Re: NSE making a start

Oh dear that was a bit of shock :shock: I know what you mean, bad running ruins a layout no matter how good it looks. I was in the same boat 2 years ago when I ripped up my single track badly running layout and created Everard Junction instead. I look forward to seeing the new design. Glad your stic...

Re: Build quality issues

I tend to prefer bachmann to other manufacturers because they seem better built (for me anyway) I currently have 1 x class 105 - no issues 2 x class 108 - fine 1 x class 37 - fine 1 x class 55 - contacts for cab lighting needed re-soldering, after that it's been great 2 x class 20 - both faultless 2...

Re: British Rail 1988 to 1990 - Weathering class 58s

Red brown could work. Tamiya paints are very good, you want to look at blacks, browns, oranges, reds and greys. Have you thought of mixing your own colours using tamiya paints?

I'm just working with the airbrush at the moment, I haven't experimented with any rain effects yet.

Re: British Rail 1988 to 1990 - 50034 is finished

I've been weathering 58s recently. My friend wanted me to weather his N gauge 58 so I thought I would weather mine too. 58s worked with coal most of their lives so as you can see they are far too clean. Using some pics as reference I have now got them looking nice and grubby :D http://i1121.photobuc...

Re: British Rail 1988 to 1990 - 50034 is finished

Hi guys I have now painted furious and it has come out well. On Howe I used railmatch NSE dark blue paint, it dried with a very fury finish and the colour didn't match my NSE coaches. The solve this I took matters into my own hands and mixed my own pot of NSE dark blue using a combo of gloss enamels...

I like to use a combination of powders and railmatch paint.

Re: British Rail 1988 to 1990 - Track Weathering

Recently I have been weathering the track in the TMD. It has made a nice improvement to the area :) http://i1121.photobucket.com/albums/l503/EverardJunction/Track%20weathering/259.jpg http://i1121.photobucket.com/albums/l503/EverardJunction/Track%20weathering/261.jpg http://i1121.photobucket.com/alb...

Some pics of 50023 running :D , I have began to weather the mk2s now and they are looking much better for it. http://i1121.photobucket.com/albums/l503/EverardJunction/Class%2050/DSCF2223.jpg http://i1121.photobucket.com/albums/l503/EverardJunction/Class%2050/DSCF2224.jpg http://i1121.photobucket.com...

Re: British Rail 1988 to 1990 - 50023 is painted

Thanks for the feedback guys 8) The NSE on the 50 was quite difficult to do, I used tamiya masking tape to get a nice edge. It's expensive but has never let me down when painting tamiya radio control cars. My friends 60s is now back on his layout and running well, he will me giving me his dapol clas...

Re: British Rail 1988 to 1990

Some more painting progress :D I've repainted, renumbered and weathered one of my class 50s. I'm very pleased with the results and feel I have corrected most of the original hornby paint issues, such as the blue, grey, oversize numbers, shiny metal wheels and rubbish weathering. http://i1121.photobu...
