Australian Prototype 

"Filldergap" A Rapid Build Australian Layout by David Cooke

Filldergap was a layout put together in just over a week to fill an unexpected withdrawal of a major exhibit at the first North Rail Model Expo. 

The baseboards were four x ply panel doors 600mmx2025mm. These were joined by dowels and then jointing ply plates were screwed over the joins .All Mounted on existing tressels.

The track was code 100 Peco with insulfrog points for simplicity and isolation of dead sections.

Power feed to the main tracks the rest controlled by isolating points. Ballast was Peco foam in the front and none in the back fiddle yard section.

Buildings were pre-existent NSWGR kits and a previous scratch built footbridge made entirely from cardboard from a previous layout.

The water tank was  superquick kitbashed with balsa strip for legs and bracing. The Signal box is kitbashed from an American kit.

The back Scene was produced from a montage of shops on the main street of Sheffield by a friendly graphic artist mate

The rolling stock is mainly proprietary Lima Eureka and Austrians.The C38 is extensively super detailed
