Toddington in 00

Postby swiftbeam » Mon Dec 25, 2017 1:11 pm

Hi Guys,

I'm making a cut down Toddington. It will run from the road bridge to the first tunnel, but only be 20 foot long. The base boards are made, pics to follow. I will use this thread to update my progress. I've now got several Toddington locos, some are renamed and numbered already :D

So here we go, the first mini project finished.

I 'finished' to a basic starting point one of the stations last night for the new layout. It's an approximate model of the platform 2 Toddington station building. The whole layout is based on Toddington. I started with a Bachmann Scenecraft 44-073 and modified it from there. I'm not going to make The layout an exact model of Toddington because I don't have the space, time or will power, but it will be undeniably and recognisably Toddington. Most buildings will be shop bought (to save time) and then modified, as is the case with this one.

It looks a lovely building. Resin is an easy material to work with. If you do end up with mistakes, use das modelling clay as a cheap filler.

I'll be replacing the valencing and painting it in the colours a little closer.
