Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

Hi End2 Half panel mould, your right that would be useful. I have a single one for brickwork along with other pieces on one of the green moulds. But I don't appear to have a stone one at all. If Scalecast don't produce one then maybe Dublo moulds will. S3 mould has a half tile in stone. If you don'...

Re: Linka

Possibly a good deal for someone due to a spelling mistake in the listing. 4 moulds and ancillary items. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HO-OO-GAUGE-LINK-BOXED-SET-LOOK-LIKE-SOME-PARTS-NEVER-USED-D18/202661296433?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20190212142712%26meid%3D7ceff10fa5...

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

Advice from Timbologist is not to have tiles directly above each other! Like brickwork, offset the design by 1/2 a tile on each level, if you can. It breaks up the joins to the eye and is stronger.

Re: Linka

Hello all I too have been experimenting with Linka. I have had a go at producing my own moulds. My first attempt has been with using standard Linka tiles assembled into a panel. I have decided to use Latex as my mould material, for this first experiment I bought a bottle of Copydex. This was painte...

Re: Linka

Well done Timbersurf, these are great. I would certainly be interested in buying some too. Could I be cheeky and ask about Church Lancet window's. It is certainly not cheeky! It's what forums are for! lol The Stone moulds are more complicated, as they can be made up to various heights. I want to so...

Re: Linka

It also struck me that steel bars would be easy to add, giving a Jail/Security look! :D

Re: Linka

So all 3 brick moulds are done and I am now experimenting with the inner design. I started with 1mm diamonds, which equates to 3 inch in the real world, maybe a tad too small, but looks good in small windows. 2mm (6 inch) looks a bit big, so here is the 1.5mm, leaded diamonds with colours in. Not su...

Re: Linka

I am designing diamond pattern for ALL moulds! Plus some with centre join/reinforcement bar, plus coloured lights. Once the design is complete, I will print/test/tweak to the Linka tiles with paper and eventually print with acetate. Once I am happy, I will publish on my website for all to download a...

" Crown glass was an early type of window glass. In this process, glass was blown into a "crown" or hollow globe. This was then transferred from the blowpipe to a punty and then flattened by reheating and spinning out the bowl-shaped piece of glass (bullion) into a flat disk by centri...

By use of greys and transparency settings, yes, but surely they would be in squares as shown in the pic and not in diamond pattern leaded windows?

Re: Linka

A quick knock up test in CAD, produces this, the LUMSDONIA text is 3mm high. The lines are set at 0.18mm wide, they may end up a bit thin when printed, so may have to beef them up to look more realistic on the model. lumsdonia Windows 2mm Diamond BW Screenshot.jpg If you can be patient, there is lit...
