Re: Linka

Hello all Laugharne Castle looks amazing, but my thoughts at the moment are looking more in the direction of Corfe Castle. As in the spirit of Little Weldon l shall not be looking to model any particular castle but to create an impression. I shall have to get the tape measure out over the weekend. I...

Re: Linka

Hello all My first project is now starting to take shape. The low relief Terrace housing is looking like a building. Yet to carry out any filling and no roof yet. I plan on modelling up some interiors and to add some lighting. IMG_20190419_165112_kindlephoto-539296813.jpg My wife has requested a rui...

Re: Backscene blending

Hello Emwood.
I think you have it right there once you have softened out the white lines. I agree with End2 that a set of traffic lights or a crossing would be good. Lovely church is it a kit ?

Re: what do you hope to achieve from your model railway?

Buelligan, your railway doesn't have to be detailed for you to gain satisfaction from it. All I'm aiming for is to create an impression. That is enough for me. I do like to see the amazing layouts of others and I take my hat off to their creators. It's great to be able to spend time with your son my...

Re: Mortar colour

Hello all. In a professional capacity I have to match Historic mortars. Architecture prior to the reinvention of cement in 1756, would have been built completely with Lime mortars. Which generally speaking created creamy coloured mixes. Lime based mortars tend to three parts aggregate to one part li...

Re: what do you hope to achieve from your model railway?

Hello all I have been thinking about this question, and I have some thoughts. When I enter my railway room I have found a certain calmness descends upon me. All my everyday thoughts just seem to vanish. Looking around Little Weldon brings a smile to my face, I am very happy with how it is progressin...

Re: Linka

Thanks to End2's sharp eyes my latest purchase arrived today, 9 moulds, 5 stone and 4 brick along with assorted bits and pieces. Plans are now forming for Little Weldon's ruined Abbey. To make way for this the stone circle will have to sold off. Maybe a wealthy American could be found so it can be s...

Re: what do you hope to achieve from your model railway?

Hello all I agree with you that the latest Hornby advert is absolute tosh. It seems to me that it has been all been produced on the rush. From the layout construction to the filming.I have seen far better videos of layouts on this forum. It appears to me that the current company is relying very heav...

Re: Tram

Hello all
I have just found out if anyone is interested that if I use the Bec motorising units in the Tower models kit, it will negotiate curves down to a radius of 7 1/4 inches. This would make tram way modelling ideal for those short of space.

Re: Tram

I thought about running it as a conduit powered car. But I thought that with the centre pick up I would be mirroring Little Weldon a bit to much. So it's going to have to be overhead wires.

Re: Tram

Hi Mountain and Bufferstop. Thank you both very much for your input on this project which is certainly in its infancy at the moment. My original thought was to have a Feltham car (this is because the factory was just around the corner), Bec make a kit they also produce a motorising bogie and an unpo...
