Weighty tools

My plan with the front of Harpers Yard is to use Slaters embossed Plastikard bricks rather than the brick paper used on PetitieProperties stand. I think this will blend with the other buildings I'm likely to use better.

Fixing the plastic with Deluxe Materials Speed Bond, I wanted to let the glue dry under some weights. These lumps of steel are offcuts bought from a model engineering show for 50p each and have proved invaluable for all sorts of jobs. They are a perfect fit for this building!

Basic items like the steel lumps are cheap and useful, but not "proper" tools in many modellers eyes. They are wrong.
