Hi all, this may or may not happen, it will be the biggest project I've ever taken on I've been playing with the layout, it will be huge (I may have to try and make it in 2 halves somehow to store and work on it) anyway I cut the footprint of all the the vehicles and have placed them roughly (obviously a piece of oblong paper doesn't really look anything like a car or bus but it gives me an idea of scale needed, as you can see I can't really make it any smaller but I will need a few more cars ( any suggestions on iconic British cars availiable in 1/24)

Good luck KP. if I got a routemaster I'd be wanting to do it up as in "Summer Hoilday" for no other reason than to make a model of my first crush.

Lauri Peters that is not Cliff.

Hi all, well Robin (on another forum) had a great idea to add a zebra crossing to give me a cut line so as i can join the two halves together, but I've checked and can find no ref pics at any time period with a zebra crossing at picadilly circus (and I can't add something to such an iconic British landmark that wasn't there) so,,, Ive got a cunning plan, I'm going to make all the buildings and scenery removable  (not sure how yet)  anyway made a start on the fountain, I was going to cheat and do it as it was in ww2 but of course the route master and mini and taxi for that matter were after ww2.

I know, I know it looks like corrugated cardboard but with a bit of plaster of Paris I'm sure it will be fine (I hope) also nigel this is supposed to be a diorama of British iconic vehicles, I am flexible though and if I find I can't fill it in will add popular cars of other country's.

Hi all can't really get into any serious modeling (no time) but decided to try another idea with the fountain made the paving slabs out of stiff paper and added pre shading, I think it's going to be OK, not sure how I'm going to handle the curb stones.

Hi all well I've started on the fountain (not sure how to do the corner ornamentation yet) but I pleased with how it's starting, this is a picture frame upside down and a bit of the ornamentation filed off its actually 2  mil to low in scale but that's only a couple of inches overall.
