Re: Derby Friargate LNER Garage Layout

It's been a long time since my last post so a small update. Taking luckymucklebackit's. Advice I have completed a few small projects to share just some of them. I have completed the engineers train, consisting of an ex NER brake van (in place until I can find the GNR ballast brake van), two GN balla...

Re: Galgorm Hall 00 Gauge Loft Layout

Haha Paul with regards to your reply to my last comment, I will put together an update soon with all the little stuff I've been doing, but regards to your tunnel it looks really good at this stage.

Re: Galgorm Hall 00 Gauge Loft Layout

Great stuff Paul, I've been busy in the background, building white metal vehicles and some wagons along with a bit of scratch building. I had a bit of a set back, having used flux while soldering I failed to remove any residue resulting in the seep point motors corroding .. Basicly destroyed all the...

Re: Galgorm Hall 00 Gauge Loft Layout

I really like the tones and the texture effect of the grass you have created. I would love to be able to master this, which in your case I believe you have. I will eventually have a couple of small grass areas on my layout and have been looking at grass mats rather than buying a static grass applica...

Re: Millsend Layout - OO Gauge Sixties Midland

Bloody brilliant, the over all look of it is just great, screams midland.I think that the chimneys look just right being in proportion with it's over all size.

Re: Millsend Layout - OO Gauge Sixties Midland

I think that it looks very much improved for setting the pillars in depth from the edge of the platform. And I am quite impressed by the fact of the shirt amount of time from planing to where you are now with it. It's got all the marks of being another Millsend classic.

Re: Derby Friargate LNER garage layout

Thanks for all the previous kind comments, to answer about the cost well I don't want to add it up to be honest but I know that this little chemist shop building has had a small fortune spent to produce it.
