  1. The method i use is first coat, grey primer, then spray from a distance so the droplets are big, white, red and yellow. give it a try on scrap.
  2. Personally I would do what is right, but as you say rule 1 applies. There are plenty of brick sheets available, or you can be sad like me and scribe your own...
  3. Just recently upgraded to one from DCC Supplies although I think I may have had the last one in stock.
  4. Cartridge paper also has a texture so you could also use that.
  5. You can also do this using a thick PVA glue
  6. The problem with some of the ladies eye shadow stuff is the glitter in them. Cheap artists pastel sets are a better bet, grind them down with a modelling knife edge.
  7. I use a wash of watercolour after the tiles slates are all laid.
  8. Don't have it protude, so you just reach underneath
  9. If you have built the track exactly as that plan then it says in the text that you can either run it as two circuits with two controllers or one continuous run by making sure that point A,B,C & D are set correctly as per the instructions.
  10. If you just want undulating terrain and not steep hills just cut some contours out of corrugated card and stick to your flat ply, then cover those with masking tape to smooth out the edges, then cover with a layer of plaster/poly filler before adding you coulour and grass.
  11. Cut a slot in the baseboard under the sector plate and fix an operating rod to the bottom of the plate that will let you then operate it from the front.
  12. You can take some of the tack out of domestic masking tape by applying it to glass or tile then cut it into strips and use it.
  13. I have already looked at Crewlisle on google and yes you do have a lot of railway in that space. And I actually live in Market Harborough, the station is nothing to what it used to be when it was also a junction for Rugby, Northampton and Peterborough via the Welland Valley. And yes I would be very pleased to receive anything you can send me via PM on your build. Thanks.
  14. Thats got an awful lot of track in what a lot of people on here will say is a small space. ( I only have an 8 x 8 space which internally comes out at 7' 10"), doesn't look like much space for scenery, if that's what you want, and you could probably build similar for a lot less money.
