Lynton lamp huts update

The Lamp huts have had a little more attention with the addition of signs and the roof now painted black. As with the Signal cabin, the lamp huts will have a plastic base to make removal from the layout easier . Each sign has a different origin. Originally I intended to use Narrow Planet etched plates for the lamp sign and the SR warning sign. In the end the lamp sign was made by photocopy onto plastic card as the etched versions were not clear enough. The representation  of the enamel sign to the right hand side is from the internet printed onto glossy card. My thanks go to a fellow L&B modeller Mike Bayly for that .

  1. It looks OK with the printed signs. I was very disappointed with the etched signs, so I'll see how this idea works out.
