n guage addition to the family

Probably not the most 'interresting' of layout concepts but this is my latest creation. In brief the idea was to have shelf layout which would run a very long low speed train concentrating on scenery mainly. You can see from the photos that there is a 3 lane siding behind the scenic background, this...

looking excellent Walter! Especially the 3D of the layout, simple but effective. It's all too easy to lay the track on the board and then build 'up', adds some depth by having the recessed area, great stuff! How about a boating lake with a central island? , a small harbour perhaps? or as was previou...

Lofty, the chainlink fencing came as part of collection of 'spares' from Kibri. I don't know what model they come with as the shop was just selling a plain clear bag of odds and ends. The wooden fencing is normal ratio stuff. The boat came from a model shop in Cookham, Bucks. Not sure if there is a ...

Thanks Shaun, I thought it might bring something a little different to the layout. Never built a resin kit before so quite pleased with the results so far.

I think the powders are acrylic based? I picked them up at a show, 6 small bags for a fiver so I thought I would try them out. Really easy to use but messy. This row of shops was completely unpainted apart from a quick spray of matt varnish to dull the 'plastic' look. The powder was applied with a r...
