Gnew beginnings?

I don't know.. I hope so. Although I haven't spent much time on Gnatterbox of late.. it is my spiritual home :D .. and Gn15 is close to my modelling heart. I recently tried to get in touch with a few old contacts and started reading through Gnatterbox again. next thing you know, I'm fetching out my ...

Re: Any Gnotters still around?

spooky. I haven't looked on Gnatterbox for so long (shame) :oops: The first post I see is Gerry's. I can't believe it's been 6 years. Strangely I just had that ginger-bearded figure out last night.. my daughter was fascinated by the monkey-faced figures..(I feel some Gn15 brewing.) Nice to read thro...

I really like the idea.. haven't had a lot of success as yet though.. perhaps haven't tried hard enough. .. I did have a plan for a 'kit' to make a funicular which I must finish off. There's a guy who appears at local shows showing off O standard gauge stuff built in card. I take it the lacquering e...

In moments of calm I realise that these dilemmas will never be solved.. and decide to fret no longer.. just go with the flow!

the figures look great - a huge improvement on the originals. The first fellow though.. his trousers are a little tight for my liking! Suits you Sir.. :wink:

Like Michael, I'm catching up.. fascinating thread - really interesting to see such effective use of the textured flats. I had one short lived experiment with florists foam - crumbled to a fine dust that seem to cling to everything.. didn't get on with it - you've definitely made me look again.

These are great.. nice unified look to everything. I partcularly like the first one.
The fact that they are based around toys just makes them all the more like-able. :D

Just bumping this up.. Colin has posted some nice pics in prototypes and reminded us of the upcoming end of year running at Sherwood Forest.
I can't make it myself but any other Gnotters?

Sounds like a plan Colin. For those who haven't been before.. as well as the railway, there is a farm park with plenty of feeding pigs goats and other animals for the littl'uns. I have a sneaky feeling that I might have something on that day but I'll check.. even if I have, I would say 'go for it'.....

:D I really should drop by the old Gnatterbox more often - I forgot how entertaining your threads are Andy!

Lovely work as usual everyone - Gordon, those textures are great.

The brown ink from GW is useful - staining wood (balsa etc).. also for adding depth to other colours. It is quite strong undiluted. If you are going to try it one of Steve's wooden wagons, should work a treat. One method.. 1. Prime first. I use a grey matt spray 'Plasticote' .. weems to cover more e...

It's that sandshifty chap confusing me with his casual use of the Martins! :D

My first foray into any kind of railway modelling was in Gn15.. a pretty good place to start, or end up, I reckon.
