Re: Frankland: N gauge Southern Railway

I've had a couple of telegrammes I see. And it would be quite rude to ignore them. London calling, London calling ... Well here's an interim update of sorts for those that solely inhabit NRM ... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Aeroplane Trip Over...

Re: Trouvé - not that far from Perdu!

I was just popping by for a catch-up on Trouvé (not that far from Perdu!), but seem to have landed at rather a controversial moment :shock: Firstly to say I'm really impressed with how things have come along - the 'ghost sign' on the side of your building is a nicely observed detail, and the extensi...

Infrontcat, I thought you'd fallen by the wayside.

Any railway news from you?

Ditto - great to see you back.

This was one of my great early inspirations and had come to think it had fallen by the wayside. So glad to learn I was wrong :)

Re: ParkeNd's Autumn Competition attempt - Railway Cottages

Just a suggestion - but cocktail sticks make good chimney pots in N gauge.

Top and tail the spikey bits, slice them down and paint them up. No fuss, little cost, quick and effective :)

Re: Corgi Tram modee'fied...in progress.

'Then a couple of rebuilds in monochrome with satin finish touching up. The backgrounds are from some tram issues, blown up by 200% , which makes me tempted to create a monochrome layout with a couple of grey scale trams to replicate old films!! Could be cool-literally !'! Certainly that would be a...

Re: South Lascombe

The boards / levels are coming together nicely, particularly the sweeping curve along the coastline. I think it's always quite satisfying when the foundations for the trackbed and associated landscape are finally constructed and you can better visualise how things will eventually look. I noticed you...

Re: Spearestone, Kent coast in N

Very atmospheric Mr C.

The only thing missing is a little mist rolling off the sea :)

Have you thought of modelling that - a little dry-ice or something - just for experiment / a fun post ? :)

Either way thanks for the update.

I think whether it's SMH in general or these points in particular, the expression applicable to both is 'A Labour of Love'.

Re: Notroh's Feb 2015 competition Thread

I love this to bits.

So authentic and original, full of eccentric character and totally of it the era. The attention to scenics/detail/character are impressive in my books :)

Sorry if this has been posted before but I love watching Jacques Tati films :)

Re: layout design, help/advice needed

Hello Michaelaface, I'd agree with VerdevaleRailway, firstly define where your interests lay (Shunting? /Just watching trains run round? / Prototypical accuracy? / Landscaping? / 'A flavour of' overall atmosphere?) ... My other suggestion would be to keep it simple (less is more), at least initially...

Re: Andrew's Layout

Glad I'm not out on those streets tonight - they look cold and forbidding to say the least! :shock: It's great to be reminded of the jaw-dropping modelling / atmosphere you've achieved on Leith Baltic Street Andy. Totally inspirational. For some reason my favourite detail has to be the illuminated '...
