Used toilet paper saturated in thinned paint for the covers.

 

Should we assume that you used toilet paper for the covers rather than you used 'used' toilet paper?

Looks good in the new video, watching it right now, curious to see what you're doing to the town, is it going to be more urban? Seeing as you have the apartment block

 

More urban is the plan.  While the previous effort did the job I never thought it was very interesting or detailed.  Figured I'd have another go and focus more on the buildings.

Stunning work as usual! It's great to see it go from nearly nothing to that level. In the video you mention the Shipley Scrap exhibition layout?

Is the station area next on the agenda?

Cheers.

 

I forget the name of the layout but it certainly inspired me when I saw it.  Fantastic work.

Yes I recognise it, not many attempt this type of layout. The owner has a thread on here actually if you want to see more photos of it?

Cheers.

Brilliant vid Joe Richard loved every minute. Great vision and bravery to extend the scrapyard and move the canal.love the 2 motors under the arches. Can’t wait until you have the next update ready.

cheers

Excellent video Richard,

 

on the new canal bridge there is a wire/railing type fixture on the top of the girders. Was this scratch built or a kit?

 

thanks

I scratch built that from some brass wire and super glued it to the girder.

Just watched the latest video Richard, love the intro :)

 

There's some really great work here, hand painting 4mm scale graffiti is just madness... :D

I’ve spent the last few days going back through the EJ archive on YouTube and it’s fantastic how the level of detail has improved and evolved. Very impressive stuff indeed.

I really, really enjoy your videos and I feel like I'm picking up so many hints and tips from them. I love the two lockdown's at each end of the street with all the little details you've packed into them.

 

The only thing I keep wondering is on the end of the One Way street if there would be the arrow road marking you've added or if it would be a 'Give Way' triangle?

 

That said, you mentioned you'd done some research into them so I expect there's a prototype for that somewhere :)

100% agree with you on that. When doing the scenery on my own layout -Glencoe- I’ve tried replicating the techniques that Richard (and Luke Towan) use and I feel it’s helped make my modelling that little bit better. Every day a school day , as they say.

Seems to be a lot of variation with the road markings.  I've looked in various places and found triangles, arrows or nothing at all.  I'm not sure which is right but its handy being able to peel the markings away should I change my mind in future.  Will keep looking, cheers.

Loved the latest video.  Another excellent tutorial and encouragement.  The period you model is my favourite a great mix if traction and liveries even though my main interest is mid 80s Scottish traction, I do like a bit of Ckas 50 action and NSE livery..  I prefer the original NSE livery over revised.

 

I have the same Police river SD1, but thought the lights needed beefing up a bit.  Intend the change the stripe and crest to something more Scottish later on.

I loved the car chase at the beginning. And the boxes. Those were essential in 70s shows like the Sweeney and The Professionals hehe

 

I could almost see Bodie and Doyle in the Capri with the Police not actually chasing them but after the same villains. Maybe they commandeered the officers under their CI5 powers...

Reminds me of Everard Junction type rolling stock.  

 

 

2 X Hst Power Cars in swallow livery with full yellow ends, I always thought it was just the buffer fitted dvt ones that were painted like that, you learn something new every day!
