AL­LAN’S MOD­EL­LING MOTTOS

Model Rail (UK) - - OPENING THE BOX -

1. Keep it sim­ple.

2. Don’t model what you can’t see.

3. Do what­ever it takes – if it’s go­ing to take ten win­dows, give it ten win­dows and not nine!

4. Mea­sure twice, cut once.

5. Al­ways work to the near­est mil­lime­tre, not the near­est ½-mil.

6. Al­ways use the ar­chi­tec­tural ‘rule of thirds’.

7. Al­ways en­sure con­sis­tency through­out so that noth­ing on the lay­out catches the eye – ei­ther be­cause it’s bet­ter than ev­ery­thing else – or be­cause it’s worse!
