An OO gauge model railway
This looks very believable...I love the colour scheme and the way you have built the lamp room onto the structure. The surface of the platform is very well done too - nice job, Chas!
Brilliant! It's all so well executed I think - the colours, the texture. And you're right about that lonely look, a lot of halts seemed to have that. Are you going to build the landscape around it to suit?
Very nice. Just needs a solitary figure, well wrapped up against the cold wind, waiting for a train which may or may not turn up.
Thanks very much, Iain!
Thanks very much, Mikkel. Yes I'm going to have a shot at landscaping but haven't yet decided how to do it without cluttering the scene. I know I'm now going to have a period of being paralysed with indecision!
Thanks Paul. Yes, a solitary figure! Any thoughts on the most realistic figures available on the market?
That is very nice Chas and would sit very nicely in a Morfa Mawddach inspired landscape.
Thanks Geoff. Yes it would, wouldn't it? It's an absolutely lovely area.
Amazing! I really like the roofing felt. How did you achieve that effect?
Thanks very much, Greg. The felt effect is just strips of paper stuck on to the styrene sheet, coated with PVA and sprinkled with talc. The paper and talc is just a little too thick which has made the roof edges a bit too rounded. I wondered, next time, whether chinchilla sand might be better than talc - http://philsworkbench.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/chinchilla-sand.html. I hadn't heard of it before I read that blog post but perhaps the texture would then be too much. Best wishes. Chas
