Re: arboretum valley

Hi Jaz
Just to throw an idea out, would it be possible to make latex moulds from Shredded Wheat that way the textures could still be retained. They could also be cast in non Mouse food materials.

Re: New / Old - Little Weldon

Hello all In answer to your question Mountain. I am going to put down some Cobbles from the Goods Shed to the Weighbridge and paint the remainder the same as the High Street. Hopefully this will unite the two areas of the layout. If I don't like it, it's only paint and it can be covered over. I thin...

Re: 8x4 roundy round- scenery begins page 9

Hello Josh Good to see you again.I would be itching to get back to my railway if I had to spend three months working 6 day weeks. It doesn't leave much time for family life let alone hobbies. I've been looking at page 9 of your thread to get my fix of 8x4 roundy round. Thanks for your kind words abo...

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

Hi Normally the cap of a chimney is made by over sailing bricks or stone depending on which material was used in the buildings construction. On some occasions these can be several courses high, and sometimes the bricks over sail on each course. If the the bricks are laid as stretchers (longways) the...

Re: New / Old - Little Weldon

Hello all I like the theory you have got there Mountain metal for heavy metal. I'm looking for some ideas gentlemen. I now have two areas of bare baseboard, both of which are to be roadways. The first and largest of these is outside the front of Little Weldon station up to the Goods Shed, in front o...

The metal figures are relatively common, the plastic I have never seen in the flesh so to speak. RAIL0076_-_3_1024x1024....

Re: What would you use?

Hi Regarding the construction of your baseboard could you possibly cut everything to size, drill all holes etc in the garden beforehand. If you did all the prep work before you would effectively end up with a kit to assemble in the bedroom. That should cut down the time needed to erect the board in ...

Hi Brighton
That's a nice seamless joint you've created between the bridge and backscene. I'm watching for future developments with interest.

Re: New / Old - Little Weldon

Hello all This is a question I have been asking myself, I would like a shed but there is not enough space to incorporate an independent building. The space in this corner is very tight and I just can't imagine a HD layout without a turntable. But earlier today I had a brain wave a low relief structu...

Re: New / Old - Little Weldon

Hello all. An update on the continuing works to the locomotive yard. The ballasting of the approach road to the turntable has been undertaken, along with several of the sidings. These are to be weathered down a bit so they don't look to be in the same condition as the mainlines. Because of the sizes...

Re: Wandle Park

A great choice of locomotive to pull the inaugural train.
It's amazing the boost you get from that first train. The pieces start to call into place.

Re: Real Rock!!

Hello Sorry, I possibly didn't make myself clear. This was a conservation project there was no new stone used. The wall itself was originally built in 1378 with the brick capping added later during the 18th century. As the wall is just shy of a meter thick the occasional piece of the rubble infill h...
