I tell you Paul, it took some doing, painting everything in black and white just for the picture, and then painting everything back to as it was :lol:

There's not a lot one can say about that Phil - it's just amazing .........:shock::shock:

It must be all those years of engraving that gives you the "eye" for the detail.  Absolutely mind blowing. :pathead:pathead

I'm going to spend some time studying it in detail then come back with the questions..................:cheers

Terrific work Phil - I couldn't hope to achieve that standard of detail. Hat's off to you!

Couple of questions:
Corrugated iron - Slaters?
And the road surface under the lorry. How did you do that?

Regards,
Shaun.

Thanks Shaun,

 

I can't remember the make of the corrigated sheets, I think they are Slaters, they come in about A4 size.

 

The area under the lorry, it looks like cracked concrete and it also looks difficult to do convincingly....not so, in fact the base is chipboard, this is the area where I did all my cutting, ie. plastic sheet etc, and it's just the knife marks left from this and painted grey.

 

Has anyone guessed what the lorry load is yet!

 

Phil

Hi Phil

I too enjoyed the pictures, some lovely modelling there with great attention to detail - super stuff well done.

Very very nice indeed.

 

regards

Ron

Do you mean what it's made from Phil or wht it's a model of ?

If the latter, some kind of mining machinery, if the former, the front bit looks like a bit of plastic sprue (judging from the little "blip" in the middle and is the rear bit a "rectangular tank" from one of the Dapol offerings ?

Forget the "rectangular tank" Phil - having looked again, it's far too small .............

The front bit looks like either a generator or winch of some kind - it's an engine given the silencer on the side and the rear bit is probably a fuel tank to run it ...........

Looking back to the previous shots - what are the windows ?  They look very "3D" so are they etched or plastic stuctures ?  Also, I'm assuming the stone wall (for the overbridge enbankment) is embossed plastic - it look great - but what's the black "hole" at the top just above the lean-to shed ?  Slate rooves - card ? plastic? or what.  Did you just pick out the "new" slates ?

Loads and loads of little details in there - fabulous stuff. :pathead:pathead:pathead

Thanks Ron.

 

Peter, that area is just the chipboard baseboard for the model, I painted over the scratches/cuts etc and to me it now looks like cracked concrete.

 

The front item of the load is the (I don't know what it's really called) electrical component taken from a Bachmann loco when converting it to DCC, the back item is the diecast firebox unit from another loco.

 

Phil

Wills, I think windows, slates (individual ones picked out) and embosed wall, small packs, about 4" x 3" sorry to be so vague but i'm working in my studio in the loft and my layout over the garage.

Can't see a black hole? can you ring it?

It should be called, Pen Y Bryll.  I was most impressed with the treatment you gave to the little people as well.

Details.  :thumbs
