Hi all,

 

Well - a few photos of some of my N gauge Scalescenes efforts so far. None are completely complete yet - need chimneys and sealing/lighting. I'm looking forward to the finishing touches, wires, weeds, lichen and the like, but so far - so good...

Tricky little blighters - but well worth the effort.




The hole in the Garage peak is where I'll be installing a fibre optic gooseneck lamp (complete with metal shade!). I heat the fibre optics and bend them, then melt the end with a lighter into a 'globe' - watch this space...





I have added styrene strips to the windows on this model, as a test for others - I think it looks good, so I'll do the same to the other 'frameless' windows in other models (like the goods shed for example)



Check out the levers! Made from snipped staples...:shock:




Goods shed - still requires window treatments, door handles etc - on my layout, this will be the dispatch building for a small engineering firm, delivery of pipes, sheet and wire, dispatch of engineering equipment like transformers and chunky building 'stuff'...



The 'Talmun Arms'... The upstairs window will light up when the hidden switch in the tunnel below this building is switched to 'diverge' (not the attic window, the second floor...)


 

Anyways - as I said - still plenty to do on each model - but I really like the way they are coming up!

:thumbs

Thanks for the encouragement Derbys12... I love building these things...

Stay posted - I'll be dabbling with fibre optics over the next few days...

I too am a big fan of Scalescenes - although they do take a long time to build.

Your fibre optic lighting sounds interesting Matt ...........I'm wondering why melting it doesn't just soot everything up :hmm

I think I may have stuffed the post with the link...

:-(

The fiber optic light is in photo '01 Dawn...'
At least it works! Trickier than I hoped - but first time round, so hopefully i'll get it better next time (station lights):???:
