    Don't forget Buzzards, Kites, and Ospreys.

    Well done Mick. Isn't it a priviledge! Looks like my one which was identified as a Sparrowhawk because of the yellow eyes. Looks a lot plumper than my one too.

    That works too Thomas. It will gain a natural colour anyway. Forget about the door. It is still only a shed!

    I doubt it Mick. You will always find dust. I have always varnished Tongue and Groove timbers. I worked in Wales and have used up miles and miles of the stuff there. Ceilings such as your shed, and walls, in rooms up to 100ft long and 30ft wide. Always varnished. But as with everything else, it's your shed, your choice. Natural wood does give a nice warm glow. If you want bright, then paint.

    White ceiling and varnished walls, or just varnish the lot.

    Huricanes in the Northern Hemisphere, otherwise known as Anti Cyclones because they go the opposite way round to the Cyclones in the Southern Hemisphere.

    Two leds are also the same as a switch that is on/off/on. The switch toggle also indicates the direction of the setting.

Only yesterday, a meat van and plank wagon. £16 for the pair. Not yet sold as far as I know.

    Nice photos Mick. I must try to upload a photo taken the other day. I was in my armchair and something flashed by my shoulder and there was a crash at the front window. An unexpected visitor had come at high speed through the open back door, not realising that the view in front was in fact glass. I then found myself holding a stunned Sparrowhawk. My wife couldn't even get the lens cap off my camera, so the resulting photo is not as good as it should be. I am priviledged to have seen it fly off at the speed of sound when I let it go. Sorry that I am such a scruff.

    Looks great Mick. Hope you haven't forgotten all of those lovely weathered mineral wagons too. I bet they will look fantastic crossing the girder bridge.

    A ring of copper wire glued to the top of the chimney and painted will give you a lip.

    When I was a small boy in the early 1950s (I was 70 last weekend) my favourite books were Sammy the Shunter. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sammy_the_Shunter I wonder why Thomas the Tank became so popular when Sammy just disappeared?
  15. Instead of a slide switch that needs some effort to move, why not use a mini microswitch that only needs some sort of wiper to activate. It's still on or off after all.
