Think I will need to put some commissions your way - lets start with a J35, then maybe a J37 and a D34 "Glen" :D

Magnificent. I do admire that Pacific. What a ride.

G'day Gents

I've drifted back to the C1, no real reason, I've added the rear trailing wheels and the axleboxes, and the filled in under and around the smokebox, a B12 chimney and a brass dome has also been fitted.

Hi Manna,
Ive just been through your entire thread. What an amazing achievement you've produced for yourself. I really enjoyed the J15 as I have a bit of a soft spot for them. The J17 came up brilliantly also.

Ive been wanting to find some hanging basket liner for grass but here in qld we dont seem to have the same products available in the U.k. have you had any luck with the teddy fur?

Hi Josh

Thanks for looking through the thread, it'll continue until I die or to daft to do any more.

teddy bear furs, not to bad, but it's a bit long, it would be about 7-8 feet high if you left it alone, I trim mine back to 3 feet or 12 mill and with a bit of green paint it 'tuft's' up nicely, but I'm still going to add a bit of that electro static grass to it ( when I remember to do it, bit like the ballast)

Cheers mate,
Ill try buy some fur fabric from spotlight and give it a go. I see treemendus sell fur fabric for grass and its very fine strands so I might try match it.
I havent managed to find much in the way of tutorials on sticking it to the baseboard. Do you glue the entire thing down and try to blend the edge of the fabric backing somehow? Or does it work in the same method as hanging basket liner where you glue the face down and pull it up leaving fibers behind?
Im guessng the second would be near impossible with a fabric backing but thought id ask!

G'day Josh.

I just glue the teddy bear fur down with PVA glue (undiluted) I often hold it in place with pins (100 for a $1) and small weights and bottles of glue, once it's all dry, that's when I trim it.

G'Day Josh.

Manna, your scratch building of locos is simply amazing.

I wouldn't know where to start, I'll just stick to buildings :D
