Lugsdale Road - The Perfect Crime

Don't tell anyone especially the Domestic Overlord, but being the sneaky little chap that I am, I managed over the weekend to actually do some emulsion painting. 
In my opinion this was massively successful for at least two reasons, the first being that the painting was the actually to the backscenes on Lugsdale Road and not a wall in Price mansions,...

Modelling time, in fact any free time has been in very short supply lately, despite a career change that in theory would have given me more time to model, I appear to have an uncanny ability to fill this time with lots of none modelling stuff :(. As a result of this, perhaps I should have tittle this blog entry as "spot the progress"? One of the jobs...

Lugsdale Road - a little progress at a very slow pace

Progress on Lugsdale Road has been very, very slow of late, with the pressures of non modelling life taking up huge amounts of time, though any progress is a good thing? In my last update I mentioned that I would need a lot more buildings just on board 1 to try and create the cramped, dirty industrial town look I am trying to recreate. Then living in...

Well a tiny bit of progress has been made on the layout, in an attempt to create a "typical" industrial town. The problem is I will need a lot more buildings, perhaps I should have just modelled a nice rural location?

Im going to need a lot more buildings, and then they will need a lot of weathering.......is it two late to just start again, I mean all I...

What is it with time? Lately I am convinced that the only reason it exists is to wind me up. I have noticed for a while now that its been trying to get to me, but it's not going to beast me despite its latest crafty trick, but I have spotted its latest ploy and I'm putting it down in text so others can be forewarned. Have you noticed that they l...

I don't know how it happened, but I have managed to get a little modelling time over the last few days, so in a break away from producing endless buildings I thought I would work on my Tram idea. My initial idea was to try an add a little more movement to the new layout other than just the trains, I know there are various systems available to produce...

The last few weeks have been what could be called manic to say the least, the strange thing is you can always seem to find extra hours to spend at work, but you can never find hours to spend on modelling. As a result modelling time has been like a Midget Drug Dealer, in Very Short Supply, anyway I digress as a n LMS fan I managed to find a prototype...

Well spare time to actually do anything lately has been in incredibly short supply, and progress on any projects has almost stopped. With my recent lack of attendance lately I reckon the chaps at the Warrington Model Railway club must think I have given up on model railways and taken up a another hobby. Anyway on the weekend the postman delivere...

The modelling gods must be smiling on me lately or maybe they just pity me as they gave me a little more modelling time today, so I thought I would do a little more work on the buildings for Lugsdale Road. I still working on my plan to gain access to the inside of a pub only so I can do some research on the interior, so that I can make a better model...

I'm not sure how this has happened but recently I seem to be finding just enough modelling time to actually make noticeable progress on may latest projects. So much so that the corner Pub I have been building for Lugsdale road now has its front sides fully glazed. I have even managed to apply a little colour to the roof and a little detail on the chimney...

Well despite the lack of presents at Christmas from Santa, I must have been a good boy as the Domestic Overlord let me have a little time off from my chores to do some modelling :) So I got my paints out and decided to apply the final finish to the fa├žade on the corner pub for the new layout, the aim was to portray a stucco finish on the upper floors...

Well I have had a couple of days off , because the people at work claimed it was Christmas, but I had my doubts as if it was Christmas that would mean the Fat Man in the Red Suit would bring me some presents. So I laid in wait to see if this Christmas rumour was true, and hoped if it was I would actually get a present this year, or I would spend anot...

It might just be my glacial pace, but the construction of the buildings on Lugsdale road is taking slightly longer than I planned, but they have got to the stage of getting their first coat of colour. I'm looking to create a typical urban look of an average town in the Northwest, so a bit like me the shabby look is the one I'm aiming for, so the firs...

I'm sure you are all getting bored with my updates on this project, so I think I will start to increase the length of time between updates, at least for the following 2 reasons. 1. There are far better things to read about on this forum. 2. If I post too many, the Domestic Overlord may conclude that I have too much free time, so increase the lis...

Well in my last blog, I told you that the Domestic Overlord had allowed me to have my felt tips back, well I have been a very good boy, as this weekend I was allowed my glue as well. Being positively angelic, the Domestic Overlord even allowed me so time to "play with my trains" as my reward for being good, or maybe it was just to get rid of me for a...

Well a little time, and I mean a little time was spent working on the plan for the urban setting on board 1 which has meant that the Domestic Overlord even let me have my felt tip pens back (I'm not allowed my crayons back, as apparently if you eat them it does not colour you on the inside :( ) After I promised to use them properly I used them to fle...

Well despite being feeling decidedly off form and weak due to the effects of my condition (the Domestic Overlord reckons I'm a condition all of my own) I have managed to get the second board completed. All I have to do is finish, or rather start the storage yard board and the layout legs, but these can wait for a while, as even a Woodworking GOD like me n...

Well I managed to find a little time this weekend to spend on the baseboards for the new layout, on Foster Street my other layout I constructed the baseboards with plywood, and as an experiment to create lightweight boards I used glue and pins in the construction. This led to a very lightweight and strong build, and they seem to have lasted well, but...

Well a couple of weeks ago, I decided to make a start on a new layout, this one was to be a small space (made up of two 4feet x 2feet boards not including fiddle yard) and is to be a terminus station, somewhere in the Northwest. A little initial work, resulted in the cutting of a couple of sheets of plywood into a kit of parts to create the baseboard...
