Well done, John. You're one of the very few people to hang the doors the right way up !

Great job. Great workmanship.

I got some things from Severn Models today:  http://severnmodels.com/epages/eshop1179816.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/eshop1179816/Categories/Model_Railway_Kits/O_Gauge__7mm_to_1_foot

O6, workshop equipment.  This will go into the Engine Shed.



O3, shed accessories



O16, chairs.  I think these will look good in the signal box.



O15, signal box interior.  Lots of neat stuff.  I won't need the crossing gate wheel.



O14, stove.  Not sure yet where I'll put this.



John

Hi John,

Nice looking gear. The clock is a nice touch.

From the empty space on the etches that's a lot of (expensive) brass that went down the drain.

Nigel

I do like etched brass.  I always keep old frets as the brass on them can be useful for other things.

Me too, sometimes I make more from the frets than I do from kit parts...

Hi Jon, Rob,

You two must be miracle workers, air into brass. Those etches were clearly designed when brass was cheap. The upfront cost of an etch is high, once the master masks are made it's all gravy.

Nigel

My latest batch of ModelU figures:



The guard is in anticipation of the Dapol 20T BR brake due in the shops any time.

There are two loco crews with RH drivers for my friends 8750 Pannier and in anticipation of a second loco, probably 14XX/48XX.

Signalman who will reside in my signalbox.

John

They look really good, John. Any chance of some close ups ?

Oh goodness no Allan.  :It's a no no That would be cruel.  My figure painting skills are at best impressionistic.  I can't do faces to save my life.  :brickwall I did use an enamel wash after finishing followed by a spray of matte.  This highlights the creases in the clothing and helps to bring out facial features.

I mostly use acrylic but the blue is Humbrol enamel.  When using the wash, you need to be careful because if you mass about too much it will remove the enamel.  It won't touch acrylic of course.

I also tried to use as many different colours as possible with the crews, even giving one of them some stylish sky blue overalls.

I'm OK with these because they look good from normal viewing distances.

John

Well how about a close up before you paint them, John ?

Hi John,

They look great. For those in the UK they will do personal scans of and you can drive your own trains in 1:76 or 1:43.5. There is an outfit here in NY that does the scan and 3D print.

Thanks Nigel, I think you get yourself 3D scanned and printed in many places.  There was a segment on Spaces Innerspace where two hosts had themselves scanned and printed - in colour as I recall.

Does this suit Allan?:



The things I do for mates :roll:

John

For a change of pace, I decided to have a go at the Scalescenes Water Tower:

https://scalescenes.com/product/r025a-water-tower/



I made the windows from 0.060"x0.060" Evergreen strip.



Door is an offcut of Evergreen 0.040" sheet.  I scribed it for the planks and then sanded to get a representation of grain.  Door knob is the ubiquitous pin.

John
