Thanks for the support guys and apologies for not getting back earlier. I just got back from the hospital where my wife delivered a 1/1 scale homosapien infant boy. He'll join his big sister in our collection :-).
Dupes: You are right about that. I am not convinced about the sigleminded pursuit of accuracy in kits. I say fake it if you can.

Thanks guys day one was tough but he's already settling down. I was lucky enough to get 6 weeks off to get him set up before heading back to work.
Dupes: Little Oliver already has his own stash HLJ had a heap of Heller Junior kits on sale a while ago. So at three dollars each I bought 20 or so. Apparently they are good for 5+ years and he gets to play with the toy once we are finished. That is of course if there are any left after his big sister is finished, though I'm not holding out much hope though, at 20 months she is already obsessed with shoes and clothes

G'day, another small update. This time I am bashing away at a couple of figures so that I can call this build finished. Now the problem is that a lifetime ago I was able to paint a reasonable figure, and even won a couple of trophies as an amateur, but I am so out of practice that I am really struggling - doubly so since I only get very short stints at the bench. Anyway here is where I am up to at the moment:
Well done Brett!! Love the layout of the scene!!! Nice job on the BTR my friend!! Remember you could enter this in the MoM here as well!!! Just let one of the staff or myself know and we can get it posted!

Thanks for the kind words guys.
TRM - I was thinking of entering the November MoM. Ill wait until I take some better pics next week and I'll be in touch.
Andy - Those fugures were trouble free. Unfortunately my crappy painting skills don't do them justice. The wheels are the kit items as I couldn't bring myself to shell out for a resin set on a kit that was a bit of an experiment.
Tojo- Thank you, your very kind.
Leon - again thanks for taking the time to make a post. There really wasn't too much of a plan for the layout. I kind winged it and placed the figures after about 30 seconds using the "she'll be right" technique.
