Re: THE Christmas Model Railway show - Manchester 2018!

The Manchester Model Railway Society tries to be a bit different when it stages its annual exhibition. Of course you can expect to see some of the best model railway layouts in the country; of course there will be a wide range of traders and demonstrations of modelling techniques, - but we try to ad...

Re: Leberecht, My Prussian modelling adventure.

Now to try and describe the stress that I went through upon my return from holiday! Despite having had a wonderful break away from everything, when my wife and I returned to the UK, my feelings of anxiety returned with a vengeance as there was so much still to do. We also had some rather rainy weath...

Re: Leberecht, My Prussian modelling adventure.

Many thanks, Chops! I do hope your soda was enjoyed rather than spilled! Unfortunately, I have sat in but never ridden such vehicles in real life so I cannot say, sorry but I can say that all my models of such vehicles whether from Roco, Fleischmann or Piko - they all run superbly. I used to have a ...

Re: Leberecht, My Prussian modelling adventure.

Many thanks, Josh! I'm pleased you like it. I cannot give a very detailed description of the next stages of the layouts construction as that was in the capable hands of my scenery guru, Doug Coombes, I can only show some photos he sent me as updates while I was getting some relaxation in. I do know ...

Re: Leberecht, My Prussian modelling adventure.

Hello Timbersurf, That's a nice casting and thanks for the idea, innovative! May I ask what do you use to pour into your mould? Is Herculite the material you pour into the mould or the mould material itself, please? If I tried that with 'my' moulds, the liquid plaster mix would simply run out, leavi...

Re: Leberecht, My Prussian modelling adventure.

Thanks, Guys! Several years ago, my good friend Doug Coombes, bought lots of silicon rubber moulds from Werkstatt Spörle, a sadly now defunct company*. These moulds can be used to make the most exquisite plaster castings of all sorts of model infrastructure using fine quality casting or ‘dental’ pla...

Re: Leberecht, My Prussian modelling adventure.

Hello All, Having now finished my first show with this layout, it is now that I need to go back in time (so to speak) and show how I prepared the layout for the scenery. First, I painted a thick layer of PVA all over the pink foam areas and coated this with strips of plaster impregnated cloth. Some ...
