Re: My personal layout under endless (re)construction

So, we can now expect a shortage of tomatoes on the supermarket shelves?! Quite ingenious. But how could you just "chop" that layout?

Re: WORKING WITH FOAM

As ever, a very effective feature to hide the corner angle.

Re: Edgware GN,

Nice jobs - are they transfers (if so whose?) or bow-pen?

Re: WORKING WITH FOAM

That's another great tutorial Daniel - you make it look so easy (I know your response will be "it is easy"!). I simply can't imagine anyone criticizing it!

Many thanks for the kind offer Daniel - I'll find some somewhere.

Re: Hawick via Grantham, Inverness and SIAM (00 gauge DC)

Thanks Paul ,& Daniel for the painting tips. Unfortunately artist's materials shops are currently closed in Ireland, and we are not permitted to travel to Northern Ireland (only 16 miles away!) and where they are only open for another week (all subject to change of course!). The graphite will ha...

Re: From a "Hunt" to a "Shire"

Thanks Jim & Geoff - I don't know for certain but I think there would have simply been a bar of wood across the coaling platform to limit the travel of the tub. I recall seeing a photo of one depot where the tubs ran on rails that were curved upwards at their ends, and railwayjim' s Millsend inc...

Re: WORKING WITH FOAM

You've now answered one of my "internal" questions - I was wondering what sort of knife was used to scribe the brick/stonework, and now I know it's a sharp pencil!

Re: My personal layout under endless (re)construction

Thanks Daniel.

I really don't know what you have to apologize for - I certainly haven't been offended in any way. If I go silent then it's probably because one of my main drivers is "not doing today what I can do tomorrow"!

Let's look at the Foam thread now.

Re: My personal layout under endless (re)construction

Wakey, wakey!! You haven't posted any photos yet this afternoon! Thanks for your reply Daniel . In some respects it's made me feel much better about never getting anything properly finished myself - only wish they were more complete like your efforts (even though you maintain they're not complete!)....

Re: My personal layout under endless (re)construction

Slow down Daniel - you're going too fast! I really need a long time to take in the fascinating work that you have produced - just skimming quickly through the photos doesn't do them appropriate justice. The foggy/misty scenes were so realistic - what did you use for those effects? I can see the bene...

Re: Edgware GN,

Yes, they are ugly! That stovepipe chimney sent me rushing to my R.C.T.S. Volume 5 as I'd never seen one before. Looks like J3 chimneys can be a bit of a minefield depending on the date. Nevertheless it's looking good.
