Re: Disguising roof trusses

It's difficult to say without a picture...

White (and light colours) reflect light and therefore will stand out more
Black (and dark colours) absorb more light and will blend more

If the trusses are vertical or close to vertical you could wrap the in a card building at the base which could help.

Re: Mortar colour

I have given my Signal box a base colour of Humbrol 121 and then dry brushed the bricks Humbrol 70 and as I am looking for a aged look it was horrendous

The darker brick colour made the mortar look even lighter.



What's a better base colour for the aged mortar?

Re: Tom@Crewe - Workbench

I have now modified the parts concerning the crane carriage, jib runner and relieving bogies. I was surprised how soft some of the plastic parts were. Time to start reassembly.

Re: Tom@Crewe - Workbench

This is never going to be an exact scale build but I have been surprised by the axle spacing. almost all within 2 mm, the worst being the relieving bogies from first axle to buffet but this has a 5 mm section which is easily removed. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7903/46133772055_1f8e5ca49c_b.jpg
