It's coming along very nicely.  Time for the details, including a Midsomer Murder or two :-) :-)

Hi Nike:

Looks like this project is coming along quite nicely. I'm very much enjoying you builds. Great looking structures.

Mike,

Unbelievable modeling. I love the details on the houses and the entire diorama.

And just think, you and I finished 16th and 17th in the old forum model building contest out of 18 entries.

Go figure.

Mike, Beautiful set of structures. I can't tell if they are card, resin or plaster - the essence of a master modeller.

Thanks Tom I really appreciate your comments. You are not suggesting that the jury was rigged or biased in anyway are you? :D
Modelling is subjective I find and I am enjoying the challenge of modelling "Britishness" after so many years of modelling America.
My next challenge will be Norway and possibly after that Austria............

And here are a couple more. I noticed that the front of the building needed some dirt where the building meets the road. Photos really help modelling.........

Maybe 30 years ago we ate at a coaching inn like that one in Salisbury.
