n gauge finescale, lms terminus and 6 more...
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...


How to add movement to N gauge streets

lugsdale road, tram, n gauge and 6 more...
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...


Surburban Sprawl - OR - I wish I would have started a rural branch terminus

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...


Mission Impossible - OR - How Do I Get to Carry Out Some Research

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...


Fiddling On The Roof - Have I Missed Christmas?

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...


Getting Bored with Board 1 - First Baseboard nearly complete?

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...

LMS n gauge, teminus layout and 3 more...
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...
