  1. Hookton Update number oh! not another one. Railcar misadventure The push me pull you version. Note this is raw video which shows that you should always have the fiddle stick connected and to stop driving before running into the rockface. https://www.facebook.com/michael.bragg.399/videos/10219912570110931
  2. Update number the best part of some considerable amount: Jerky video of Railcar just to show it works; https://www.facebook.com/michael.bragg.399/posts/10219911527924877?notif_id=1624444619586323&notif_t=feedback_reaction_generic&ref=notif
  3. Update number eighty twelve! Just bodging. Rail-car slowly getting there and I've started painting figures.

  5. Update (too many to count) Hookton harbour and surrounds: The Rainbow is still not fixed as I need to finish work on the buildings behind where she will be moored.

  7. Started to work on the harbour bottom. First experimented with colours to get the basic effect, then I have added the ground cover which when finished will be overpainted . I have added a fall pipe discharging water into the harbour., the white glue is still wet, once dry it will be coloured with washes.
  8. Just a little bit more on "Rainbow" I have decided as she will be moored I will leave the nets off and their booms lowered. Deadeyes rigging, fat fingers and failing eyesight - Okay it's a cop out Now for the weathering and final details. The ships wheel is a Ratio plastic wagon wheel with the flange removed. In the background the railbus stripped of paint thanks to an overnight in Dettol.

  10. I'm proposing to use Chinchilla dust mixed with cork dust as a base. I think that being 0 gauge I might be able to get away with a little more texture. I too aim to use weathering pigments and washes. I will be experimenting on a trial piece away from the layout.
  11. Hookton update; Started adding colour to the boat. Once I have completed it I can move on to the harbour mud and grot. Meanwhile the Rio Bus bodies are soaking in Dettol to remove the paint

  13. Started work on the boat albeit slowly, the wheelhouse is only placed for effect as there is still lots to do. It will need a good clean before any paint gets near it.
  14. Thought it was about time to start building the boat and for no particular reason I tried a couple of figures on the benches. The cabin is not fitted to the deck housing as it needs a lot more work to complete.
