  1. Hi everybody, I have spent the weekend building a siding with a small bridge and buffer stop. If you're interested please have a look at my new YouTube video here, thanks Tom
  2. Bit of a dream came true today as my models appeared in Model Rail magazine I've also been adding more to my YouTube Channel which you can find here if you fancy subscribing? https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpqfslEKsAWbntyQuPuS8Ow?view_as=subscriber
  3. Thanks Ray, I looked at the Roxey kit but the chassis is no longer produced for it, and she was altered so much for the film (cab cut down, new chimney) it made more sense to design the loco from scratch (following the plans from the KESR). In the end I had to buy a 3D printer which wasn't cheap, but I enjoyed learning 3D design so I will definitely make use of it in future projects.
  4. I've been quiet for a while because I've been trying out some 3D modelling and 3D printing to create Gladstone, the decrepit old engine from Oh, Mr. Porter! This 1:76 scale model was designed on Tinkercad and printed with the Anycubic Photon resin 3D printer. The chassis is not prototypical so as soon as I'm able to easily source a 2-4-0 basis I will redesign to fit, but I'm happy with the Electortren basis for now. If you'd like to see Gladstone in action I've uploaded a video to YouTube here. Thanks, Tom
  5. Yes this layout is excellent. They brought it along to our Will Hay Day in Cliddesden in 2018. Pete Waterman was there too, so it was a great chance to discuss model railways and real railways!
  6. Thanks Corbs, I built the buildings a few years ago for my first attempt at Buggleskelly but a house move meant I had to start again- thankfully I had not glued them down!
  7. Not much progress in modelling as it's been so hot (my model room is also my office and the PC is kicking out some heat today!) but I thought the evening sun gave some nice shots.
  8. I'm in two minds, I have a windmill but I'm trying to just model the station area so realistically it wouldn't be seen in this area. Adding it makes it feel like a train set - not sure if that makes sense? I also have a Thomas the Tank layout under construction so might save the windmill for that. Not sure...
  9. That's a packet of butter...
  10. It's not arrived yet, that's the problem
  11. Hi everybody, Some of you may know me from Facebook as I run the Will Hay Appreciation Society and have posted in several Facebook modelling groups my progress on Buggleskelly, the fictional Northern Irish railway halt from the 1937 Will Hay film 'Oh, Mr. Porter!'. I thought it was about time I had a dedicated place for the layout online so I can share updates etc, and this seems like a friendly forum so I hope you don't mind. Firstly, a bit about Buggleskelly. In the film 'Oh, Mr. Porter!', William Porter (a wheeltapper who once coupled a coal train to the Scotch Exp
  12. Hi, I used a slightly watered down Polyfilla mixed with a drop of black paint for my roads. They still need to be weathered but the texture works well for an old country lane.
