Re: Real Life Use of Polystyrene Blocks for Scenery!

Hi Jim,

I suppose you can't get a spray foam can large enough ?
Shows you never know whats under your feet ?

Re: Not a layout - but railway modelling

I need to keep pushing this along regardless of that 1st May start. Wanting to add a stream meant attaching a front extension, this is now screwed and glued into place. O.K so a couple of screws in that road will need covering when the stream banks are profiled with plaster. https://image.ibb.co/doX...

Re: Lysander's 2018 competition entry

A nice result there Tony.

White metal rolling stock kits have too many problems to solve for
me to even try one.

Always like to watch the building of lightweight structures.
I tend to be Victorian and over strength everything.

Re: Gateside and Northbridge

Looks like your CRT monitor is happy enough in the loft Jim.
Mine gives me all sorts of different colour mixes - the humidity
I think, waiting for it to give up !!

Keep working away - you must be running out of space now.

Re: Not a layout - but railway modelling

If you don't try a few different ideas the whole experience could become boring, sleeper spacing is O.K, but something was missing from a Diorama to be called "Country Living", WATER, I do like trying to add some. Extending the build wasn't a problem, Alex may almost forgive me. A stream w...

Re: Not a layout - but railway modelling

I shall be disqualified, but it's the thought that counts ! Alex is running a Spring 2018 modelling 'Event', he says to start at the beginning of May. Tough as I've already started what I said I'd enter, and I don't have time, or inclination to do another project. As a result I'll put photographs an...

Re: Dad-1 - Workbench - West Bay Wagon Works

I had to try something new on my latest little diorama board. Dave of this parish was always dissatisfied with Peco track sleeper spacing. Me being a heathen was happy enough with code 100 and used as it came. This small diorama was almost made without any railway association, but in the end decided...

Re: Millsend Layout - OO Gauge Sixties Midland

Bought my copy today ............. Deserving every one of it's 6 pages. For many of us this is the dream layout and I feel privileged to have followed it's development over several years. Even if future development is minimal I do hope we keep on getting those updates. I also have a grin at your una...

Re: Dad-1 - Workbench - West Bay Wagon Works

Hi Jim, Sequencing can be important, but being driven by the moment I do what I feel like. Usually I add a matt varnish last, because to get the rusty mix I usually use it includes mixing in some gloss brown. More often than not I do more than one dirty wash, based simply on being able to add more, ...

Re: Millsend Layout - OO Gauge Sixties Midland

He, He, Jim we both agree !! I gave up using an airbrush 20 years ago ? Still have a couple around somewhere. Too danm messy, cutting paint back with thinners, then the thorough clean up afterwards. Lazy - Yes I'll admit it, if it can't be done by rattle-can, or brush, change the subject !! No need ...
