Certainly looks very realistic there Jim. The time and care taken in the design and preparation of each little piece of the jigsaw is paying dividends in the appearance of the "finished" work.

Jim, I can only agree with Rick's comments - especially that last photo, neat indeed.

Cracking work Jim

Which type of ballast have you used, and that signal box looks interesting in the back ground, have you any photo's of the work carried out on that so far.

Hi Alan

I have used Carrs ash ballast secured with Klear. The track needs weathering yet.

The signal box is basically a big perspex box with the detail stuck to it. I hope the following help.



I originally did the cladding from resin but once it was finished I decised it wasn't good enough so I started replacing it with L section Evergreen strip (£70 worth - so far!)



The new cladding is on the small structure at the top - the old resin at the bottom. The air conditioners are from S - Kits.

I drew up basic interiors for the small building.



The lighter room has lights fitted to it



The overall complex while still under construction



HTH

Jim

That really is some model you are building, I didn't think it was a superquick kit :roll:, It's the detail that you put into the models that you build, we all see it, but don't think about adding it to ours, but after seeing yours close up, it really makes a difference, do you have plans of the main buildings, or do you work from photos, and how many hours work has gone into just this one building.

Inspirational work

the first type can be used on layouts but are intended as wagon loads. They consist of 6 'boxes' and 6 lids.


the second type is for layout use and is 2 runs of 10 sections as a single piece fold up etch. These can be curved (gently).

Jim

They look great Jim - you say you have drawn up your own etch.  Was this just for your layout or do you have any spare to either sell or do swapsies!

Hi Alan

As I tend to dip in and out of things I couldn't say how long it takes. I draw everything out first from my observations and measurements.

Cheers

Jim

Jim there is no problem whatsoever with members offering products on the forum to other members John and Chris both have retail businesses and have always forwarded information on products they feel may be worthwhile they sell or if somebody specifically asks about a product so if you want to feel free to let members know if there are things that you do that could be usefull to them.

This is a small community and we all know each other anyway i know on other larger forums there have been problems which are usually caused by somebody deliberatly suddenly  joining purely to tout their wares

So feel free to to offer products to other members if you wish

cheers Brian

Hi All

As I mentioned yesterday I made a start on the wall that is on platform 2/3. The following picture shows todays progress. Nearly there now!



The non-public facing side is the most interesting due to the very large drain pipes. As this will only be seen by the operators (and even then if they can see under the bridge) I didn't go too mad. If it was public facing I'd have done brackets for the pipes but all in all, I have a good time doing this bit.

Cheers

Jim

PS - the troughing comes in 2 types - open boxes x24 or runs 4 x runs of ten. Both packs are a fiver, please PM me if you want some. If you need a lot let me know and I can work something out.

This forum does have a section called Sales, Swaps & Wants

so as far as I am concerned, members can use that without getting banned - that right Bob?

I have been looking at this photo again and I love the cable protector - how did you do that Jim please?  I have tried various bits of plastic etc and they always look like bits if plastic no matter what I do to them!

Hi Chris

Its just round microstrip sprayed orange. It will look better when the track is weathered.

Cheers

Jim

==============================

You see this is the big difference between a modeller like Jim and most of us, but where we can all learn, most of us would have found a piece of orange wire and used that, knowing that it's not right or to scale, but Jim goes the extra mile and sprays a strip of plastic the correct size and then correct colour, it's like the etched rail joiners, I only ever see that on P4 layouts, why ? is it because we all feel it's above us, or that we don't have the skill to model to such high standards, or is it time?

Really nice Jim.
