Brick Bridge

Recommended Posts

John Greenwood has just completed a GWR. 42xx 2-8-0T which is quite happy on his 18" radius curves although as all 2mm modellers know, the normal laws of physics don't apply to John!

 

I use a minimum of 24" and my 7F 2-8-0s seem happy enough on that. Nigel Hunt's ex LNWR 0-8-2T trundled all round Tucking Mill - 3'6" on Brick Bridge shouldn't pose any problems at all.

John,

Stop taking photos and get on and finish it!!  :jester:

 

She does look very nice though so I think you could be excused.

I haven't looked in for quite a while things have certainly come on. Very impressive.

Hi does anyone know where I can get the instructions foe this brake van

Many thanks

John

 

John,

 

There is a very useful photo guide (written by Richard Brummitt) in the files area of the 2mm Yahoo Group. It's in the folder called 'Wagon Instruction Sheets'.

 

If you can't find it, PM me and I'll email you a copy.

I've managed to either bend or twist nearly every etch on this kit and spent ages trying to straighten them out

Regards

A little bit more progress this is the first time that I've attempted doing the grass it just needs a few bushes and weeds and possibly a tree

Is that static grass, or a grass mat? Looks good.

A couple of trees this board is really a test piece for ideas and may or may not be used in the final layout .The next board will be the viaduct board and the reason for the name Brick Bridge is that the viaduct will (hopefully) be a brick structure and at the moment I'm not sure if that will be brick papers or if it's possible laser cut
