Hi Nick.     Terrific video, worth watching again. The birdsong is another brilliant idea, it is a pity that more video makers don’t follow that method. Hope to see you at more shows, weather permitting . Best wishes. Kevin

Great video. Is it DG couplings you use, Nick? Are they operated by magnets under the track? You must have a lot of magnets and operators eagle eyed to stop in the right place.

Hi Jon, yes DG's. There are 7 uncoupling magnets under the track. Operators know where they are as there is a small blob of white paint on the side of the rail facing the back of layout.

I've finally found the motivation and time (both have been a problem these last few months) to complete the weathering on the Railcar, just in time for the Uckfield show this coming weekend.









I'm really impressed with the running of this model, it is ultra smooth and quiet.

Well done with the weathering and populating of this fine piece of stock Nick. It should look splendid at Uckfield this weekend and I'm only surprised I haven't seen one at a show yet.

Quite agree about the running, I've only test ran mine for 30 minutes so far and very satisfied indeed, then put it back in the box for when I need it!

My best to you and your team this weekend,

Bill

Thanks Bill, I haven't seen one running at a show yet either. Hopefully it will raise a few comments.

There will also be another debutee at Uckfield which should draw some attention, a Hattons Andrew Barclay industrial shunter which will work Rancoutt's Cider Works yard. Another loveley RTR model which only needed couplings changed, crew adding and weathering. The blue version has a FINA logo on the tank sides but rather than remove it nameplates will go nicely over the top. Whilst I'm looking for something suitable I knocked some temporary ones up on the computer printed on photo paper which look a bit bright but will do for now.

 










Perseus is the name of the block of apartments that my son has just moved into.

Hi Nick. Splendid job of weathering on Perseus, it really looks like it has been left out in the garden overnight , got wet and left to dry, where it stood. Have you done a tutorial on the subject?     Best wishes Kevin

Not something that easily lends itself to a tutorial Kevin as it is mainly airbrush work. I follow the methods of Tim Shackleton and Mick Bonwick. Their work is much better than mine.
Searching "Mick Bonwick weathering" will take you to some more info if you are interested.

I recently picked up a couple of Tim Shackleton's weathering books at the Swindon show.

Utterly superb reading, great photography, essential in motivating one to do better!

Hi Nick . Thank you for your reply. I was hoping that “Airbrushes “ would not come into it.  Best wishes Kevin

Hi Nick
I always admire your weathering and these locos are no exception......subtle,understated but looking just right. Hopefully I can achieve a similar effect on my Barclay.....super little loco

I envy you and Bill with the railcar......I dillied and dallied because of reports of poor running and by the time I made my mind up the livery I wanted was either sold out or available only at a very silly price. Obviously running is not an issue with you guys......grrr:mrgreen:. Great job with the passengers, makes a big difference.

Good luck with the show

Best wishes

John

Thank you all.

John, hopefully you'll find one at a reasonable price eventually. It will be worth it.

Much Murkle has now attended 25 exhibitions. The packing, transporting and re-packing had taken its toll on the paintwork to the baseboards and fascias, although the layout itself has stood up to the rigors surprisingly well.

As Much Murkle will be on show at Pendon Museum over the weekend of 17/18 November as well as Uckfield this weekend, I decided that it was about time the presentation was improved. It has had a fresh coat of paint and a decluter of many of the notices stuck to the front of the layout.

If you are attending Uckfield this weekend come and let me know what you think. If you haven't been to Pendon then I would thoroughly recommend a visit.

I'll try and take some photos of MM in the exhibition setting and post up next week.
