Lets see your teak coaches.

Here is an attempt to improve the railroad teak composite brake. It is by no means finished, but it gives you an ideapost-34533-0-85783400-1528994884_thumb.jpgpost-34533-0-92022800-1528994913_thumb.jpg

Progress so far with improving a Hornby Margate Teak (Mike Trice technique; for use with my older tender drive locos which still get a lot of use) and a Chivers Pigeon Brake.

Both require transfers from HMRS in the coming weeks.

Can I throw in a few Irish coaches to this thread, partly as a 'thank you' to Mike Trice for his technique and also perhaps as an encouragement to others to have a go? It's actually easier than painting a normal livery!

 

The Great Northern Railway (Ireland) painted their coaches in a varnished wood livery. The company, which had been taken over by the Governments of the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland in the early 1950s ceased to exist in 1958 and was divided between the two jurisdictions. However, the livery lived on in Northern Ireland until the early 1960s; there are many colour photos of such coaches in Ulster Transport Authority service.

 

These coaches are a mix of scratchbuilt and Worsley Works parts.

 

Cheers and thanks again to Mike Trice,

This is my first go at scratch building and painting a 7mm coach. It is based on a very old drawing of a GCR suburban. I have found a drawing for a brake for my next attempt.

Still aways to go to finish it but a very enjoyable exersize.

Sorry to dig up a very old thread, but can you remember (or suggest) the appropriate paint to use to paint out Hornby’s darker red lines between panels?

This is my Diagram 118 Brake Composite. Built for the Scottish Southern Area, but requisitioned for the Rosehearty branch. It was built as an adaptation when the Ian Kirk kit that I planned to build had the wrong set of parts.
