  1. Being an Ivybridge resident, I can confirm that is a very good resprentation of the viaduct. My own observation: it needs a lot more trees as this runs though Long Timber Woods! But the structure isn't bad at all. Regards, Nick.
  2. Nice job Alex. Regards, Nick
  3. I think it was taken in 1962, not long before closure. I've seen that photo before and October/November 1962 rings a bell. Lovely photos of Tavistock.
  4. Thank you @gwrrob I haven't seen that slideshow before. The Standard at Tavistock south must have been taken between 1963-1964 post closure. Very good photographs. I have a copy of the signalman at Horrabridge, a lovely picture. Cheers, Nick.
  5. Brilliant modelling Martin. I'm stunned by it. I have started to muck around with Ammo by Mig paints, which are rather nice to work with. I think military modelling techniques transfer over and compliment railway modelling very nicely. Kind regards, Nick.
  6. Hi Duncan, I would be bery interested in any footage footage or photographs of the Launceston branch, but in particular Horrabridge. Everything is useful! The front of the station and the rear (forecourt side) are difficult to come by, so any assistance would be most helpful. best wishes, Nick
  7. Thank you Titain, your kind words mean a lot! Straight up, I haven't done anything like this before. Until yesterday, my time on using an airbrush could be measured in minutes! Around 210! I'm really pleased with the results so far. Kind regards, Nick.
  8. Thank you Chris. I will photograph the pair I'm working on tomorrow. Kind regards, Nick.
  9. Hello! I thought I would share my efforts so far. I haven't weathered anything before, so this was a real learning curve. I had a chat with an old school friend, a miltary modeller himself, who suggested using the Ammo by Mig range of paints and weathering products. I have to say, until Sunday, I hadn't come across them before. I use Vallejo paints for figure painting, and these are quite similar. I'm happy to produce a step-by-step guide if anyone is interested, but here are my results so far: I hope they don't like the side down! I haven't finished the process yet, but I'm very pleased with what I have achieved so far. Best wishes, Nick.

    • FOR SALE
    • AS NEW - as purchased (unused)

    Listed for sale is, effectively, a brand new Hornby LSWR M7 locomotive. I bought the locomotive about 18 months ago, it has been tested (and runs very smoothly in both directions). Subquently, it is no longer required, due to a change in modelling interests! I'm offering the locomotive for sale at £85, but am open to sensible offers - currently this model sells for £110 upwards on eBay. Postage and packing is included in the price: the model will send via Royal Mail and will require signing for. Payment can be made through PayPal or Bank Tranfer. Please send a PM if you are interested. Many thanks for looking. Best wishes, Nick.


  11. Yeah he was there Keith. A lot of second hand 4mm wagons for sale, some Blacksmiths etches and odd Cooper Craft wagon bodies. Regards, Nick
  12. Right last bit of work for the day. One rather rusty lamp hut.
  13. It looks suitably worn down Alex! Good job. Regards, Nick
  14. Hi Rich, Yes! I do remember that. Thanks for the reminder. Cheers, Nick
