Crackington Quay inspired this - a narrow gauge excercise in O16 and just to see much one can get on a Wicks flush door  - and you would be suprised.

There's loads more which I will put up later - I forgot, most of the pictures were taken by wifey and are therefore in her files and not mine, little wonder I couldn't find them !

However, to give you some idea as to just what is possible on a 6ft 6 by 2ft 9 flush door I managed to get in about 30 mixed buildings - and a castle! and all in o gauge so never say you haven't got room !

Cheers.
Allan.

Thank you.

Yes, it is recent and I'm now 6/8 weeks in and still working on it.

Cheers.

All I can say Allan is wow, I just wish I had that much space.
What did you use for the stonework?

Well Roy. 6ft 6 is hardly a barn and I would have thought it wouldn't be to difficult finding room like that somewhere around the house - try the wife's shoe cupboard !

The stone work is Wills and I'll be showing the method used to texture it up in a later post.

Cheers.
Allan

No chance of that much space in our little bungalow, but I do have 36" x 18" space in a cupboard I can use, perhaps two light weight boards 30" x 15", we will see, life keeps getting in the way.
Look forward to the info on the stone work.
Regards,Roy.

Colouring using Colro wood dye, matt/satin black and talc for the stone joints.











A little mixed up I'm affraid but I'm sure you'll get the idea.

Cheers.
Allan.

Action Station !

The hotel, inspired by a David Meaden photograph of Chester Buildings, was rejected after it was just to overpowering (the castle isn't then?!)  for such a small layout so had to be rebuilt and reduced in size.

Excellent creations Allan. You have not lost your touch.

Also a smart move useing "0" scale for the build combined with "0" gauge NG loco,s and rolling stock and 16.5 track.
You won't have to work with a jeweller's eyeglass all the time.
I bet your good lady is delighted to see you back in your element.

regards and thanks for the building tips.

Derek.

Thanks Derek.

It was a struggle at first though but my good wife kept pushing me and whatever materials I wanted and whatever the cost, she was on to my old suppliers straight away and ordering it - 1500 quid so far !!

Anyway, a further few shots mainly showing where that castle will be standing.

Cheers.
Allan.

I must say Allan that combination of Talc,Wood dye and paint proved an excellent combination on the castle stone work.
I have plans to build a load of stone retaining walls on my long developing railway effort if I ever get the track finished? I know now what to use to get a great stone effect.
Also may I say thanks to your wife for helping to get you motivated again.
regards,

Derek.

Hi Allan,

Brilliant models once again.

I'm intrigued by the application of colour to the castles stoework. I can see that the black is applied as an aerosol, but curious about the application of the wood dye. Are both the black and dye used sparingly or flooded ? Also, is the application of talc done when the paint/dye is still wet to touch ?

Can you please let me in on a few of your trade secrets ?

Cheers, Gary.

Hi Gary.

I did answer your post detailing what it was that you wanted to know then the bxxxxy internet had the courtesy of launching it into cyber space and never to be seen again so I'll try again later when I've calmed down a bit !

Cheers.
Allan.
