I may have a touch of OCD

Postby BRPannierTank » Mon Jul 24, 2017 7:07 am

I have been working on some seating for my small platform, they are the Metcalfe GWR Benches (PO501).

They look very nice when made up straight from the box however I decided to paint mine a GWR chocolate brown colour as this appears to be the most common colour (from looking on the internet).

I have added a few people, all I do to these is give their faces a wash with Agrax Earthshade. The Dog is by Woodland Scenics. He is going to be sat on the platform looking at his owner has she unwraps a sweet.

Now I know trains can be very detrimental to the health of a dog should said beast get under it's wheels and in keeping with the very strict (yeah right) health and safety regulations of 1950's BR, dogs are only allowed if on a lead. This is where my OCD seems to have raised it's ugly head, I added a lead made from stretched sprue, it took me several attempts but I got the thickness more or less right. I have attached it to the lady's hands, the dog will just slide up to it so I can pull him away when dusting, that way the lead will not get broken. I hope.

Not at all!
Have you seen the lengths I go to, to furnish interiors that no one will ever actually see fully if at all? :lol:
But modelling satisfaction abounds! :D

I have the same benches but am yet to start building them.
Thanks

I may have a touch of OCD


It's almost a foregone conclusion that it will be apparent amongst modellers, (not just railway), just as there's a higher incidence of dyslexia and mildly autistic tendencies. We are just instilling the correct order of things, as we see it should be, in a world which we can control.
I'm a hopeless case not only a lifelong modeller but a steady progression into the virtual world of computers and IT systems. No matter how deeply you think you understand the insides of a computer you will discover it is an illusion designed to allow the human brain to see order that it can understand.

Isn't it CDO? (OCD in alphabetical order?)
