Skips - Pritchard Patent Product Company Ltd

 

Skips - Pritchard Patent Product Company Ltd

 

These two skips are made by Pritchard Patent Product Company Ltd. The detailing on them is great. I have added some rubbish, bits of rail and sleeper cut offs, as well as some model pallets.


 

Garden - Hornby, Gaugemaster, Ratio

 

Garden - Hornby, Gaugemaster, Ratio

 

This little garden/allotment was made using a Gaugemaster apple tree, Hornby grass scatter, Hornby bushes, brown Humbrol paint, and a ratio shed and fence (fence painted with Humbrol model paint). This took about an hour and I think the look is very effective. I used 2 paper clips bent and cut to length to make a runner been frame. I simply made some wholes in the board stood the poles up and soldered them together.


 

Railway Crossing - Peco and readymade

 

Railway Crossing - Peco and readymade

This crossing was scratch built and had to allow the removal of the track as it is located on a recoverable link board between my hinged board and my fixed shelf. The gate is made by Peco. I had it spare from a Peco crossing which I upgraded to a more modern Peco light and arm setup.


 

Cows - Cows, Ratio cow shed

 

cows and barn

 

The ratio barn was very easy to build and paint. painting was not essential as the plastic was the right colour, but for best effect it is recommended. The cows are not Hornby but I have forgotten where I acquired them from. The Hornby Cows (R768) also look very nice ad are a nice touch for any large areas of grass, like in the picture above of the corner of my base board


 

Cycle shed - Ratio

 

Cycle shed

 

Cost less than 2. Very fiddly to build and paint but was worth it. Also came with some extra bikes to place all over your railway layout.


 

Railway Footbridge - Hornby R076

 

Railway Footbridge - Hornby R076

This Hornby foot bridge looks great and is push to fit assembly. The bridge spans two tracks from one platform to another platform and is high enough to be used freestanding at trackside level.


 

Lorry - (With Bachmann Container)

 

Lorry Bachmann Container

 

These lorry's can sometimes be found in the pound shopping various forms and livery. If you want it to be a flat bed container carrier simply remove the trailers box top. Detailing is surprisingly good and the scale looks very close.
