Good grasses, Nick. I agree you'd find a place for all of them. Nice colours you have, too.
And any project that bypasses soldering is a winner with me!

OK here's some more photos as promised

This was the Hanging basket liner sample as originally laid to the sample tester and only slightly trimmed to remove the excessively long strands.




Now it's been given the short back and sides treatment with a pair of scissors. This is as short as I can seem to get it with scissors and although it's made quite a difference the photos still make it look quite long. I've just had the thought that a shaver trimmer attachment might cut it down even further which looks like being my next experiment :roll:






To give a better idea of height heres a side on view, the ply is 6mm thick




The only issue I have with HB liner is that it leaves long strands stuck down in the glue which show up and have to be somehow cut out, which I imagine is going to be quite a tedious job over a large area.

Hi Nick.  I'm going to put up a warning about using carpet underfelt in the Shunters Return.  It can be dangerous.  Cheers  Max

Blimey, didn't know that. I imagine it's something to do with the fibres as can't see it blowing your head off with a kalashnikov. So what is the problem with it then?

PS - Can someone tell me how to get the posters name before the quote please

From my point of view, unless you are going for a bowling, putting green or manicured lawn, mixing and matching is the way to go, much more natural.

To get a "ferral" patch of waste ground, mix it up lots, a less overgrown area, less mix and match.

Sisal string, untwisted and used plain for dry long grass and dyed for green grass clumps make a good effect too.

Looking good, keep it up.

If you use the quote button it should put the posters name above the quote automatically... just be careful not to delete it while deleting the text in the quote that you don't want.

I can't remember how to do a link to another post, Nick.  Check out the thread in Recent.  Sorry mate.

Thanks Marty, I was using the quote tags and copying and pasting, that's much easier and neater.

Max - Thanks, an interesting read and thanks for making us aware. I work in the building maintenance sector which is quite rightly paranoid about asbestos, mdf dust etc, etc but I've not heard any mention of this before. It is almost impossible to find carpet underfelt in the UK these days and my small stock was put aside years ago.

:hmmIn this case where it's not proven, my own thoughts are it is up to the individual to assess the risk from the information available. As the amount I'm likely to use is miniscule (and I know it only takes a small amount to do the damage) I'll probably take that risk but be more inclined to use a mask when working with it, until it is firmly fixed down and loose fibres hoovered up.

Thanks for making us aware and I suggest that everyone reads Max's post and makes their own decision.

You're welcome, Nick.  I don't know if Hardie's products reached the UK.  They definitely went to the US.

Here's the first structure built for Much Murkle. The weighbridge hut is based on some drawings in an old Ericplans book and is built mainly out of card with scalescenes brick paper. The roof is Slaters slates. The weighbridge deck is from a wills kit .

The windows are made of microstrip but even though I tried very hard, I got glue all over the glazing. For future reference does anyone know a good way of avoiding this. 

Looking at the ridge tiles shows how cruel the camera can be.:sad: 

 




All in all I'm pretty pleased with it.

Very neat Nick. At first I was going to say - was not keen on the rounded corners but then I remembered as a youngster, seeing houses that had the corners all rounded.

Yes I found that the camera can be cruel.

I always use sliced white sticky freezer labels for window bars Nick. I then glue the ends of the bars out of sight.

Sol - I would like to say the rounded corners are deliberate but they're a result of not scoring the card deep enough before folding. It doesn't look too bad but it wouldn't look right on every building.

It is a test piece and when I have time I'm going to build the same structure in plasticard to decide which I will use in future. The atrraction with card for me is that it avoid the need to get the paintbrush out :lol:

Whichever medium I decide to use I want to scratchbuild all of the buildings. I've nothing against kit built structures but I took a concious decision that Much Murkle would have structures that were distinct which excludes most kits. I'm quite willing though to use some of the parts from kits ;-)

I do this all the time.
Many model shops / exhibitions have a corner of secondhand 'messed up' or incomplete kit buildings - a ready source of inspiration, too.

I like the rounded corners.
Reminds me of many buildings - often faced with tiles or glazed bricks.

I then glue the ends of the tape out of sight
Which tape is that, Bob?

Sorry about that Dolf I have changed the wording in my post about using sticky labels and it now reads :

"I always use sliced white sticky freezer labels for window bars Nick. I then glue the ends of the bars out of sight."
