Mark 1 Atkinson truck 1/24th scale

HELLO! Long time no see I know but my truck modelling side (which came back due to this forum anyway!) has really surpassed the model rail stuff I'm afraid but I have been helping develop a resin cab kit which may interest on here as a diorama piece? I mastered the cab and interior for this then my ...

Thanks for the replies Guys! Ian, I know what you mean about the string. It looks worse in the close ups. I may try and replace it altogether :D Andi, you should have the standard reply asking you to prove you're a truck modeller. As you say, Gordon slipped through and I have told Steve (admin) wher...

Leyland Beaver 1/24th

I know some of you will have seen this on http://www.24thscalemodeltruckforum.co.uk/ (Hi Gordon!) but I thought I would post on here as it is probably an age of lorry that may be useful on some of your layouts. The kit is produced by Steve who runs the forum. I sort of got him into resin casting and...

I know exactly what you mean about the interior - such a shame using a one piece mould - apparently the master was better but the caster (a woman but that doesn't matter - honest :D ) chose this method. Not sure if you need photos but I took these at Gaydon in 2010 http://s137.photobucket.com/albums...

Can I join in with the thread crashing? (you know why Gordon :wink: ) Andi, I have recently come to a similar conclusion - as much as I would like perfection in my modelling, I have neither the skills or the time to perfect them and as it is the building of models that interests me (once finished I ...

Great work on the CA, much better than my screens (I did post it on here some time ago) http://i137.photobucket.com/albums/q220/Milnerpics/trucks/IMG_4156-1.jpg I also opened up the grille and like you found the resin unbelievably thick.

(M) Card Fordson "F" printie

Some of you may remember I made a card Fordson for my old layout and there was quite a bit of interest but unfortunately there didn't seem to be any way of getting the plans anymore. The idea came up again and with some Googling I found it! http://web.archive.org/web/20060504183516/http://www.secura...

Very entertaining Andy!! Must admit though, that looks no easier than RTV and resin and the bit about having to guess the temperature etc makes it more difficult - with RTV and resin you just need some decent scales - no smell, no smoke etc If it works for you then that's fine but I can't help think...

Hello again! I got one of the parts box CA vans about 18 months ago. I think Andy at model-cars may have had one at some time too! The parts box one comes with a basic chassis and some great looking wheels. http://i137.photobucket.com/albums/q220/Milnerpics/trucks/IMG_4156-1.jpg clearly cheaper to g...

Nasal Spray! Great idea, I've been looking for a fine sprayer. I bought a Woodlands scenics one as I thought it would be made for the job but it's far too heavy a spray. Thanks for the inspiration Steve, Gordon et all, great modelling and instructions too!

In the UK, we have 'pound shops' which sell paintbrushes which would probably be good for the thatch. I have straightened sisal string though for reeds. Just cut lengths, untwist as much as possible, soak in water, hang with a weight at bottom to stretch and let dry :D
