New OO layout

Postby eaw458 » Fri Jan 12, 2007 2:27 pm


Some pics of my OO layout, which I started a few months ago. Still loads to do, but one or two corners are shaping up.

Comments welcome, as are ideas on what to do with the empy space in the middle left!

thats looking pritty darn fantastic some great detail their how have you done the rocky bits on the hill i want to make something along those lines myself?

defo a goods shed in those sidings behind the station & a small village scene in that open space would make that a lovely model & the small buildings by wills & dapol etc etc would make it look a bit bigger because more buildings in it

They're plaster bandage over a frame made out of 6mm MDF with cardboard cross-strips. I then gave this a basic coat of black emulsion and completed them by dry-brushing with increasingly paler coats of browny-grey until almost white.

Great job Walter,

Love the weathering of the rails. Scenery above tunnel is fantastic.

A tip to everybody : Take a bit of aluminium foil 30 x 30 cm's ( the ones that yr mom or wife uses in the kitchen. Crumble it in yr hands then open it up in the shape of a bowl. Pour in some plaster of paris. wait for it to dry. Voila ! you have bits an pieces of rock formations. Paint them the color you desire.

If there ain't trains in heaven then I'm not going

Looking good, personally I think a village would look a little out of place, some sort of quarry working seeing as it's recessed would look good.

You could try expanding sidings up to the retaining wall? Looking extremely good though!!!!
Is it your first layout?

I really like it. Kind of think I have taken on more than I can chew after seeing how good this looks.
