Re: I wonder what George & Robert would think now?

I think they'd marvel at the progress made, and possibly be astounded that the original bridge and formation was still there!

Re: ADDISON ROAD - KENSINGTON OLYMPIA SET IN THE 1920'S IN 7MM

Ooh, one of my favourite layouts about at the moment! Twickenham is a bit far for me, but I look forward to seeing this at an exhibition one day, when things are back to normal. :)

Re: Wood Kits

With wood I'd want to prime it with something first, then you can use whichever paint you fancy.

Re: All things paint!

Ah yes, you did point me towards Phoenix paints and I did get some which I'm experimenting with at the minute. I have applied paint to plastic models and its never looked that great, but I've not used a primer. I have on a base board but not on plastic. With this advice I will get a primer and begi...

Re: All things paint!

Once you've put a primer of some kind on it doesn't really matter what sort of paint you use on what surface, that's what the primer is there for. Most people have a preference for either enamel or acrylic. I recall pointing you towards phoenix paints for NSE colours before. Phoenix paints are all e...

Re: A new start in Finescale OO: NSR Stone junction station

Thanks Geoff! Well I've been laboriously scribing platform edging slabs for the last couple of days - the silhouette can only help so much here. The NSR's were quite characteristic, and I also have a distinct memory of Grandad drawing my attention to the short length the Churnet Valley have in their...

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the South.

Wow, what a super layout! I really like the lighting, you've managed to get it just right in my view. And I really enjoyed that last video you posted, gosh sound is tempting. :) In moderation fs123 - in moderation!

Re: The Purist

Did he explain why it wouldn't work ? Or was it just a case of he wouldnt have done it like that ? Some "that won't work" advice is worth listening to, some isn't. If he's telling you that something physically won't fit then he may be saving you a lot of grief later. Somewhere on either h...

Re: A new start in Finescale OO: NSR Stone junction station

Thanks gents. As I've said before Manna, it's partly your fault, all your loco builds contributed to encouraging me to build my own stock. Glencairn, I think I must be lucky in the way I look at things, when I'm building something I see all the faults like I'm sure everyone else does of their own wo...

Re: where are the members ???????

Personally I don't see what a Facebook group will do, it might even risk taking some existing activity away from the forum. This forum actually performs quite well on google searches in terms of visibility, so I don't think a Facebook group would help much in that respect either. @Alex3410 Perhaps r...

Re: Highland Railway Buildings

That is extremely tasty! Is that stonework effect really all just that painted ply? Very nicely done either way. I do have a hankering to do a layout set up north somewhere where a chunky, dark weathered stone was prevalent, there's something about it that really does it for me.

Re: A new start in Finescale OO: NSR Stone junction station

Thank you for those compliments! More fairly soon, as these are approaching the phase where just a little work brings it all together! Well I clearly lied there. As so often happens, I get distracted with other things . I only picked those carriage sides up again a few days ago in the same condition...

Re: Scratchbuilt GWR Toplights

Rather than create new threads every time I start (or even occasionally finish) a random bit of modelling unconnected with my main layout interests, I'll carry on posting them here, and update the thread title to reflect the latest thing. Once I've put up the few projects that I've quietly been work...
