I received a 'ghost sign' transfer for Lipton's Tea from Scale Model Scenery yesterday, and couldn't wait to apply it seeing as I had a spot already planned for it. Here's the result, on a Hornby Skaledale terrace house building. The instructions say these stick-on transfers are designed for card models, but I had no problems applying it to the resin building.

The ghost sign looks great.  I can remember travelling on the 85 between Putney and Kingston to visit an aunty.  Great memories of the Routemasters (and their unique smell!)

Yes, I must say I am very pleased with result.

:cool: :cool:

Just back from our local swap meet: I picked up this Heljan class 58 in Mainline blue for $AUS120. Tested perfectly on DC, so now has a Lenz decoder fitted. It joins three other Heljan 58s in my fleet: one in original Railfreight red stripe grey, one in Mainline greys, and one in EWS maroon. I wasn't really looking for another 58, but a bargain is a bargain!

A quick update on the recently purchased Heljan class 58. I have now removed the original style cab door handrails and added the supplied newer style combined barrier and handrail mouldings (compare with the photo in the post above). Here 58 050, Toton Traction Depot, is seen posed with 58 004 in slightly earlier Mainline three-tone grey (ex-Railfreight livery), also with the later handrail style fitted.

I must do this to the EWS liveried version as well, once I find where I have squirrelled its extra parts pack away!

I have just redone the concrete wall beside the London Transport branch line on Newton Broadway. The previous version printed with a pink hue, but this is rather better in colour. I also reinforced the joint a bit. There is much that is still temporary in the scenery on this area, including the brick wall on the left, which is Hornby Skaledale and can't be curved. The tunnel mouths are Peco but recycled from my old layout, so really need to be replaced with better items too. Still, I am happy with the progress, slow as it is.

I have just picked up yet another class 33 diesel! I offered $100 (Aus) and that was accepted, so I am now the proud owner of a Heljan class 33/2, 33 207 Earl Mountbatten of Burma, in Railfreight Construction livery. It had most of the extra bits in the box, but I had to fit my own couplings (I use Bachmann straight ones in preference to Heljans cranked ones anyway), and was missing the light guides and a bogie step at one end only. I have some Heljan spare sprues of 33 bits somewhere, so may even have replacements for these if I am lucky. It tested fine on Dc, so now has a Zimo MX600 decoder fitted and runs fine on DCC as well. I really didn't need another 33, but at that price I couldn't resist.

Thanks Tony.

As a quick update, I found the spare light guides and installed them. I found quite a few other spares I have but not the bogie steps, so I am still down one set of steps. I may just scratchbuild a set using the existing ones as a pattern.

I must source a set of etched plates for it too.

A little bit of work for the layout, rather than on the layout: I have finally returned to the farm scene for the back corner. I have been gluing the hedges and fences on now that I am happy with the overall look. The front retaining wall will adjoin the railway and I am thinking of using a concrete texture for that. The small white patches are wet glue that "escaped"!

The etched name plates and shields for 33 207 arrived from Fox Transfers. I forgot to order the depot plates as well, so those will have to await another order (I usually try to buy more than one item to share the postal costs a bit).

I found that the etched plates were slightly shorter than the printed ones, so had to scrape off a little from the ends of the printed plates, which also removed a few small chips of paint. I found that a Humbrol grey #64 from the standard paint range was a very close match to the light grey, but unfortunately glossy against the satin finish, so had to matt varnish the touched up patches afterwards. I will eventually do a little light weathering on this locomotive too, so that will hide any very slight mismatches.

On the industrial front, I have numbered and named the B2 Peckett 0-6-0ST, after removing the NCB lettering using T-cut. Unfortunately, the T-cut also removed some of the blue paint, but I will be weathering this locomotive in due course, and its new name plates hide some of the black areas, so the effect will not be too obvious. She is now No. 18, Amarantha.
 
The new No. 19 has also just arrived, a Hornby Ruston DS48 diesel, which will not be named for the present. I want to repaint the Army green to a blue livery but retain the wasp strips on the ends, hence my choice of this model (it saves me having to paint the wasp stripes in the first place!). Installing a Bachmann (Zimo) 36-568 6-pin decoder was a breeze (after noting any areas of concern referred to in the model rail forums) and works perfectly.

Note that the Leyland Atlantean bus in the background does not belong in the goods yard. I have been rearranging some of my storage for both trains and road vehicles, and this was placed there temporarily.

A quick dab of thinned Network South East darker (later) blue, then a thin wash of black over the blue patches has given this result. Once weathered lightly, I think it will all blend in nicely.

The black wash is still wet in the photos.

Just about finishing the Ruston saga, I have painted it Network South East dark blue, added a wash of black, then given it a coat of satin varnish. The cab roof was painted light grey then given a black wash (which fortunately dried with a matt finish), and added a driver (one of Hatton's 3D printed figures intended for the Hornby Peckett and Hatton's own Andrew Barclay 0-4-0ST steam locos). As can be seen, the blue ends up very close to the shade used on Hornby's 0-6-0ST Peckett, which is what I was aiming for. The final touch was to add the Number 19 etched plates from Narrow Planet. She could still do with a spot more weathering, but there's no hurry for this.

p.s. As can be seen, I got the driver to shift that Leyland Atlantean that was spoiling the background in the previous shots!

I have been continuing work on the farm scene, which will sit in the back corner of my layout. The curved concrete retaining wall at the front will adjoin the railway. There are some more details and patches to go: I had to pull the fence out again (which seems a retrograde step, but in the longer term it will all come together) to fill the gaps behind the wall, which will then be painted when dry, and more vegetation added, including some rougher shrubs, weeds, ferns and vines. I haven't decided what fence style (or hedge) to use for the separation of the field at far right from the railway.

Nice farmstead Jeff - what did you use for the roof on the farmhouse ?

Just a comment on the dutch barn - it looks far too small against the pig sty - they are very tall structures !  If, in fact, it is a dutch barn - maybe just a straw store having a similar design to a dutch barn ...............?

Hi Peter. The buildings are all from Hornby's Skaledale range, although I have been altering some of the colours. The Dutch barn is labelled as such in the catalogue, but as I can't fit anything bigger in that location anyway, I'm not really worried as to whether it's a Dutch barn or merely a a hay store. A hay store fits the bill just as well. :)

I should add that even the pigsty is a bit on the small side. I was going to put two pigs per stall, but the ancient Airfix pigs are much happier with one per stall. As it is, they have to duck to enter the sleeping quarters. 

:mutley :mutley :mutley

Farm scene progress: things are happening more slowly as I get into the detail work.

The gaps under the pig sty walls have been covered with a little thicker glue and scatter material.


P_20200113_181938_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


I have added some rough turf along the embankment and at the end of the Long Field. A couple of Noch turnips have been planted in the farmer's vegetable garden, and ferns along the fence line on the embankment, as well as a couple of "escaped" turnips. Some ferns have also gone into the rough at the end of the Long Field. I have a couple more packs of the laser-cut ferns, so will add a few more to the scene later. There are nine ferns per pack.
