It seems a long while ago that I bought some of Sarissa Precision’s Gantries. It was at a salute a few years back if I recall correctly.  They didn’t have all the bits I wanted so took my order there and then and sent the missing items post free as soon as they got back to the office…  Great customer service and great products.

This month I finally got round to painting them… and then realised that I had not thought through the collection of pieces as well as I might have done…

The set I picked up could only be made up into long runs or a T shape and worse than that, I had 2 stairways and 3 ends to my gantry…

So I bought some more…

Simple painting again. Black undercoat spray to start with and then uniform grey sprayed only down the middle of the walkway and roughly under the supports.  Lots of black remained on show and left shadows and light with very little effort.

The set now makes up solid blocks of terrain as well as long runs with corners and entry points in a number of places.

One small issue was my realisation that the base plate of the stairs is off set and only fits one way (not the way I stuck one of my stair sets…) Oh well what’s one more trip hazard when the whole walkway already has a hundred 1′ wide holes in it 🙂

Looking better…

and more versatile…

That’s actually one job that has sat in the shed, unfinished for 2-3 years, now finished..!   And it wasn’t even on the To Do List…

Success at last…
