Re: Simple Shelf

Ni Nickbrad

The telegraph poles are wooden skewers from the poundshop, painted and a small piece of copper wire drilled through at the top. Then light black cotton thread looped around and glued with pva.

Simple and cheap.

Cheers

Re: Simple Shelf

Thank you for your kind comments.

This is as far as this particular layout will go, apart from a few more hours tinkering with a few things.

Plans are afoot for another, bigger layout. I just need to get a few hours off to get to the timber merchant. More soon......

Many Thanks

Re: Simple Shelf

Nice! Any overall shots? Not yet: it needs to be a bit tidier before I can take a photo. :wink: I have done a bit more: http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w128/ollyg16/DSC_0417.jpg http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w128/ollyg16/DSC_0429.jpg http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w128/ollyg16/DSC_0438....

Simple Shelf

I am in the prosess of making a small shelf layout. Most of the hardware and buildings are recycled from previous layouts, and the style is similar to previous attempts: don't expect anything groundbreaking. I am not ready to start another large layout, so this one is just to keep me off the streets...

Re: Green Wood Road. OO in a Shed

The layout has been dismantled and something new will appear soon.

It was GREAT fun, and the intention was to keep improving it, I got to the stage where I just wanted to start again.

The end of an era.

Re: Green Wood Road. OO in a Shed

Thanks Adam, I have not been very active lately, modelling, but still spend time fiddling with things and basically letting the trains trundle round while the music blares and the odd glass of red wine disappears. A simple, but effective relief from life. Modelling at it's best, according to me. Any...

Re: Green Wood Road. OO in a Shed

Hi Dave

I am really not sure who makes them: they came in a mixed lot from an online auction:

Maybe one of these?

Thanks

Re: Green Wood Road. OO in a Shed

Thank you, Keith. The water is a resin called "floor fix" that is used to bond the floor of caravans with a little watercolour mixed in to tint the water. I like it because it goes off very quickly. I am sure that other resins would have the same effect. I have used it in a number of place...

Re: Green Wood Road. OO in a Shed

There has not been much action on the layout lately, and the locos have been sitting idle in the yard.... http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w128/ollyg16/DSCF9669.jpg http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w128/ollyg16/DSCF9668.jpg http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w128/ollyg16/DSCF9667.jpg http://i175...

I have been working on a water tower over the past few days and have it at a stage when it is ready to be planted on the layout, near the pond. http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w128/ollyg16/DSCF9274.jpg http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w128/ollyg16/DSCF9275.jpg http://i175.photobucket.com/albums...
