Re: RMWeb forum joining???

I have no idea then, that'll be all they're looking for for that question, something easy just to filter out any spammers.

Re: LNWR Precedent 2-4-0

A little while ago: ...look at the locos they've matched their rakes to, a couple there that don't appear to be RTR, yet...! That's the aspect that caught my eye. LNWR Precedent and SECR Wainwright D class. Both of them quite possible as NRM commissions. Personally I am little surprised that the D ...

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

That's certainly looking very, well, I was going to say smart but that doesn't seem right somehow - very ramshackle, in a good way! Likewise I look forward to seeing it in place on the layout. :)

Re: Brick mortar courses

ok, ta, sounds good. Dry brushing with the mortar colour or various brick colours? also what acrylic colour/make do you use for the mortar? The dry brushing was for various brick colours, but I still paint the bricks a basic brick colour before doing the mortar. Any pale buff/grey will do, or just ...

Re: Brick mortar courses

Thanks. What paint do you use and how much water do you add? Also, can it be done the other way around as I already have my brick colour on. It's an MDF kit btw. Ta I've used neat acrylic paint before after painting the brick colour no problem, it wipes off fine with a damp cloth. A bit of dry brus...

Re: Various scratch/kit built rolling stock - LMS period 1 coaches, LNWR diner, Cam Rys wagons

Thanks Ex-Pat, yes I see what you mean about it being more American. Weren't they a home built response to the design of some imported Pullmans? The inset vestibule doors and the huge clerestory are very Pullmanesque. Magnificent coaches must have given a marvellous ride! Yes I think you're right B...

Thanks Ex-Pat, yes I see what you mean about it being more American. This wasn't just a one off though, this was a common design across a range of the LNWR's more luxurious/special carriages, from their Royal train, through to their prestige "2pm Corridor" service from Edinburgh to London ...

Re: A new start in Finescale OO: NSR Stone junction station

And I'm really pleased with the ~10 cm sqd in the foreground! Great work flying scotsman123 but I must be feeling extra thick today - please enlighten me further as to what this is. Oh, just the small area in the foreground with the fence, advertising signs, milk churns and platform trolley, aside ...

Re: Various scratch/kit built rolling stock - IoW & Toplights

I thought I'd put a few non NSR bits of modelling that I've been working on recently, that nonetheless will see some use on my layout, up here. Firstly a couple of LMS carriages in early livery: https://i.ibb.co/rdRftWY/IMG-20201017-235019.jpg These are the humble mainline period 1 coaches, I snappe...

Re: A new start in Finescale OO: NSR Stone junction station

Well, after a less busy than anticipated holiday due to various pandemic-related closures of planned activities, last month 2 more carriages came into being, bringing the total up to 4: https://i.ibb.co/b1g4g1V/IMG-20201017-234527.jpg Ignore the colour difference, trick of the light. 2 are slightly ...

Re: Painting Tips/Questions for a Newbie! Painting/Lining/Finish

1. I am just using enamel. I did not want to prime the whole thing as there are some areas I wanted to leave black/factory colour. Is there a way around this? I don't tend to bother priming plastic for enamel, I just paint straight on. but if you wish, a combination of masking tape and masking flui...

Re: What to use for modelling/scratch-building (Materials?)

Hi there, I'd suggest plasticard would be the way forward. Guaranteed smooth surfaces, easy to cut to shape and generally work with. A plastic weld solvent such as Mek-pak is best, as it leaves no residue whatsoever and gives a pretty strong bond. You can sand/file it with anything, sandpaper, needl...

Re: What glue for making trees?

Hairspray works well when you're using smaller particles, but as you've found out it's not strong enough for big clumps. I think when I used to use clump foliage for trees I used "stringy glue" something like bostik or equivalent. You have to be careful not to get in a mess with it, but th...

Indeed, really looking good Ex-Pat, can't wait to see it in place.
