    Lambs Leap. A Devon byway..........

    Bleat Wharf. A bucolic corner of the dear old S&DJR in 4mm, modelled in a state of distress. { The railway, not me }

    Mutton, an odd corner of the splendid old L&SWR inhabited by some fine examples of Victorian engineering and blessed with unflincing eternal optimism.

    Sheep Dip, an small industrial something, somewhere or thereabouts, where rather charming little green engines can scamper about.

    Throughout all of this, I continue to explore the possible modelling applications of Swedish furniture.

    The photography of Norman Lockhart and Ivor Peterborough documents the molluscesque progress of all matters.

    Bath Railway Enthusiasts And Sylvan Travel Society. {B.R.E.A.S.T.S}

    Refining the Horrocksford Shovel to the point of no return......

    Sheep and their involvement in the less well known corners of the S&DJR, the L&SWR and their role in all things railwaylike.

    And if course we must not forget The Memsahib, Memsahib Minor and NHY 581 Jnr.

  1. Evening all. Today has seen an occasional revisit to Westminster. A slight distressing using a 2mm fibre brush has been followed by further daubs of sand and white weathering powders and we are now at a point where I think the body at least is finished.........ish. I still need to weather the buffer beams and tweak the buffers. Further work to do on the chassis but not much more. Heres a few of Westminster and 7754. Rob.
  2. A touch of the monochrome at Sheep Dip. Rob.
  3. How do I press 'thanks ' and 'laugh' ? Morning Mikkel. With regards to the thread title, you may well be relieved to know that it was as much as I could fit in..... Bigger phones are available though....... Rob.
  4. Thanks Tim. Mine runs quite well but I had heard about the deeper flanges. Not sure of the rationale behind this or in fact if subsequent releases will see an amendment. That said, the little chap seems to cope with my run of the mill code 75 PECO, including the wobbly wobbly bits. Rob
  5. A couple of images of where we are at present. The chassis has had a bit of a seeing to. Wheels have been painted a darker green and weathered using a light dusting of dark earth, black to the wheel centres and coupling rods etc. Returning to the body, the top of the saddle tank was given a light dusting of dark earth. Emphasis was given to the lines of rivets dropping down the saddle tank using a bit of smoke. The odd spot of rust was added using iron oxide and rust, highlighted with a spot of white here and there. A bit more contrast is perhaps needed b
  6. Dodo has a drink before worrying a few 16t minerals. Rob.
  7. A final view tonight of Westminster at Bleat Wharf. The lighting seems a tad softer on Bleat than on S.D and seems to give a warmer image... It will also look a lot better when I weather the chassis. Rob.
  8. Evening all. Thanks for the interest, chaps. Further work carried out involving light and repeated applications of 'sand' and 'white'. As above daubed on, then worked in. Light spray of varnish to seal. Still a work in progress.
