Thanks, it is going really well. The figures are Modelu as is the guttering and down pipes I am going to use. They are very small but the detail is fantastic!

Hi Graham,
 
The box is looking really good, you should be pleased.

I'll be interested in hear how you get on with the Modelu rainwater goods, as the batch I received are very flexible and very bent. This may be just an early production hitch, as I was not able to straighten them out, but once glued in place, which looks easy enough, they may be just fine.

Best,

Bill

A bit more progress. Just the roof tiles and guttering to do now. I think the signalman looks pleased!

Hi Bill. The guttering is a bit on the bent side. I think I read somewhere that soaking in warm water helps to straighten them.

That looks very nice Graham.  :thumbs

Are you going to weather the ridge cappings like the tiles ?

Hi Graham.   You have got a really good looking cabin there. I have purchased two different plastic kits from Peco to suit the box that I have in mind “ North Kent West Junction Signals “ which was a timber example, near South Bermondsey station , and controlled the junction to the main line. But, in both cases the nameplate is too long for the  box .  Best wishes and a happy Christmas. Kev

Thanks guys. Yes a bit of weathering to do. The ridge tiles are 3D printed and were a creamy colour so I just gave them a quick coat of paint as a starting point.

Good to see the box almost finished Graham and it’s looking rather good.

What's next on the agenda when you return to the workbench?

Best,

Bill

Thanks Bill. I really ought to get back on the actual layout. There is ballasting and scenery to do. Lots of new things to try as I have never used static grass before!!!

At last, back to work on Beckleigh!!! First job is to paint the track bed before ballasting. I thought I might try to mask the rail tops with tape to make the clean up easier. 1mm wide tape seems to be the perfect fit. I have some track colour spray coming tomorrow so hopefully will be able to report if successful or not.

That's a lot of tape you'll need Graham plus, the spur on the left will need painting between the rails too ................. :hmm

To be honest, I wouldn't bother - it's not a huge problem to clean the rail head as you go along ............ :roll:  However, it's a good idea to mask the area around the switch rail, especially if you're relying on that for electrical continuity (but that's not really advised though .........)

Disregard that last comment - it looks as if you're using electrofrog points .................. :oops:

The spur on the left is where the engine shed goes and I have already put a concrete filler between the rails so have masked it. I have nearly masked the whole layout now and not yet used a roll of tape, it is very quick and easy.
