  1. Been thinking about doing some railway paintings recently. There are some good images of the area here, was wondering if you would object to me using the odd one as a reference picture?
  2. Finally got round to finishing off the Ratio kit for this LNER Lattice Jn starter.


  3. At the time of posting today a second layer of flok has gone on the grass areas. And a start has been made on putting something growing in the fields.
  4. Yesterday the first base layer of green went on, and the thing is starting to look a bit like a landscape now.
  5. Some texture was added to the cess and field areas, which were then painted over with "earth" colour once dry.
  6. The whole thing then got a coat of "earth" colour base coat.
  7. The contours of the landscape gradualy built over the foam with polyfilla over the following week...
  8. Having gotten the ballasting and track weathering done along with cable trunking. I progressed onto carving some foam and glued into place.
  9. Yes DJB whistle comes supplied with some for attaching to the repacement bango fitting to the whistle. Never had problems with the tube it's self but conections made with little tie wraps can come off under pressure if not made tight enough. One has to handel live steam with some respect and care but the presure in a little SM32 boiler isn't that high. A pair of suitable driving gloves can be a good idea anyway if like me you drive manual not RC.
  10. Brilliant, apart from the fantastic models the tramway it's self photographs really well in the landscape. Really nice work.
  11. Great stuff. Love the detail and finish on locos and stock.
  12. I have two Hornby class 31s that I've bought second hand. Not sure how old they are but they were not new. Neither shows signs of chassis rot as yet and I hope it stays that way, they're a rather nice model and I like 31s particularly. Guess it may be luck of the draw which models get this or not?
  13. Really enjoyed some of the pictures in this thread. I have six of these on preorder to go with my Bachmann TTAs. I'm local to the Grimsby area and worked for a while on P way. Lindsey oil refinery and Immingham docks were regular gigs for me. I can even remember some of the insults writen with a finger in the dirt on the tanks. These being exchanged by the guys who worked on wagon maintainance as well as the other graffiti. My layout is not a recreation of anywhere specifically but is very much influenced by my local area, set in the BR blue era of my formative years. I very much look forward
  14. Next some Wills bricks and bridge parapet were glued in place and once secure surfaces finished with filler where necessary.
  15. Started today on alterations to the bridge that runs over the mainline and branch near the junction. To begin with I carefully cut away the grass banks either side leaving the road intact.
