Re: Requesting Help To Accurately Date WW.1 Era Carriages (G.E.R) Used As Homes

Found this reference on a website about stock for sale posted by a user called 'Kinghambranch': My apologies if this has already been posted (I did do a search) but the HRA April 2015 Newsletter includes an item on 2 GER coach bodies, currently forming part of a (you've guessed it) bungalow, that is...

Re: Red Rock Valley

I'm in my late twenties (27 on Friday) and should be tech savvy, but I don't have much time to YouTube, I have two little uns that I don't want to wake up too and I work late like every day, but I was able to watch a photo compilation video with the sound off and I think it looks really awesome. My ...

Re: Wanton Vandalism of layouts

I will never understand this type of behaviour. I doubt they'll get what they deserve, unlikely they'll repay their damages either being youths. Sometimes at school I was called sad for liking model trains/railways, and modellers being described by people as "sad old men", but quite the op...

Re: Tonglington Abbey & St. Renock Quay Kato N Gauge Unitrack Layouts

Final update for now, I've made no more progress than this. I've built and painted a terraced row of houses by Kestrel based on the houses along the quay in Portmagee, the other side of the mountains across the other side of the bay here. I have a shop to build that I'm now thinking I might do as a ...

Re: Tonglington Abbey & St. Renock Quay Kato N Gauge Unitrack Layouts

So, Quayside walling... I had the walls painted and I glued them in place (with a lot of difficulty) and helped prop them up and conceal joins with painted matchsticks. However, the join between the quayside wall and the quayside of itself didn't go as smoothly as planned. I had to fill in the gap w...

Re: Tonglington Abbey & St. Renock Quay Kato N Gauge Unitrack Layouts

Update time again, trying to play catch up to get the thread up to date. I bought some 00 stone sheets and an N gauge peco bridge side kit and had a go at painting both to be more realistic, here are the results (the first two photos showing the original colour of the sheet): https://live.staticflic...

Re: Dj models announcement

I like the big secretive reveals though, I mean I never have any money to buy anything from the new range releases, but it's always somewhat exciting to look through pictures of all the lovely new models and watch them progress from there to the shelf of a shop. I get that he wants to protect his wo...

Re: Tonglington Abbey & St. Renock Quay Kato N Gauge Unitrack Layouts

Last update for this moment, I've pics to go through and resize. These pics start out with filling my card formed contours with newspaper to build up support for underneath the surface, I used cheap wood glue/pva from Dealz(I think) for this. The round card island is where I will install a ringfort....

Sorry to hear of your loss, it can come pretty hard when you are busy at work and you need time to greive. When you get back to normal can you update us with the Hattons Royal Mail DPD saga.
