Re: New Layout

I did this some time ago, however only just put some photos on. I am extremely impressed with the 'rubber rock' material, it was well worth waiting to get it from the states, and it makes a really nice focal point on the layout. http://s348.photobucket.com/albums/q347/ASK2008_photos/ I have since be...

Re: New Layout

Thanks, yes I am pleased with the lining of Prince, however one day i will try using my bowpen, but for now the transfer approach works well for me. I bought the transfers from gaugemaster, and then had to cut the various rads, and link with straight lining, the transfers I used for this were as lin...

Re: New Layout

Thanks to you both, the lining is transfers from GWR OO locos, my farther would have painted them by hand (when he used to do this sort of thing), but I cannot even attempt to replicate what he is capable of. I would love to exhibit it, it still requires a little more work to get it finished, also h...

Re: Flint Cottage - 009 pizza

In David Rowes book of Architectural Modelling (a bible for model buildings) on page 24 it suggests he achieve a good effect for 'pebble walls' with use of making a stamp which was a piece of brass 2mm thick to which he drilled random sized holes, and then filed the holes to suit the size and elonga...

Re: New Layout

I used a grey base coat of light grey, then used a kind of light sand colour for the bulk of the mortar, slightly watered down, and covered it all, wiping the top layer back so it sat in the recesses, then once dry, picked out the various stones with a range of greys and browns. Finally used pure wh...

Re: New Layout

Thanks :) yes the Bagnal is the tallest loco I intend to use, I think if I made the bridge any bigger, it would have lost it character, as 'Douglas' looks right at the moment under it. My current plan is to put 2 more tall buildings on the opposite side of the track, and to try and get some interest...
