Merton Garage interior - lucky shot

I was asked to build an extended version of the Kingsway Models Merton card kit. This meant giving the model much more depth.
This shot taken on the kitchen worktop on a sunny day created some interesting shadows and lighting and takes one's attention away from the dodgy roof trusses!
It almost looks like the lights on the MD Metro Scania (by Britbus) have been left on! Also seen are EFE DMSs and an LS Leyland National.

Many thanks - though it was really a result of a 'take a lot , and one might be good' philosophy!

John, the roof trusses and sky lights are what give the photo its realism! What a fabulous pic mate, well done!!

Yes this is an excellent and well posed model. The buses on the right are accurately posed going through the fuel pumps after a day's service, whilst the DMS types are accurately parked ready for the next day. This is one of the few bus depot models I've seen where buses are placed accurately rather than randomly.

Very nice display - beautifully done. Glad you were lucky enough to leave anything on the kitchen worktop before 'the boss' swept it all away!
