It all started with me thinking I’d like to take up model making again, something I hadn’t done since I was about 16.
I had always made military models when I was younger, but now I felt the need for another dimension… to make something that could be used once it was finished.
That’s when I remembered my father’s interest in railway modelling, something which I had grown up with. Railway modelling did have the extra dimension that you could run the models.
So, my mind made up, I started… and started again… and again. Three false starts in all. Twice in the front bedroom and once in the spare room.
Finally, frustrated by the size restrictions, I decided that the loft, although not ideal, would at least give me the space I was looking for.
