A funny old few weeks

The last three weeks have been a funny mix.
  • Holidaying in a leaking tent.
  • Doing some more work on the garden project.
  • Painting and basing new elements for my 15mm Napoleonic Austrian army which were used for an inaugural game in my regular opponents new gaming room.
  • Track laying being started on Tredethy Wharf with the first point in position and the Tortoise point control mechanism in place under the baseboard (motor still to be installed).
  • Legs being constructed for the two scenic boards for Tredethy Wharf and nearly completed.
But.....during all the above I sprained my right wrist. At first it was not too bad and me being me, not wanting to make a fuss, I thought it would get better on its own. I tried to work though the discomfort until eventually, after a day's decorating, I could not do anything with my right hand........It has been strapped up in a splint for the last week. With hopefully only another week to go with the splint on, I'm doing what I can but it's being a little restrictive.

So very steady progress is being made on the layout but, at the moment, not enough to really shout about.

Good that you're cracking on with it though. Take it easy with a bit of fiddly modelling that doesn't need more than good eyesight.
