      Great looking layout. So few photos about of the goods yard i suppose you had to use modellers licence as i did. Mines 00 gauge and a bit short and cramped due to lack of space because of a incline south out of the station. I have a few other DCR stations in my loft, Durweston, Shillingstone, working on Henstridge at the moment and future plans for Blandford.

      Overview of Stur.

  2. Have you thought about using Railtech decals?
  3. Great work. What did you use for the chimney?
  4. Made a start on a pair of LNWR special cattle vans
  5. Some updated pics of my Sturminster Newton layout Station yards Cattle pens Rear of station Butts Pond Total railway yards and dairy Local freight Layout frontage - 4m
  6. Can suggest an appropriate shade of grey to paint some S&DJR 5 plank wagons TIA
  7. Does anyone know the status of 2mm Locomotives at present. I made a purchase of eBay from Damien for a 2mm MR 0-4-4T. This was back in March, so the 60 day period has expired. My last contact was at the end of May. I don't want to muck-raking, but I'm presently out of pocket $200+ for a loco and I can't the person responsible to respond to any emails, directly from the 2mm loco website and eBay. Its is further compounded by the fact that I live down under. Any assistance or news would be helpful cheers Ben of Oz
  8. Bachman, through their collectors club are releasing a limited edition N gauge 4F, in S&DJR Prussian livery. How genuine is this?
  9. I've started a new blog www.nebsdownundermodeling.blogspot.com.au
  10. The past 12 months has seen new additions , especially in post Christmas period. Fairburn Jinty A4 A pair of duchesses S&DJR Jinty 4F
  11. The last couple of months has seen me trying to finish of some the many UFO's. On the list were some LMS 6 wheeled CCT's. These are brass etches made by Etched Pixels, which glue on to a 3D print body, which in turn fits onto a NGS 6 wheels chassis from the stove R. These were quite simple to build. I opted to solder the sides together and then glue the body. The body's come with or without rainstrip. While the printed strip is a bit thick, added brass wire and shaping was a tad difficult Roof and end painting occurred today, now they just need decals. That is another story, for another time.
  12. I'd start by apologising, it has been quite sometime since I add to/ updated this blog. Over the spanning time the modelling mojo has ebbed and flowed. I've been encouraged by Sithlord to get my act together and post some updates. Work on the Patriot has continued, ever so slowly. Applying the lining decals has been an experience Just as I was about to order some nameplates, the NGS shop closed, so now just awaiting the modelmaster section to be updated to order some plates. The lining in the tender needs some attention. Using microset/sol and mr softner have had average results. Even consulting Phil Badger (1/3 of Ixion), still couldn't improve them.
  13. Has anyone replaced there traction tyres with "Bullfrog snot"? If yes, has it improved the loco at all?
  14. They are readily available via Shapeways, designed by fellow RMWeb member Atso http://shpws.me/pbNB
  15. Last year I received an email from ATSO CAD about a new 3D printed loco body for an Fowler Patriot, designed to fit onto a Farish Jubilee chassis. For a bit more authenticity I decided to power it with a Union Mills Fowler tender, a spare one I just had lying around. The first task was to clean-up the body, to start with I gave a good session in the ultra-sonic cleaner to clear of any residue left-over form printing. Following that I set to the body in an attempt to reduce the raised stippling, a feature of 3D printing. I tried several methods, including sanding sticks, paper, cloth etc. As much as I could, I was trying not to loose too much of the detail, so a compromise was made. I then removed the buffers, and replaced with brass ones. I also took the back of the cab wall with the Dremel, so it would sit flat and firmly on the Jub chassis. Then it was another sonic wash. Once dry, it was time for the under coat. With some paint, this clearly showed-up where the stippling was, and was still quite bad. I gave it another under coat, in the hope that maybe this might fill-up some of the raised lines. While this helped, it was wasn't the best. So next it was time for Mr Surfacer. This a paint filler, in this case I use the 1000 grit. I applied in several areas and once dry I used a cotton bud, dipped in metho, to re-distribute into the areas required. This appeared to improve it. Happy with this, I then completed a 3rd and 4th undercoat
  16. Nice layout, and great choice of station, I've been doing Stur, in N, on and off since 08. All the way from down under. I feel your pain with trying to find accurate photos of the cattle yards and behind the yard in general. I've scoured the trust and many other sources but to no avail. Best I've managed was some aerial phots take in 47. Check my layout links to get an idea.
  17. Its been over a year since I last made an entry, where has the time gone? With a couple of days off work due to the big horse race, I decided to try and finish some outstanding UFO's. This work included adding to decals to some Spirit Design VR "Aircon" passanger kits of the AE/BE/BG. I painted these last christmas, so it was high time they were finished prior to the big move at the end of the year. I have six in total, so only 2 to go. Next was to make a start on new Ultima LMS 6 wheeled CCT's. These are quite simple, some brass etches laid over a shell, in this case one produced by 3d printing (Shapeways). This then fits over the top of the NGS 6 wheeled chassis from the Stove R. I managed to get some undercoat down, so hopefully some crimson on tomorrow. But will need to tidy up the chassis.
  18. New Farish Duchess, great news!

  19. Great work Atso. When do they go on sale? I'll take 6 of those pidegon vans
  20. I remember when I last visited the UK, in 2007, a certain shop retailer mentioned in passing that these were on the cards. I thought nothing of it at the time, but 4 years on and here it is. Now if only they do lattice posts
