Allan I love reading and seeing what you are building it is truly amazing. I am also planning a castle I have started on the gatehouse.

The castle's now finished -  a weeks work - and this is how it now looks sited on the layout.

As castles go, it's little more than a token offering and represents little more than a stronghold in semi-low relief.

Cheers
Allan.

A few shots showing the original hotel as influenced by David Meadens magic camera and its reduced rebuild.

Cheers.

Brilliant models once again.

I'm intrigued by the application of colour to the castles stoework. I can see that the black is applied as an aerosol, but curious about the application of the wood dye. Are both the black and dye used sparingly or flooded ? Also, is the application of talc done when the paint/dye is still wet to touch ?

Can you please let me in on a few of your trade secrets ?

Cheers, Gary.
 
Hi Gary.

I did answer your post detailing what it was that you wanted to know then the bxxxxy internet had the courtesy of launching it into cyber space and never to be seen again so I'll try again later when I've calmed down a bit !

Cheers.
Allan.

Right Garry, I'll give it another go - Wills Coarse stone treatment. and easier demonstrated than explained !

First just give the stone sheet a normal coat of Colron Georgian Oak wood dye then aiming directly at one edge of the sheet make a few light passes with an acrylic matt/satin black aerosol so as to throw a "shadow" under one edge of the stonework.

When this has dried - about  20 minutes or so - rub talcum powder well into the stone joints and scrape of the surplus then using a wide flat modelling brush lightly dab Colron English Light Oak wood dye over the talc and leave for about half an hour during which time the  whole section will lighten up and look like what you see in the photographs -  a subdued mortar effect in between the stonework but, practice the method first on a spare sheet of the stonework.

Cheers.
Allan

Thanks Allan for the tips, all very useful information. I'll take any advice you wish to give regarding model building/painting.

Cheers, Gary.

Hello Alan

Regards

I like the ornate skylight on the top of the Lyndon hotel. Lovely work.

Cheers

Marty

Chimneys look fine Allan.
Hmm, I was rolling a ciggie this evening and looking at those Rizla filter,s. One can get ultra slim ones.
I wonder if they would work for chimney pots?

Anyway lovely work.

regards,
Derek.

Hi Alan,
How is your lovely Railway/Town build coming along.
You lost a lot of posts due to the great Forum swop for want of a better word.
I am very interested on how you will handle the 0 16.5 railway within the Town.
regards,

Derek.

Hi Derek.

I 'finished' the layout a few weeks ago now and here's a few shots of the railway side.

Cheers.
Allan.

:):) Smashing photo,s of a lovely build Allan.

The trackwork does blend in well with the town.

I must say I am very impressed by the speed of your quality construction work.

Are you building some loco,s and rolling stock at the moment?

all the best,

Derek.

Obviously Derek you haven't seen a Downes built loco - enough bits left over to build another one !
