Re: Rheilffordd Cilcewydd - Croeso! Welcome!

nope not that one, just checked, it was june 2008, page 392-395 titled 'Elusive elements'

'..the tarmac areas were built up in thin plaster, smoothed with water and palette knife as it set to try to achieve a fairly smooth surface..'
im not smoothing mine, i was it to look a bit more rough

Re: Rheilffordd Cilcewydd - Croeso! Welcome!

thats what i mean, paint would come out a very obvious clean white line, while power would look a bit more realistic, plus i can brush dirt over it which would look better still

Re: Rheilffordd Cilcewydd - Croeso! Welcome!

Re: Rheilffordd Cilcewydd - Croeso! Welcome!

thats the latest plan for the extension: http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd42/Blaqkaudio009/2008juneplan2.jpg the loco and carriage sheds will hopefully be 'built into the mountain edge', but the track will continue out the back so i can store the wagons and carriages all in there.
