  1. Thank you for your kind words, it was mostly Humbrol Enamel that I used for the various shades of brown and orange. The wash I can’t think of off the top of my head, but I will certainly have a look and get back to you.
  2. Hello all, Just a quick update to share with you all. I've been doing quite a lot in the background but thought I would share this with you all. GNR(I) Y5 Passenger Van from Provincial Wagons. Available as a resin kit or Ready To Run (RTR). The kit is complete with metal buffer heads, metal wheels, tension lock couplings and transfers. Email Leslie McAllister at, [email protected] or check out rest of the range on the Provincial Wagons website. Stay safe everyone! Nelson.
  3. Hello all, I thought I would share my efforts at reproducing Teak/Mahogany using Mikes method. Im pleased to report everything went well and I'm very happy. Nonetheless with more practise I'm sure it's able to perfect the technique. Thank you for sharing the great guide, it only took me many years to actually get round to carrying it out.

  4. Hello everyone, I hope we are all safe and sound during these awful times! The only good thing to come from it however is more time at the workbench! For me I have now finished university, and due to the pandemic it was a rush of chaotic mayhem, but I'm glad to say everything is done and dusted! I was also selected for a job interview, but due to the virus, this has been postponed. So it's just a waiting game. Enough about real world problems, me and rubbish! I almost visit the forum daily and it's just so good to check out what other people are getting up to. S
  5. Hello everyone, Excuse me me if there is already a topic on this, but I did try the forum search engine and Google search to no avail. I was wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of LMS (20/30s) road vehicle transfers in 4mm, it can be for buses, lorries or trailers.... I'm starting my search wide. I don't mind if they are waterslide or rub down either! I did try sunrise and fox transfers, but they don't seem to have anything apart from a sheet of "LMS" lettering. Thank you in advance, Nelson.
  6. Making great progress on this! I too like many others have this kit hidden away in the stash. Yours is looking well, keep at it!
  7. Hello everyone! I just recently finished this diorama, I hope you like it! Here is a bit more information for anyone interested... Peenemünde, Northern Germany, 12th November, 1945. Anyone with a basic understanding of pulse jet engines will realise that the model as portrayed... Would simply not be feasible in real life. Hence why I have based it upon a "alternate" history, outlined within the title above. The kit was supposed to be a stand alone, few evenings worth... But this changed into a fully fledged diorama within a couple of days. Th
  8. This is how I have achieved brickwork on my models. Indeed there is no correct way, but this is how I have done mine, 1) Spray whole model with red primer 2) Whitewash the whole model for mortar 3) Dry brush your selected colour onto the model in a diagonal fashion (I prefer enamels as they dry slower and tend to dry flat without any sheen from the dry brushing) 4) Usually at this point weathering takes place, I first of all use a weak brown wash for the mortar and use various browns and oranges for picking out the different bricks (via the dry brushing again).
  9. I would also assume that this is the locomotive mentioned by JB above as seen on another forum. I hope this helps! https://irishrailwaymodeller.com/topic/8137-malahide-opening/ Nelson.
  10. Is this the colour being discussed? I have attached screenshots of the video to refer to, just incase anyone can't it find it. Nelson.
  11. What a superb build! And I really enjoy reading each post you publish, fantastic!
  12. Also on sale in Northern Ireland as of today. At £10 more expensive tho.... Still excellent value for money.
  13. I rather enjoyed the first episode and I'm looking forward to the second one!
  14. Hopefully no news is good news on this one, certainly looking forward to its arrival!
