Its a good base, but the wood sucks it in, seal it with thin layers of gloss (the guide I posted use cheap white but I've used black too), then finish with the grey again.  I am sure you are well practised and I am probably teaching you to suck eggs!

Yes D6775 I have used Steve's methods for painting and certainly on Phil's wood materials [Intentio] I made good progress.  I find Intentio better at taking paint than the Lcut wood. 

I think my problem is down to sealing of the wood so I'll wait and watch always happy to learn.

Probably shouldn't be trying to blend all the brick variants on ply, and various plastic sheets to look like one another.

Putting together a nice laser cut foot bridge for my mate Mark (well he did fit the chip in the 33 for me) the kit was in bits and pieces and went together nicely from L-Cut...l added some O gauge rail underneath for extra support...

Hello George,  it was a good day today.

 

Below is a photo of the lattice bridge that you are producing scaling the lines at Helenburgh. It also shows Mark giving lessons to my grandson Noah on using the NCE Powercab.

 

BTW Noah and his parents gave me permission to publish this.

Great pic Ian.

I have a similar pic of my Step Daughter and 4 of my Great Grand Daughters operating my Seven Mills Sidings on my thread yesterday.

Thanks Andy.

 

Here is another photo of the day.

 

George is driving the "31" hauling my engineers train towards Helensburgh station. Conversation went along the lines of:

 

Mark - "George, the train won't fit in that siding. The local won't be able to get away."

George - "Hum."

Adrian - "Arf, arf."

I hope George is still talking to me after this! :)

 

Ian.

Hello Andy, Well in the end l followed lan (47606 odin) advise (Thanks) where he used white filler for the mortar on the bricks, l sprayed the brick with red primer first, and when nice and dry applied the filler, takes some practice but it works...

I like the rust effect on the door rails! Very effective, George.
