........I had a quick shudder when I read the word 'gloop' again. I'm still smarting from the tongue-lashing I got 18 months ago when I tried your mixture and inadvertently dipped the cuff of my cardigan in it.....before sitting on the sofa with my forearm on the   embroidered slip cover...

Hello Wayne,

Yes mate, beveled to roughly 45 deg with a block of wood wrapped in sand paper. I usually back the edge of the plasticard up with a small steel ruler to try and stop the uneven finish created at the ends.


Being N scale I get a bit of leeway as the glue will melt most minor imperfections, in fact, enough glue will, as you know, melt major ones too :shock:


Some are better than others and I really should take more care but the parts are so small they are hard to see, let alone handle!

Yup! Your name was still mud after the grand expanded polystyrene/dremel fiasco, so I thought you might as well get hung for a sheep as a lamb..................

Don't you mean  "Yup! Your name was still GLOOP.... " ??

I have to take  my literal hat off to N scalers & the amount of details that scratch builders put into their models :pathead

A very satisfactory conclusion to that little project Marty and it should blend in nicely once the 'glooping' and grassing is done.

Great to see the updates Marty.

Are you coming over this year? - There has been quite a bit of progress refurbishing the trackbed between Henllan and Pentrecwrt.

You mentioned 'Winter in New England' - is Mike posting these days?

All the best,
Shaun.

Good job on the bridge Marty.I agree with Max,the painted balsa wood looks more like stone than the real thing!
Neat work on the corners too.Whenever I try anything like that it winds up looking like something the dog spat out!

Cheers.John.B.:thumbs

Hi Marty
That was some read! I love the Altycefan bridge a few pages back and all in N scale too, great stuff.
I thought about doing NE myself with Pencader as my junction and BLT layout but I really wanted a double track mainline which is why I didn't proceed with in the end. I like that part of the country and even considered Lampeter and Aberayron and once holidayed in the area to see what it was like.
This is one for me to follow now and if I didn't have so many OO kits N would have been a real possibility just for the scenic potential.
Jim

Thanks Jim, it's a slow old process but Progress is steady.

I would have loved to have used Pencader as one end of the layout but just don't have the room at the moment.

There are wild ideas in my head about extending the line to Cardigan as they had planned to do in the beginning.... But more on that later.

Must be time for an update, I'll see what I can do.

This is the area that I am concentrating on at the moment. It's the first section seen from the door to the layout room and I've decided to finish it completely as soon as time permits.



Some of the "snow" has been replaced with the base landform as detailed in earlier posts and no more can be done until the Woollen mill buildings are complete and the weir area developed.

All of the bridges in this section are complete so now it's scratchbuilding the unique buildings time.

cheers

Marty

Thanks Alan, I had a lot of fun making it and am really pleased with how it came out.  It's one of the defining features of the branch, so much so that when we visited Wales in 2010 I had to walk over it and under it on the old rail bed.

The build details start on page 30 in this thread.

cheers

Marty
