Nice. Of course WR Swindon built Warships were used from around 1960-61 on the Waterloo-Exeter run. And  the 100 Iron Minks loaned in 1937 until 1945.

While I have no desire to buy a new 61XX, my first memories are of building the old Airfix kit and trying to hand paint the single orange lining.
Your model looks superb with the extra detailing and weathering, Rick.

More goodies from the recent trip to Kernow MRC’s Guildford birthday bash. 

The Bachmann Scenecraft timber loads are very good indeed and have only had a very light weathering applied. Just a wipe-over with an already-dirty brush. 





The casks required just a little more work to meet my “used look” requirements and are seen here being loaded for transport. What might they contain?  Maybe something from the nearby Fuller’s Brewery?

It would be safe to say that this isn’t train 1M99. 

North British “Warship” D835 Pegasus draws to a stop at the shunter’s hut with a Warflat wagon in tow.

Hi Rick,You better ask the driver to get the wipers going. He can hardly see through the windows! Good shots anyway!

There are some great atmospheric shots there, Rick. You should be very proud of what you have achieved, and in such a short time, as well.

:cheers

Hi Rick,Once again fine photos. They remind me of my 'daunting' task - the Wombat Creek creek!

Hot tip - dust and then spray "water" with water before taking pictures and if possible have a light-source shining towards it.

Hi Rick,
How deep is the creek?

Hi Rick,
How deep is the creek?

In actual terms there are three pours of resin there totalling about 1.5mm thickness so scale that time 76 and it's just over 1 metre.  Over-deep by some margin, probably, for what it represents but we often have to accept compromises of scale.  

For the main stream the baseboard was painted with Woodland Scenics "Earth Undercoat" before the first layer went down, the second layer was also a clear pour but the top layer has a mix of Woodland Scenics browns and greens mixed through it.  That (I hope) has given both depth and colour through the water as well as being deep enough to place birds in it rather than on it.  

In the actual marsh area more green was used and the resin allowed to run where it wanted including over some previously-placed fine greenery.  That gives the impression of a good healthy marsh and again with a couple of pours of resin there is enough depth that the birds sit in not on the water.

Hi again,
Thank you very much for you reply. It is very helpful. I may probably try a solution without resin with a depth of 1-2 mm. I will keep you all posted - especially if I succeed ;-)

Keep us posted if you don't succeed pleas Clause. There might be a lesson for the rest of us.

I have added a couple of picnic tables to the glade scene. These lack umbrellas as I don’t recall such things being common in the 1960s. The one with the umbrella has been replaced in front of the pub.

I could go there for a picnic and  bit of train spotting too.

A first trial for the running-in boards. Cast frames with home-made signs. 

The green isn’t quite right but is the best I can get from my printer. It doesn’t offer the “rainbow” in reversed (coloured background, white lettering) and the Trebuchet font is later than the SR style intended but is quite close. 

A wipe-over with a dirty weathering brush has reduced the home-printed look somewhat. 

The paper is stuck to the casting with double-sided tape to avoid any risk of wet adhesive causing the ink to run. 

If I can re-print these on photo-paper and darken the colour a bit I’ll replace these in due course but they’ll do for now.

I did a lot of experimenting with colours trying to match on-screen colours to my printer. One trick I used was to duplicate the signs and change the colour - lighter or darker - and print the sheet with a number of options on the one page. Once I had a shade I was happy with, I'd print onto glossy photo paper to represent the shiny enamel signs.

Some of them did fade after a number of years, but then again, so did the real ones to a degree.

To my eye at least they look well enough to leave as they are.

A time-consuming and very fiddly task is under way - installing the lighting
