In that case, perhaps I shall pinch the palindrome post of 10001to agree with you and say that if Rob had simply announced that he had a new loco, I too would have been none I wiser.

Hell fire !!!!

 

Who would have thought it. 

 

Congratulations, John and thank you. Before tampering with the little chap any further, I will wait for the new cylinders to arrive. 

 

I also have to order works plates from Narrow Planet for this one and the B2 as well. 

 

And here,'s to the next 10,000 posts.....:locomotive:

Cracking job again Rob, your timber distressing and weathering is really excellent, top stuff.

Nah, sorry, don't think that so neat a job would have used such poor timber that it has rotted so quick at the ends.

Had the planks been just nailed over the top of the frame, then maybe it might have deteriorated so much.

 

Sheet timber might have been used, even wriggly tin.

But surely every engine shed deserves to have at least one window boarded up with nice, posh materials?

 

If Rob leaves the nice, posh planking in place long enough, it will probably rot enough for your satisfaction and will then need to be replaced by some corrugated stuff.

Rough sawn planks, corrugated iron or zinc, maybe an old enamel sign or two. Plywood or other sheet material is rather unlikely pre 60's.

To be honest I like it, the effect reminds me of the 4"X 3" colour pictures that I took around Conwy when I was about twelve using an ancient Comet camera my mother had bought to record her school trip to Lake Como back in 1955. Only 24 exposures at a time and no need to photoshop in  that aged look. It took beautiful black and white pictures though!

Hmm, that one has gone a bit too far with the special effects for my taste, Rob - sorry!

 

My apologies. I've deleted the post. 

 

I'm simply posting images as due to a few things going on I am not progressing anything new at present. 

 

I'll leave for now.

It's called 'a bit of fun', I like it, like finding an old forgotten photo in the bottom of a drawer.

If you'd left it there, I'd have indicated that I liked it, but you didn't, so I can't.

 

It's your topic, you can post what you like. So can I.

If a thing's worth doing, Rob, it's worth overdoing. We only really find where the limits are when we exceed them.

 

As an alternative, may I suggest "Digital Sepia". It looks quite effective and lots of cameras nowadays can do it as a filter setting without recourse to the PC. Mine will save a "straight" colour copy at the same time.

Rob, If I could achieve half of the quality of modelling output that you share on this topic I would be very content. Please be assured that all your efforts and photographs are a source of inspiration. Thank you
