Re: And The Next Photo Will Have

I know that there are many models on the forum with water, next, let's have another Here's my in-progress river: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ACtC-3ctVAfAeX8Xjr9_vqS-dIhWgZvaxICLvHXq9POwHkMhaESNHnU2ZZaTZsrs9fAUCrbRBHe4CnDM3zGEoCgAeLQXubG8adU2IVevdcdsn_K22CVwMA1bhEgyucwaeQWciK78GYphimJlGzP7W...

Re: Beaglington-On-Sea 00 gauge in 6ft by 4ft

Well done with the fix :D
I was called back to work early after my furlough time - as they were running behind on a project :o. So I've now been working (from home, so no health worries!) extra hard for two weeks - it's been a shock to the system after 11 weeks 'off' . . . :lol:

It's actually a fiddle yard, but never mind... Flashback to my 2008 open day: Blimey! Keep that photo up your sleeve for when we do the 50 locos shot :o Anyway, here's another marshalling yard: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ACtC-3fCavJlHtgURiQhnI-rpD79SmUNCnyZIKAnXYsJbTXaZi_Eyj-qFc2ARWhIzg4j...

Re: where are the members ???????

so I dunno sometimes, just a "well done that looks really good" might actually be a lot more than the throw away comment it might initially seem like I agree it's nice to get some comments like that even if they seem inane, but it's hard for people to keep saying that to post after post w...

Re: Micro layout in O-16.5

Thanks again for all your comments :D. The main body of water was done using Woodland Scenics 'Scenic Glue' - and then the waves and ripples were added with Woodland Scenics 'Water Effects'. TBH I didn't actually buy the 'Scenic Glue' (the eBay supplier I ordered the 'Water Effects' from sent it to ...

Which is the 'Wren' wagon ?

Is it the Esso tanker? (BTW shouldn't it be Wrenn)?

Re: Micro layout in O-16.5

Wow, so many comments - thank you all very much :D What was the brand of PVA you used as I tried this once and it seemed to be slightly yellow when it dried very thick? The undulations of your stream looks spot-on, especially as there would be broken water around the rocks. Well done! It was Woodlan...

Re: Micro layout in O-16.5

Thanks guys :D Well, after quite a few days (!) the PVA has finally dried, and is thankfully clear 8). So, before any further treatment it is now looking like this: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ACtC-3d7vqUI5tCODN00EjPbM25ZoN7lVwpQ2muaupr6vIG-pv5Ronq4ea9h-50_BzA9YeEOG63y73ZFzwzF9AAQ7oKZeKmLQI...

Re: PNP's O-16.5 Workbench

My rate of modelling will now reduce drastically, as my extended 'holiday' (officially known as furlough!) will be cut short by two weeks tomorrow, when I have been asked to recommence working :o (from home). I can't really complain (and I'm not expecting any sympathy from anyone!) but I am slowly t...

Re: Micro layout in O-16.5

I have made a start on the river. First a PVA flat bed was laid down, which I then painted with acrylic greenish colour to allow watercolours to 'take': https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ACtC-3dLYWd8SdC97JON1G6cwl7P_tZw6w5iZ13yKiMck0FDSndA634Vq5HO3_4GQA27x5esvZ2yCddQFa4PMGe4iUfJSbFChMummZF3b_1_26...

Re: Coventry GWR

Just found this thread - you have a lovely space up there in your loft 8). I will be following your build with interest...

Re the lift section, do you need to be careful about the rail ends fouling at the hinged end? Hopefully I'm worrying about nothing . . . :D

Re: MIDVILLE JUNCTION Modern 00

Interesting photos Dan - as has already been said, it's nice to see a home-made helix 8).
BTW what is the radius of the inner track, and do you know how steep is the slope please?

Re: PNP's O-16.5 Workbench

Many thanks for comments - this was my first attempt at a scratch-built loco (body) so I'm very pleased how it turned out. All my locos are named after recent family ancestors and I think this one is a fitting tribute to 'Ted' :D

You can see him on my small layout here.
