Re: Gantsville - Building an HO Inglenook

Tree production is being delayed, but not for a reason I'd have expected..... all my usual places to go to for filler powder do not have any in stock, (or only have branded pollyfilla for almost £4 a small box). Once I locate somewhere that actually has some, my trees will hopefully start coming to ...

Re: Gantsville - Building an HO Inglenook

I'm roughly using the methods described in the Dec 2013 BRM magazine for the trunks, I had a look at the prices for postiche and the like for the fine branches, but the cost would push me into commercial tree territory, with no guarantee of the same quality result. Time will tell if the teased out s...

Re: Gantsville - Building an HO Inglenook

Moving on with my wire tree attempts, I decided to try something I have seen on youtube and elsewhere, but always put off trying myself, despite having all the items to hand. So, I pulled out my old blender, (not used for food consumption due to using a plastic bodied jug to crush ice, which damaged...

Re: Andrew's New Loft Layout

One idea that is gaining traction in the States is The One Module Approach, (TOMA). In a nutshell, you create a large layout bu building one smaller module at a time that is operable and allows you to complete it in a reasonable timeframe, before moving onto the next module which connects to the exi...

Re: Gantsville - Building an HO Inglenook

I have considered O gauge trees, but the price is what has led me to make my own, (or at least attmpt to). I do have a 30cm high wire frame already from a couple of years back, but it looks too large for HO, it's like a 200 year old oak in OO. My current attempts are around the 15 - 20 cm range, I a...

Re: Gantsville - Building an HO Inglenook

Has it really been that long since an update? Aaaaanyway, I went to the TVNAM show last weekend in Handsacre and whilst there made a few purchases to extend my rolling stock, plus also found some Preiser figures which will be great for railroad workers. https://preview.ibb.co/hG3UQm/cattle_wagon.jpg...

Re: Tilley Yard South, Chicago, Winter 1956

From what I've seen of American railroad's they lend themselves to scenic fiddle yards quite nicely. Why not do both? I think one of the stand out features that sets the scene is your gloomy back scene, it just looks cold from the get go. Makes me want to watch runaway train. Great film :) So much ...

Re: Not a layout - but railway modelling

That sounds like a woderful little diorama, as a Fenite, (albeit one who is stuck in yellowbelly land,) i'll be keeping a close eye on this as it progresses :)

Re: Dougalmacs Workbench

I'd be tempted to go for the 75mm version of that trunking due to it being an external measurement, but I've got to admit, I am very much liking the idea of using that

Re: A slice of Akihabara with a serving of London.

Interesting concept, going for many different scenes on one board. I know others have done so with the seasons and so on in the past, but completely different geographical locations, that's certainly a new take on the idea for me :)
