Rod Stewarts' model railway 124ft long x 23ft wide - amazing - even a boat in the 7th picture!

Impressive, or what!

There is some boaty stuff too- the weathering on that model steamer is excellent.

Love the comment "they were very accomodating" when removing furniture and increasing ventillation!  I must remember that next time I check-in to the premier inn -you don't mind if I do a bit of woodwork on the desk and some celly painting do you?  I won't use power tools or an air compressor after eleven -promise!

....As much as I love the guys admitting to be normal hobbyists I find their modeling stories and ease of materials quite hilarious and rediculus!  Inspirational, yet a little bit of fantasy at the same time.

to be honest, I was flooded out the house a few years back, moved into a Premier inn for about 5months and built a model or 2 in the room.... the cleaning girls gave me a spare couple of bins  :-))
