London Festival of Railway Modelling 25/26 March

Postby adrianmc » Thu Mar 23, 2017 5:43 pm

Hi All,

Just about to start packing up Leysdown ready for the journey up to Ally Pally tomorrow.

Kettlewell, presented by John Stocks from the West of Scotland 4mm Group, will also be there as will the Society Stand.

If you are visiting the show please feel free to come over and say hi.

Regards

Adrian

Not really. I think it is just the impression from the picture angles. Both the P4 layouts looked very good. Kettlewell is John's first layout and very good it is too. It will be of the layouts on show at Scaleforum this year - September 23rd/24th.

They do. However, layouts like Leysdown baffle me. All that space and so little railway.

Simply for clarification I was actually trying to be humorous with regard to the layout pictured side on but am glad I can look forward to seeing it on a conventional plane in September! :)

Interesting - I see that on some of my machines, the image is rendered 90 degrees 'wrong'. I'll put it on my snagging list.

All well on my iPad etc.
Make Worcestershire great again.
Build a wall along the Herefordshire border and make them pay for it.

Strangely, on my PC it displays on it side in the thread , when you click on it then then displays the right way up. I have seen this occasional before.

It does! Phew. I was getting worried that I was going to have contend with some new manifestation of gravity in order to do P4 as well as all the other complexities.

I suppose it's what taking a sideway's glance means.

:D

Thanks John, for info I'm viewing it in Google Chrome on Win10 64 via Sky ISP. 11" Notebook
I'll check my desktop later.

I wonder if it's to do with how the camera orientation is recorded in the image data for particular cameras/processing and how this relates to the forum software. I have seen it happen elsewhere.
Kind regards
