  1. another vote for modelu wr lamps. as it happens i ordered more this afternoon.
  2. I wanted to enter the "study" this morning to a busy scene on Cwm Risca. When I say study I mean small messy room! Anyway I set up the shots last night and I think the station board is getting there now. I went a bit mad with the track weathering yesterday and had to back track as they say as it went a bit orange ! A bit of sleeper grime brought things back to the brown look I'm looking for. The signal box went yesterday in with lines path and foot crossing. Bit of weathering to be done on the crossing if the glue has set this morning?
  3. Do Dapol have a launch day like Hornby etc? Just wondering if anything new in 0 gauge will be of interest this year and how one becomes aware of updates?
  4. Any one know if this is still on track ? It's something to look forward to in these depressing times !
  5. That makes more sence i must say but I presume skytrex who made these modeled them on a prototype somewhere ? Perhaps one day I'll file them off so they look " sown" shut, once I decided what colour I'm painting them !
  6. I'm trying to find out what colour a 1930 potato sack would be In general? Or any sack for that I'm just pretending they have potatoes in them. Could be turnips ! I've gone from ( r to l ) cream - stone - dunkelgerb as I have them spare ! I've Avoided a brown colour as I was thinking of a bit of light weathering with powders ?? Any idea - tips? Mean while the signal box door gets another coat of gwr loco green as its spare ! Should be able to put it in place and finish off the path today? Station track work has been

  8. Not much going on this morning as a trip to the dr will disrupt the rail gang shortly! But we have got the Dapol signal working. Even if it's the wrong signal or at least in the wrong place. Hopefully Dapol will produce an 0 gauge junction signal soon? Glazing in the signal box later and a bit of door painting and light weathering ?
  9. Ok I'm like you in that I dont seal just top up powders. Had my first spray gun for 6 months but still not opened it up as yet lol. One day soon I hope to get it going and try not to mess things up !!
  10. Really nice. Do you seal the weathering powders? If so what with?
  11. A couple of days if illness have delayed work but thankfully today a few hours have been put in. I'd run out of the 00 gauge ballast so ordered a small bag from wws (ebay). It took 3 days to come despite the " factory " only being a mile up the road from me ! When it did it turns out 250g is not as much as I hoped for lol. So some of the tunnel board was done using the wws and some with some courser grade ballast I had left over a from holts model railways on a previous layout. I then went as far to siv the course stuff to produce some very fine / almost dust ballast that will act
  12. Busy day at Cwm Risca. Mainly as tomorrow will be quiet! Added some recycled bushes that started life on my 00 diesel layouts. The break the join between back scenes and layout bosrd nicely and there is just enough room to back the delivery truck down. Cottage has gained an apple tree and a coal delivery has come in ! With luck the station and signal can be added tonight and then the watered down pva left ho go off till Saturday
  13. Couple of plan B projects to do today? I've been trying to get hold of David Woolnough who is an excellent artist and has done previous back drop work for me. Thats work in progress so a photo backdrop was added to give me an idea of what it could look like? Measure twice put up once is a new version but for now I'll ignore the gap inthe photo backdrop lol. No ballast in today's post and the other peco tunnel only ordered today so it uit will be a couple or three extra days till I can finish the tunnel section off but hope to make a start today. Plan B on the station as the failed first attemp
  14. Water tower added to the goods loop. This is a rtr Bachmann tower re painted and modified (fixed after it fell on the floor!) More weathering to be done to the tracks where the lococs stop to top up. Earth worm path from railway workers cottage to the signal box and station also put in. . Got a skytrex platform mounted water Crane to be built and added to the platform for the auto train on tofmdays "to do" list. First however is room tidy up and back scenes to be mounted. Started work on the tunnel board by using up the last of the wws ballast I had. Ran out just short of the tunnel
  15. Having done more than I planned sunday, I did nothing yesterday! But today some foliage arrived so I filled in a few gaps in the grass. Got more coming to blend in so its little and often? Station temporarily put in place to judge a few things. Mainly where the signal will go later ? Another was is the goods loop water tower going onthe station board or the tunnel board. Station board got the vote! Track weathering started with the base coat of " brake dust." I find this give a better look of rusty rails than actual rust paint! Got rusty colours to add to break the uniformity of it and some oi
