All of the above. Why not go for a real challenge? You want some ideas? Go take a look at Angarrack.

Well, with the new shed built and the new workbench in place, let the spraying begin. I will get some photos on here soon of the spray jobs, and no doubt I will require your help in this new topic for me.  I would be very gratefull if any one has any pointers on spray guns ..... thanks in advance !

I have also just seen some pictures of the ex silverlink class 150's that have cascaded to FGW and they are just blue and pink so fingers crossed Bachmann might release that soon and wont force me to have a go at spaying a complete unit  !!

Hi John

Just picked up this thread, great looking layout,keep up the good work!! I guessed you were a Hayle man with that name.

I'm an ex Hayle man now living in Somerset

I bought a spray gun last year and am now getting great results. My advice is

  • have a play at first on something old 
  • build up the layers slowly
  • have a look at pictures of the real thing
  • Make sure you thin your paint correctly
Here's a couple of pictures of a Lima 47 I weathered





Regards

Andy

It has been known !!!!  I was told that last year debbie the gronk came out off Long Rock to Angarrack to drag a failed 57 and Sleeper set back to the depot. Max speed of 20/25 MPH.......might have taken a while !

I thought Debbie was long gone. Any shunt moves at Long Rock are now done by the train engine, usually the 57 off the "beds". Last I heard of Debbie she was up at Laira.

For the rest of the World 08644 was for quite some years the Penzance station pilot and was nicknamed "Debbie"; that nickname was later recognised officially with the application of the name to the body sides.

Hi chaps - I've been in the roof this morning scrubbing the track and cleaning wheels getting the layout ready again now spring is here, but i'm having real trouble with the HST.  I have the chip settings set so that the train takes a while to speed up like the real thing, and as new last year worked lovely, but now it keeps stalling all of the time to a stop and having to pick up speed again.  Does anyone know if there is a special model electrical contact paste to put on the pickups, I have some electrical contact paste that we put into main isolator switches but i'm not sure if it will damage the model plastic. any ideas welcome please.

Have you tried this? A tiny spot on the wheel-backs helps to improve the power pick-up at the wipers.

Readily available from your friendly local retailer :cool:

Been there done that wear the shirt.

You are not the first nor will you be the last. Many of us will go through a "modeller's block" at some stage. In my case it was around 2 years ago when the sheer scale of the scenes I was trying to build dawned on me. Not to mention the input in cash and time!

My advice, if it's worth anything, is that the last thing you should do is rip it up. Maybe put it away for a while until the spark ignites again.

I often leave a tricky area for many months before just drifting back to it without any real plan or intent. Somehow things often then fall into place.
