That 150 would look really nice on your layout Andy. You could probably do with a Voyager as well but I beleive they are as rare as hens teeth.

If anything, probably a 153 for the Branch Paul.:rolleyes:

This morning I've made a start on the embankment in Trewenn Harbour, the next stage will be masking Tape and PVA, then I can look at how to represent the water, I do have some ideas so I'm looking forward to that.

Honestly, how do you do it? I go away for just 4 days, and come back to FIVE pages, and 3 videos! Going to need another break when I've caught up, assuming I do, because there's more coming in all the time.

 

Not really complaining  Andy, it's all interesting and informative, as well as pleasurable. Keep up the good work, Trevor

Well we move on, and so now to Video No 16,

 

Very helpful tip on wiring the programming track.  Was wondering how to do it and the 3 way is a good idea. ( Didn't know about the flash over potential problem).  Only just found this forum so I have enjoyed your videos!

Hi Edward, Thanks and welcome to the mad house that is Bute Road. :P

 

Re the flash over, I don't know if it would happen or not, so my thinking is more precautionary than any other reason.

Next Video, No 17 will be up in the morning.

Andy, for the water there is this video that is quite good. I haven't found a UK equivalent 70 Gloss varnish yet though. 

Simon

Cheers Simon, That is an excellent Video, well presented and very simplistic.

 

Cheers.:good:

Hi Simon,

Nice link there - I have watched that video a few times over the last few months, seeking inspiration for the water on my American N gauge layout and intend to try and follow his practice when I get to that stay ... I'll let the bodgit master go first and learn from his mistakes education video productions. :dancer:

Cheers Rich, I need smooth reflections like I did for the Pond on New Mills, so may use Perspex again like this.

I think Perspex has a tendency to look like err, well, perspex. Far too flat and uniform. 
 

I remember my youf sitting fishing and even on a calm flat day water was always moving somewhere.

We used that technique for the water on the Winchester clubs Redbridge layout. Top coats were yacht varnish.

 

 

 

Cheers

Dave

Thanks Dave, yes I remember seeing that I think. I'll check out the Club for pics, I was thinking of joining, but it would be a bit of a trek on Club nights, especially in the winter Months.

Thanks for your input.

Not done much water. But when I have I used coloured Yacht varnish to give a stagnant industrialised water effect.

Resin can give good results.
