Thanks Martin, see....i'm not just a pretty face :lol:

 

I've checked it out and will leave a reply when i'm accepted as a member.

 

Knowing that your layout is going to be featured makes you look at it in a different way, i'm finding lots of things to do to make it more acceptable, i've spent most of today just working on the area in front of the tunnel. Adding foliage, trees and generally making it look better :roll: I've rummaged through old boxes of stuff that I haven't looked at for ten years, found some etched point levers, three link screw couplings, signal kits (made one which has gone next the the signal box) ground signals, etc. etc. and that's the simple part of the layout!

Phil

I've just been catching up with developments here Phil and I have to say, WOW !!!

Great news about the publicity but it's good to know "we saw it first" on here. :thumbs:thumbs:thumbs

The transformation of the factory from pristine plastic to finished article is something to behold.  A brilliant job.  Each little scene has so much to offer.  Nothing we didn't know was there but things we'd have missed out if we were doing it ourselves - regardless of the quality of our finished work compared with yours.

I'm sure I've said before that it's the attention to detail that moves a model railway into being a miniature version of the real thing.  Pen y Bryn is a layout that has, without any doubt, successfully made that move.

Moving on to detailing this area, the trees especially needed work compared to previous pictures posted.

Peter,

It started out as a hydrangea flower minus the petals, Polyfilla was added to the trunk which was then painted. Woodland Scenics was stretched over the branches and then WS's foliage. Hair spray was used as adhesive. As it was, the tree was not big enough and not quite the right shape so copper wire was pushed into the centre to create an over hang and all of the above was added again.

Phil

Great looking layout Phil, the way you've blended the scenery in is superb, good job on the large tree too, nice touch with the tin shed as well. I strive to reach that level of modeling. Keep up the excellent work Phil.

Wow Phil, what a journey. :shock::shock:

No wonder it looks so good - a real "specimen" tree.  Hard work but very well worth all the effort. :thumbs:thumbs:thumbs

Wow Phil !!  I knew you were an engraver but didn't realise you did shotguns.  Incredible stuff.

Did those all start as "plain" guns or did the manufacturer give you something to work on ?

I also notice they're cheap guns !!!  :lol::lol::lol::lol:;-)

Hi Peter, these cheap guns :lol: come to me in the white, ie polished steel, I do all the design etc. Sometimes I have to work with the customer but more normal is for them to suggest the scroll they like and also the birds etc. Most of my guns are for collectors and are not fired, some go straight into safes/lockups. They take various times to engrave, from a couple of months to around a year.

 

Phil

It's many years since I did any shooting Phil and mine - A French Darne, 12 bore "mouse-head" action handed down by my Father, was ready engraved, presumably by Darne themselves.  As a result, I'm well out of date with the "Shooting Times" but are these commissions via Hollands (or Purdy), or do they come direct by word-of-mouth ?  I'd guess it's a very specialised market and I wonder how they found a guy in Wales via the London gunsmiths .......:roll::roll:
