  • A Vegetable Plot in 4mm Scale

    Chris Pilton

    Issue 5 (1986)



    Not everyone will necessarily put this much effort into creating just one tiny lineside feature, but to do justice to the fine standards of wheels, track and other high fidelity equipment used by so many modellers today, it is worth paying more attention to the rest of the scene. Lineside allotments were a familiar feature on spare land at most country stations so Chris Pilton's description of how he built this outstanding vegetable plot could be very useful to a great many readers. He believes that anyone can achieve similar results with a little patience and observation of the prototype.
