      how to paint and damage them too.

      Can anyone do a similar expose on skips? Not the Roy Link kind but the one's
      you hire that always end up with someone else's mattress in it. I wanted to
      build some for a long time but feel like a bit of a wally in the street with
      a tape measure. I'm guessing there are standard sizes?

        Thanks Frank for your help. Will start making them tomorrow night.I
        live in N.Ireland and i either have to do mail order or make my own
        things because we hav'nt got a good model shop about. With the show

        If anyone else has ideas about making weeds/long grass please get in
        touch ASAP.

            which has dimensions of the big RoRo container skips. Why didn't I think to
            look on the net under Skip Hire. Embarrassing - it's only what I do for a
            living!

              You'll pay for that on Saturday! Where is the nearest hostelry to the hall?

              For the record, I work for an Internet Service Provider, not an advertising
              agency specialising in skip hire!
