Re: Still modelling Gn15 or just looking?

Still busy modelling on "Longstone".
Making wagon loads, and sourcing, adapting and painting figures at the moment.

Re: Longstone 2

Thanks Michael. I can do "small", honestly. During my 009 days (2014/15) I built this little competition layout: http://gn15.info/photo/images/2017/11/21/DSC00005.jpg It is 19" x 17" and called "Raven Gill". Behind the castle tower or "folly" was a two-road se...

Re: Orchard End

Stunning detail and realism Roger, superb.

Being fairly new to Gn15 myself, I don't recognise those figures. Could you tell me where you got them?

All the best

Re: Longstone 2

Thanks everyone. I assembled to whole layout last week for a test run. Everything worked Okay apart from the Mill siding where I had "got my wires crossed" - literally. Though scenically there are lots of little unfinished corners to attend to. I did take some photos, but they were either ...

Re: Longstone 2

Spring Head Mill board. I thought that things have moved-on sufficiently to try a few posed photos: http://gn15.info/photo/images/2017/10/17/DSC04973.jpg "Proteus" is seen shunting into the mill siding. I was hoping to to be able to protect the mill siding with a gate, but space didn't all...

Re: Longstone 2

Thanks Les and Doc, I know that my way of making things is not everybody's cup of tea. I chose to build in this way as it is relatively fast(?), also the stone work is similar to the area that I wanted to model, and it is very light weight, in fact if I could find something strong'ish to replace the...

Re: Longstone 2

Hello again, work continues at Longstone, although I haven't built any rolling stock, I have been quite busy arranging the Mill Board buildings. Meanwhile, I was wary that, during running sessions or exhibitions, my stock may decide to topple off the boards at certain points on the layout. I didn't ...

Re: Photo hosting?

Tom, I have re-posted the images on my last two or three postings using "http" address and the "BBC code" but it depends on having the time to re-post earlier photographs.

Thanks

Tom, has let me know of a possible problem with the photos at gn15.info/photo. The address he advised me to use on 15th July was an "https" address, but he think this may have a time limit or something linked to it. I may have to re-post images from an "http" address. I have done...

Hello, sorry to bother you, but the new gn15.info/photo hosting appears not to be working. It was OK yesterday when I did my latest post, but not now. I have spent a awful lot of time re-posting images to previous posts since the trouble with photobucket, so I am just hoping they are OK. Many thanks...

Re: Longstone 2

Not a lot has been happening on the Longstone Estate in the last few weeks, probably because the staff have been helping out in the gardens cutting down overgrown trees (or sunning themselves). So I decided to make some more for them to cut back one day: Two trees are being created for the back of t...
