Re: Pincherswood - Modern 00 Layout - Latest Pics Page 6

Cable trunking is more realistic for a modern layout. You can even make it yourself by cutting strips of thick card and scoring the lines for the lids. Ten Commandments also makes a very popular ready-made product. I look forward to seeing the platforms! Im intending to get those, took me ages to f...

Re: Pincherswood - Modern 00 Layout - NEW Pics Page 6

Had to add two layers of card to the underneaths of my platforms. They sit a good cm or so below the doors of my trains so hopefully with the added height, and the detailing to go on the platform, it will be better when they get laid down Im having a few problems deciding how to top my ASDA building...

Re: Pincherswood - Modern 00 Layout - NEW Pics Page 6

Had another rethink about my platforms Im going to go for the metcalfe platform kits and doll them up a touch Im going to use some red brick plasticard sheets on the edges to give it a bit more of a 3D effect. I may PVA the top of the platforms with fine ballast between the edging strips to give the...

Re: Pincherswood - Modern 00 Layout - NEW Pics Page 6

looking good what paint did you use for the tarmac effect? :) To be honest it was a bit of a mistake I bought a pack of 5 paints from the range (2 black/3 white or vice versa) and mixed them together. I initially put too much black in because however much white i added it hardly changed. I wanted a...

Re: Pincherswood - Modern 00 Layout - Pics Page 5

I meant the unbuilt ones that were going to be located at the front of the layout :) I like the idea of a TMD depot but with this being my first layout and the fact that i dont know what a tmd requires etc im just trying to keep things fairly simple The layout isnt overly far away from completion, i...

Re: Pincherswood - Modern 00 Layout - Pics Page 5
