Re: Micro layout in O-16.5

A bit more progress this weekend :D Firstly the whole board and frame was given two coats of MDF sealer: https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7857/46353881045_6eac4123db_b.jpg IMG_9415 by Pink Nosed Penguin , on Flickr I decided, after the very noisy running on my N gauge layout, to try some rubber underl...

Re: Micro layout in O-16.5

I did and only just getting around to working out what I did, all so long ago !! It was I recall quite complex ... Thanks yeah that's what I thought :shock: - I'll probably go with some kind of steel girders/panels approach - as you say the bridge is not very long . . . Love the trackwork, makes me...

Re: Micro layout in O-16.5

Hi PNP, I've not been involved as much as once ...... I'm so used to you being 'N', leaping to 7 mm scale is something else !! I like the cut-away to get some depth, it'll be quite a narrow 'cut'. Still I'm not surprised by you getting some height 'cos you did it to good effect before. Geoff T. Tha...

Re: St.Oval - A scenic Set Track Oval

Hi Geoff, I seem to have missed this thread - and I see it goes back a long way :o! A great layout with very simple track plan but superb scenic potential. You may have noticed I have started a small roundy roundy of my own here - which is considerably smaller :D. I wonder if you could explain how y...

The picture of the loco reminds me how small they are. Does the board feel heavy? Not that it matters being a small size.

Thanks - no the MDF is quite light, though a much larger board would be heavier to handle of course . . .

Re: Micro layout in O-16.5

Thanks for comments. So my 600mm x 900mm baseboard kit arrived and I checked the pieces fit together (made from 9mm MDF - just placed loosely in position for now): https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7909/46264330245_b4b536e800_k.jpg IMG_9403 by Pink Nosed Penguin , on Flickr I then also checked my inten...

Micro layout in O-16.5

Following on from my workbench dabbling in O-16.5 (see here ), I have decided I need somewhere to run my new trains :D Not being ready yet to start my next proper layout yet, I have decided to build a micro layout / diorama to get some experience in actual modelling in 7mm scale, maybe try out some ...
