Wow, I have been away for a few days only to find my viaduct on the front page :-)
Now I will try to catch up on the thread.
Yes it is a FW190, I pick a few kits up from Charity shops cheaply, also Lidl's and Aldi have some in on offer occaisionally, just keeps the old brain going.
The viaduct was going to go over the door but I decided against a lift out or lift up as too much trouble, and a duck under is a definite no no.
I had thought that the viaduct could become a small diorama for photographs.
I have found the same as Sol, that hand built turnouts turn out far cheaper than peco and others, but the real advantage is that you can build them to fit your layout rather than built the layout with fixed geometry.
Sprayed all the track that's down so far with grey primer last night, so next step is to start painting the sleepers and rails, then must get some more track on order.

Focke Wulfe 190 for Alan






Progress on the layout yesterday was mixing up a pot full of sleeper / rail brown and sploshing it over the primered track, next job is to mix up a rusty rail colour for the rails and chairs/baseplates

Hi Andy,

I don't know how I missed this thread, but it will be one I have my eye on. The layout is looking good so far and I look foward to the next update. :thumbs

Cheers, Gary.

Hopefully I can start on some scenics soon, ideally need to get the track up the back ramp first, the main terminus can wait though as its basically self contained on the upper board.

I started building points a couple of years ago and I find it rewarding and a little theraputic. The only thing that bugged me was the solenoid point moters tend to be a bit viscious and brake the soldier on the blades. So I went back to old school ie: MERCONTROL wire in tube and sliding switch and it works just fine...

I was so pleased with this one, I built three...



They can get covered over at some point.

Hope the soldier is feeling better now, which begs me to ask, what was the soldier doing on the blades...? :mutley

Cheers, Gary.

I also plan on using wire in the tube of some kind, I already have the switches.

Have sloshed on first coat of my sleeper brown mix.



Saturday I started on my small harbour, Sunday was shopping and then crap weather all day so nothing else done, got to pick the bike up from its MOT later so probably wont get anything done today either.







Made from Card, with my own stone texture sheet, the wooden supports are rocket sticks that I collected from the neighbourhood last bonfire night, painted with my sleeper mix.

Pictures of the rear showing construction method, the whole thing is removable allowing me to work on it on my bench.





Next step for this is to add a tide line, weeds & weathering then start building up the layers of PVA, but first I need to build a boat, any one know of any plans for a 4mm trawler of small vessel?

 I'm saying this very tongue in cheek due to the weather we've all been having...but as its barbeque season  :shock:   in the shops , watch out for the big bags of barbeque skewers...great cheap source of round and sometimes square, foot long lengths of wood...can be used for pilons on the dockside , wood stacks in a wood yard, loads on a wagon and many other uses ...even paint stirers for those small pots... And no need to sneak around on bonfire night pulling the sticks of kiddies rockets. :mutley

Already got two packs of the skewers, the round ones make good telegraph poles...

And the rocket sticks are the ones that fell on my head while out walking the dogs on bonfire night and the week before and after, and at New Year

 :cheers

Still paiting the rails of the track I have down so far, so needed something less tedious to keep me brain from being fried.

Got some grey card and cut out a load of shapes.



Cut some holes in some of them and cut out some smaller ones, then started gluing them togther



And this is as far as I have got at the moment



Its based on a Clyde Puffer as at 66' long its a nice compact 27cm in 4mm scale, its not going to be an exact model, just a representation.

Managed to get some more done, a tide line and some sea vegetation on the harbour walls, and a trial coat of the PVA.





And also splashed some paint onto the hull of my boat



Started cutting out and scribing deck planking



And both together



Now needs, engine house, wheelhouse, mast and other deck fittings.

Cheers Marty

Got the decking glued on yesterday and drilled the hole for test fitting the mast and started on the engine/wheelhouse.

I am off on holiday for 6 nights tomorrow so no more updates until I am back, will try to check in using my phone if I get a reasonable signal.
