Mike. I am a great user of the dremel but after seeing the mammoth amount of brickwork you have engraved! Howlong did it take (and how did your back take it?)

hi mikey, a bout a week, but i didnt/couldnt do it full time, did a arch a day, helps me work rest and play Laughing , seruislly, u go mad trying to keep the stonework the same sizes, so i did a arch, , did the horizontal lines 1st, by eye, then as the dremmile blades wore down, i swapped them for new, inbetween chating on the net, i ran trains, after a break, i did the vertical lines, useing the smaller worn disks.... doing a arch, well it kinda spurs u on....
wify came up with the idea for weathering it, as the masionry paint was too "new", she got some dippers, from work, basicly, a foam lolly ... shes uses them as a carea for old folks, to dampen there mouths, .... any how, they worked, dry brushing the weathering in..

Nice work Mike.

Actually in that last picture there's what looks like some sort of printed back-scene. Is that specically for outdoor use, or have you coated a 'smaller scale' back-scene with some sort of protective covering? I only ask because it just caught my eye, and it looks quite effective with the viaduct in the foreground and the croc in the middle-distance as it were.

That night shot is brilliant - full of atmosphere. You can almost hear the footsteps coming round the corner on the cobbles..........
