Well, they are already functional. Just I won´t make them working on this layout simpkly because all points have already their Zeep machine and are also already wired. But no doubt the next layout will have these levers workibg inbstead of motors. I must say the Decauville design makes the miniature...

Yes. that is why I asked Alan to design the parts so that the lever and weight arm can be done in messing.
He will have these point levers for sale at his Shapeways shop.

I will try to complete and paint the two levers today so I can post photos here.

The scene you´ve created looks really nice.

I can´t wait to see the loco pulling one or two wagons.

Also the tree shadow makes a great effect.

After reading my postings at the NGRM, my friend Ian Hodgkiss came up with the idee of looking for Polycarbonate plates which comes with several textures simnilar to glass´. I will look for that tomorrow as the shops are open again but just in case I´ve found that filling the groves caused by deterg...

Well, ´The day after`. Believe me, you don´t want to see any photos of what is left of themould, the glass and the casting. Aniway I´ve learnt a couple of very important things± 1) Before doing any casting make a list with eqach step and remove one by one only when already done. 2) At least the type...

I decided to go for the clear resin casting so took the glass, cleaned it properly from all clay rests and buit arround a good frame which I also carefully sealed. Took all precaution about the toxic dangers wearing appropiate clothes, globes, a mask and glasses. Carefully niveled the mould ensurein...

Since I decided to go for the clear resin castings I thought it would be nice to play withj the discarded DAS water surfaces. The onkly thing I did was to play during about one minute each time with dry pastels. Being the clay a bit porous, pastels work very nicely. But none of the colours will be u...

The bad news is Brian , who happens to be an 1:1 scale n.g. loco driver at the Sugar industry won´t be able to get ahead with the kits until the next 6 months have passed. The good news is he is going to make also a boguie version of the frame so we all will be getting a lot of oportunities to build...

Glen Thank you. I sprayed two different blues from opposite sides so to accentuate the texture. Of course that won´t be the colours of the water in my layout. That was simply a try to see if the material is responding to my expectations. And sure it is! To the real plate (380mm X 540mm) I will give ...

I´ve made a little experiment at getting a print of the galss texture in Das clay. I did it in a small piece so to try and learn. It worked perfecvt so I´ll try to get the full plate done same way and see. http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7346/8868368729_b146cf63f2_c.jpg DSC09277 by d.caso , on Flickr ...

Well, getting a plaster casting of the ´waater surface´piece of glass ended in a happy fiasco. As you will see at the photos here below, also the only dammage to the 380mm X 540mm X only 4mm thick plaster casting was casued at one corner by my impatience to let the pices dry properly in peace.

I have found an incredibly cute French railcar prototype. It was meter gauge and two axles so those two things must change. The 2 axles wheelbase would be far too big for the 200mm curves in the layout. I could make the Wirons/axle boxes pivoting but I preffer to make a two boguies version. And , of...
