Bod

Thanks for posting the information about your station you have made a super job of it.

Das clay pops its head up again Dave shakespear use that extensively on his layout to great effect i have bought 2 packs myself now but have not applied to to anything yet.

I have been dithering about my station main building for a while i already have bought a Wills kit but was not convinced it was right for where i was situating it.

Seeing yours looks more like the size and type i think will look a lot better in my situation so sometime in the near future you will notice an henryparrot station building thread.

cheers Brian

Bod, Sure looks good!
Very intricate detail on the roof of the station, how did you do that?

Thanks for the "staging" photos Bod - you'll realise that's EXACTLY the sort of thing we lap up on here. :thumbs

I am always amazed when I see the initial shell and then compare it with the finished article.  Yours really does look superb. :cheers

No rush but as soon as you've eaten your dinner, you can post the next batch of photos. :roll:;-)

Sitting on my desk is a parcel wrapped in brown paper and tied with string. :Happy

I suspect it contains a few more mineral wagons to join the weathering queue and a couple of blue/grey Mk1 BGs that will be part of a parcels train I'm putting together.

I have nearly finalised my plan for the loft.  I'm looking for a continuous run, but something fairly simple a'la Blea Moor with perhaps a couple of extra sidings added.  Hopefully I will post the final plan for comments soon.

Edit: Sorry Wayne. I missed your earlier question.  The bargeboards are from the Scale Link rabge of etch brass frets.  A very useful source of bits and pieces like that. http://www.scalelink.co.uk/acatalog/General___Scale_1_76__OO__Varieuse.html

Just looking at this set of images again and I noticed the rock face on both lines, they look very realistic, how did you make those ?

Hi Alan (and any one else who is interested).

The rock faces were made using the moulded Polyfilla method.  I used the lid from a tin of assorted biscuits, the type that you buy at Christmas. Into that I laid some crumpled tin foil and poured in the Polyfilla.   The crumpling is the key, it is done with a very light touch.   I didn't crush the foil into a ball it was more like just folding it.  The folding was done mostly in one direction only, this gives the impression of rock strata all flowing in one direction.

When it is dry the foil was eased away from the polyfilla.  The whole was then sprayed grey. I think I used a cheap primer from B&Q. Some of the pieces were used whole and others were broken and built up like a jugsaw until the result was 'pleasing to the eye'. The pieces were stuck with a quick drying PVA wood glue.

When in place black water colour paint was brushed over in different strengths, some watery to fill the crevices and some really thick, almost like dry brushing, to accentuate the formation.

It can be a time consuming business but I was quite pleased with the results.

Here is another picture.




The stream bed was made in the same way.  The stream was one aspect i wasn't particularly happy with. :sad:




Here is a photo i took much earlier in the build  when I was experimenting with photographic backscenes.




For those who 'know your hills and fells' you will spot that 404 is a good way from home. :lol:

A very interesting and informative "How to" Bod - thanks for that. :thumbs

One question (for now at least !!) - how do you stop the foil becoming wedged into the setting plaster - or am I guessing too runny plaster ?

The end result is very prototypical of many rock outcrops - particularly the smooth "slab" type of outcrops of very hard rock. :cheers

The first thing is to use the foil shiny side up. :lol:  Other than, as you guessed, making the mix slightly more watery than usual nothing extra was necessary.   The foil peeled away quite easily.

"making the mix slightly more watery than usual"

Yes - that's how I make drinks for the In-Laws.

Well at last some progress - of a sort.

After several days tidying and a zillion trips to the local skips I finally found the floor of the loft.  Revealing the following space for the new layout.  Not much yet but it's a start, which is good going for me. 





As I explained earlier, negotiations are ongoing to take over the second 'room' too. That would involve tunnel portals in the partition wall. Otherwise it's going to be a long thin one.

That is actually a nice shape, Bod - especially if you can encroach next door.  I'm looking forward to seeing more of your excellent scenery.  :exclam

My original layout, as described above, is now officially no more.

It's amazing how something so trivial, but something that you have put so much into, can become part of you. Or am I just being silly? I wish I as one of these who could build and get rid of a layout every year or so and think nothing of it.

I think Gordon has settled down a bit now, BoD.

Bod if you're being silly you have company! There were some beautifully created scenes on your layout and you have every right to feel attached to it.
