Re: Stainsacre

I have been around for years, but for the second time in my forum history a slight mistake and the press of the wrong button and last night my entire profile was deleted. In the early days I went by the name of Lofty, but a house move five years ago meant I gave up my cave in the loft and I rebrand...

Re: Micro layout in O-16.5

Just to prove that I don't only drink Hobgoblin beer , below is proof that I am also partial to a drop of Abbott :lol: Gluing some hardboard fascia boards onto my little layout (quite nice to be able to simply stand it on its end for this sort of thing!) https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/493983182...

Re: Micro layout in O-16.5

A little bit more work this weekend after dropping youngest back at Uni :D The road overbridge at the left end of the scenic side of the layout has been toned down with dark washes, and soot added by weathering powder (hope I haven't overdone that!) and glued into position: https://live.staticflickr...

I like the graffiti - not from the experience of a mis-spent youth I hope :wink:

Re: Micro layout in O-16.5

Thanks for interest :D I have now attached the backscene to the layout - with small metal angle brackets. It will come off again for attaching the actual scene! https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49333889652_76ca96b7bb_b.jpg IMG_9503 by Pink Nosed Penguin , on Flickr The road bridge has also progre...

Re: Michaela's Layout

Wow, looks like a serious sized model railway :D - do you have a rough plan of the loft to help us put the different sections into perspective? I love the raised track in your scenic section 1, and you have a decent amount of space to do the urban area justice too - great plan! Also you are very bra...

Re: Micro layout in O-16.5

My first visit here in some years - no "activity" either. (Difficult family health issues and bereavement.) Vaguely wondering about a very modest re-beginning.... and I see this wonderful, small, inspiration! Excellent stuff. I shall ponder. Thanks for the eye-opener. Nice to hear from yo...

Re: New layout design.

Instead of taking the door off, how about changing it to open outwards (can be put back as it was when you move out!) so then you can run the railway around all 4 walls and just duck under when going in/out? As stated above, running the railway around the walls on shelves with the centre of the room...

Re: North Lane - Adventures In A Box Room

There is no doubt that modelling in an actual room with normal access is so much more convenient than lofts, cellars or other less accessible places :D. As long as the railway can survive any other activities that must occur in the 'railway room' (its no longer a 'box room' is it? :wink:). Our 'fami...
