Re: blackwell lane TMD

For a first attempt at a layout this is really impressive. It looks like you have been railway modelling for years. My first layout will commence very shortly. I just hope I can even come fairly close to the level you have produce here.

WIll enjoy further updates of this layout.

Re: Triang Hornby Hymek Motor Problems

Thanks for the comments. I'm not sure I have the ability to mash together another motor into my Hymek. I've just bought a more recent green model of the Hymek. Will maybe sell the blue one if this new one is a runner!! If anything I think the green one is a much nicer looking model.

Triang Hornby Hymek Motor Problems

I have just bought a job lot of hornby items one of which includes the R.758 Triang Hornby Hymek. Unfortunately the model is a non runner and I was trying to find a source for servicing this motor. I am a self confessed novice when it comes to the electrics and need some help in trying to bring this...

Re: Show us your weathering skills...

Revisited the box van to try and give it a little bit of dirt and dust about it. The black acrylic wash just wasn't enough in my opinion. As pleased as I am with the outcome I think I can see the benefits of an airbrush.

Re: Show us your weathering skills...

These weathered items look great.

Without the use of an airspray how can you get that splattered dirt effect that has been so well portrayed here?

My weathering stretches to acrylic washes. Have just completed this Hornby box van.

Simple Weathering Progress

While I continue to gather up track for my layout I have continued to prepare some of the fixtures and fittings. Having completed the Dapol engine shed a couple of weeks ago I have turned to rolling stock and buffers. My weathering techniques are limited and am still learning but thought I would sha...

Re: Peco Points Track Question

Thanks for the responses. I have come across codes such as SLE-99x etc and wondered if this was a slight varient on the standard SLE-99. Perhaps as you say, it was an earlier codingfor the same track.

Can someone tell me what this means and is it compatible wi...

Re: Dapol Engine Shed

Thanks Tony. Would you put a spray matt lacquer on after to stop it from being rubbed off? It will be some time before this kit sees a position on a layout so will probably be handled a bit before that.

Great job mate. The brickwork looks amazing with a little wash on it.

Re: Dapol Engine Shed

Thanks terrier. I picked it up on ebay for £6 and was sceptical about the quality of the kit but was pleasantly surprised. Be interested to see your result when you get yours finished.

Baseboard design

Hi all, Are they any programmes out there to assist in designing the actual baseboard for your model layout. I am somewhat amateurish when its comes to woodwork and felt that a plan laid out before me would help me to keep everything in order when it comes to cutting up the timbers. Many thanks in a...

Re: Millfield. Attempting a layout with a helix (or two)!

I think it would take more than a 24 pack of Diet Coke to get my head round constructing something like this. Fantastic job. Stunning woodwork. I shake your hand sir.
