Re: The Strogaloft - Construction Begins... Again!

Hello again! The last couple of days, I have been having a crack at building a motorway bridge. Built from scraps of cardboard, some card tubes, Superquick 'flintstone' paper, and a pack of Heki roadstrip... Have sprayed the supports with grey primer but I ran out after one spraying, so need some mo...

Re: The Strogaloft - Construction Begins... Again!

Re: My Model Railway - 1990-2011 TMD (In the Making)

Hi there. Great start and a very smart selection of stock there. Some nice subtle weathering on the 60's

Any plans to add a Loadhaul 60 to the fleet? :)

Re: Hood-dale Main - My first attempt at a layout!

Hi fikasfook,

Thats a great layout you've got there, how long have you been working on it ?

Great collection of stock, and some great attention to detail. The lighting looks really good too.

I like your diesel brake tender, is it a Genesis kit ?

Be sure to post more photos!

Re: Paggington Green - Extensive Scenery Work!!

Some fantastic scenic work there, you must have been putting the hours in!

I think the hand painted car parks/roads look fine... you could dirty them up a bit maybe with some weathering powders...

Cracking layout by the way, have only just had a good look through it! :)

I'm suprised Hornby havent used the ex-Lima Western in the Railroad range... as for looks, theres not a lot wrong with the Lima in my opinion!

Heljan Westerns - New Batch

Noticed this a few days ago and hadnt seen it mentioned here.... Heljan have announced a further batch of Class 52's due for release in Nov/Dec. The last batch seemed to sell rather well, so its good to see there is still plenty of demand for the model. They are doing the following variants: D1002 '...

Re: The Strogaloft - Construction Begins... Again!

Hello chaps. Yesterday I had a random desire to have a crack at scratch building... I decided to finally crack on and build the Motorail Terminal for the station, which I've been meaning to do for ages... So if you've ever wondered why I've got a random ramp letting cars drive onto the platform... h...

Re: The Strogaloft - Construction Begins... Again!

Have been rather productive the last few days... did a big session of rail-painting, done about half the layout in one session.... was a bit sloppy with the painting actually, but have cleaned up the rail surfaces and the locos are running fine... I am planning to airbrush the lot eventually, so tha...

Re: The Strogaloft - Construction Begins... Again!

Couple more pictures.... Have been playing around with scenics surrounding the TMD.... Bought a pack of Noch 'Grass Tufts', which seem quite effective. http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff219/DrStroganoff/P1010610.jpg http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff219/DrStroganoff/P1010598.jpg http://i238.ph...
