Re: Hood-dale Main - V3 is imminent!!!

Managed to get most of the second baseboard assembled, just need to nail and glue the top on. http://www.fikasfook.co.uk/v3/020.jpg Also another little goodie turned up today, test fitted it together and looks sweet. Glue and paint to follow this weekend hopefully. 3mm laser cut mdf. Going to get an...

Re: Hood-dale Main - V3 is imminent!!!

Shall post some pictures of progress if I actually manage to make any!! :? I'm trying to take my time with this bui...

Re: Hood-dale Main - V3 is imminent!!!

Couldn't get on with the baseboard tonight as my boys were in bed early so cutting and banging were off the schedule. So I unpacked something different for me. I ordered a laser cut signal box kit the other day and today it arrived. Not sure how my numb fingers are going to cope... shall start paint...

Re: Gateside and Northbridge

Loving the sand on the gable end. Excellent finish, think I may have to appropriate that idea for myself :D
Great detailing pal.

Re: Hood-dale Main - V3 is imminent!!!

Cheers Jim. I shall try my best not to disappoint you squire! :? Got a lot of ideas of what to do already so time shall tell if I can make whats in my mind into readable reality. I'm in no rush unlike last time when I wanted it done straight away. This version I hope will be what I will class as the...

Re: Hood-dale Main - V3 is imminent!!!

Oh don't worry, all the surfaces will be treated when assembled. Worked with a lot of mdf over the years and am quite used to the stuff. But appreciate the sentiment thanks. Quite surprised myself using mdf as I have an endless supply of ply at work!!! Got 11 point motors to cut out for in stage 1 s...

Re: Hood-dale Main - V3 is imminent!!!

Why thank you squire. First time I've tried making a baseboard like that. Looks like it has turned out ok :shock:
12mm ply frame with 6mm mdf top. Nice dry loft space no extreme temperatures so it should stay nice and flat for many a moon I reckon.
Hope to get number two done within next few days.

Re: Hood-dale Main - V3 is imminent!!!

Hi all. Hoped to get loads done today but family descended upon our quiet time and, well frankly ruined it! :shock: But none the less I did get a good hour in the loft and managed to start the baseboard construction. One section at 4x3 foot is now made and waiting for glue to dry. http://www.fikasfo...

Re: Hood-dale Main - V3 is imminent!!!

I'm finally going to buy some wood for the tops today, traditional bank holiday b&q trip. So expect to see some baseboard construction by the end of the bank holiday. If not feel free to berate me over the lack of progress. Really feel the need to make something happen now. To much procrastinati...
