Re: arboretum valley

Great work Jaz. Love the fox heading for the bin bags, never seen that modelled before! Out of interest, do you have track plans for your layouts? Would be interesting to see how all these scenes fit together.

Re: Wandle Park

The factory yard has now acquired a wall and gateway, and the stream is in place. For this I made up a box with an open end, painted the bottom and then applied many layers of varnish (leaving 24 hours to dry between layers...days and days to finish!). Then the box was fitted into the hole in the ba...

Re: Acrylic v. Enamel Paints – your uses/preferences.

The only "proper" modelling paint I've ever bought was Railmatch track paint. I use poundland and hobby craft acrylics albeit usually watered down. I use poundland grey spray paint for undercoating things. I'm with you there End2end. I use Railmatch a lot and have quite a few tins of 'old...

Re: Thoughts which may help the manufacturers, the trade and the modellers alike.

In the end, it comes down to what is acceptable to the individual modeller, and their budget. Personally I am quite happy to run older models or Railroad stuff as it is the overall feel and atmosphere of the original rather than minute detail that I am after, and I couldn't afford to stock my layout...

I'm pretty sure that Smallbrook Studio sell an 0-4-0 chassis for their 0-16.5 body kits. They also do various Dapol wagon chassis.

My first ever loco was a Triang Princess Elizabeth, good to see that those models are still about.

Re: Michaela’s workbench, how much detail is too much detail?

helped me develop a good technique to get the brickwork on the cafe building I'll say it has, your buildings look spot on, nice work. Like many I find scenic work the best part Yep, I'm the same, which is why it's taking so long to get the track up & running on my layout..I keep getting distrac...

Suction Vice

Found these in Aldis last night for £5.99. Not sure what sort of quality they are, but for that price might be worth checking out? https://cdn.aldi-digital.co.uk//Workzon ... 0&p=2&q=77

Point Rail Feeds

A quick question on point motor track feeds. Is it possible to use the bonding wires as the feeds rather than soldering separate feeds to the actual track? In the diagram below, the feeds are shown wired to the heel of the point right next to the main track feed. Looking at the way the power flows t...
