One year since last post..

:cry: Just noticed that it is almost exactly a year since the last Gnotter posting. Wonder what we're all doing? Sadly we are down one since last year, still hard to believe. Hopefully one day I'll have a loco named 'Versif'.. or perhaps an industry on a US outline layout named Kanuritch Engineering...

That's a good tip.. one that a lot of wargames painters get wrong. With 28mm figures (around S scale I reckon) - I don't paint any eyes at all - let the shading and washing do it. In larger scales just a hint is all you need. There used to be an interesting model in the science museum which represen...

But why.... spend oodles of money on superduper sound units to get a steam loco sounding just like a real steam loco when you can't reproduce the steam and smoke?

Great tutorial thanks Steve.
I've just spent a couple of evenings making up some Greenwich couplings (for 009). These DGs don't look too hard. They seem to be well recommended in all scales (including 3mm).
One bonus is that they actually look like 'real' NG couplings too.

(F) Playing with Pointwork

Clearing my workspace I came across this point I'd made some time ago (not tidied up yet). A tight radius job especially for Gn15. Never got as far as testing it as I found that (because of the short switch rails?), it was going to be very hard to pull ... and therefore be a bit troublesome. http://...
