Re: Southern Valley Railway- Going Underground

Firstly I would like to apologise for my abscence of late for updating my threads over the last year or so. The layout has since been dismantled following a house move and a new basic circular "train set" and a end to end BR/LT more detailed layout as a longer term project. I will start a ...

Re: LSWR M7

I take no credit for any of the excellent modeling displayed in my previous post or the idea of using LNER transfers as far as I know they are Matt's. The only reason I flagged it up was I was planning touse the same transfers for lining my locos.

Re: LSWR M7

HMRS LNER lining transfers are suitable as they have the same white black white lines. These have been used to great effect by Matt on his dean sidings Radial kit which can be seen on his workbench. I hope he doesn't mind me quoting the correct section for you to see how he used them. OliverSR Updat...

Re: SVR Workbench-Bachmann Junior

Following with the success with the prairie I decided to have a go at some more lining. For my next project I was going to repaint a Bachmann Junior saddle tank as the Metropolitan Pecket Saddle tank but in London transport livery. http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5021/5609565668_b2e804a230_z.jpg The B...

Re: SVR Workbench-LT Prairie

I have not really made any progress with the 14xx as once I tried re-assembling the train its running was not satisfactory and so I have begun dissasembling the chassis but I have since boxed the project away for the time being. I have been doing other modeling however As someone who has an interest...

Re: BMR Workbench, Met Coaches, P's, H2, U-Class, Adams Radi

Thank you for the pointer - the guide is incredibly helpful, I have bookmarked the thread and am going to read though the wealth of information but at 22 pages it might take awhile :lol: what would be really cool is to covert it all into a book 'Modelling the Bluebell Railway'! With the SECR locos ...

Re: 3D Printing –Met Chesham Coaches, 4mm/OO, GN Saloon.

Looking good matt. It must be satisfying to finally have something in your hand. With my loco I used the most expensive frosted ultra detail so you might want to look at my pictures to compare what detail you get for your money.
I look forward to the finished item eventually.

Re: 3D Printing –Met Chesham Coaches, 4mm/OO, GN Saloon.

Good to hear the project is still moving forward. That is thing with 3D printing that it all needs to be perfect and error free before you print it. I know with my Met loco I had it 'finished' many times before I spotted something that needed changing or problem of some kind so it took many months o...

Re: 3D Printing – Metropolitan Chesham Coaches, 4mm/OO

Glad to hear of the progress with the coaches. Its good that you have teamed up as it is a big and complicated project with lots of details to get right as coaches are much more intricate than the 'glorified box' of a met loco I did. I eagerly await the august update and I am intrigued by this other...

Re: SVR Workbench-K's 14xx

Deeftrundle-You and Matt were the people who I think I saw using the smokebox painting technique which I have tried on this project and will use in future. Matt-I am still waiting to hear from Radley Models as to how the moulding is going and hopefully will revive a test kit for the loco sooner or l...

Re: SVR Workbench-K's 14xx

Thanks for the positive feedback. The loco has had further tidying up and I have found the gold paint so picked out the whistle which is molded on(even though this isn.t great I am not overly fussed and it would be more trouble than its worth to replace in my opinion). http://i1133.photobucket.com/a...

Re: SVR Workbench-K's 14xx

The 3D printed Metropolitan loco is currently with Radley Models for moulds to me taken so in the mean time I thought I would have a go at another quick project. This is the loco in question a K's 14XX which I recently picked up and wanted to restore. http://i1133.photobucket.com/albums/m595/Souther...

The parts have been filed and dry fitted.
Here is a photo to give an idea of what the finished model will look like.
