.
While the middle board was propped on end to dry, it was observed that it was almost a google earth satellite view. I'm not sure if this is the case or that it just shows off the rough ballasting.
