What techniques were they, Martin - some kind of lighter drybrush? They look great, I really like the exhaust on the first one. Although I finished up with a dry brush the yellow loco was mostly washes of quite watery acrylics over a red oxide undercoat. The yellow went on as a base coat, roughly s...

Oh.. and the other day I decided to dig out all the Gn15 bits to sort out what stock to use for this layout. I'm sure many of you have much bigger Gn15 collections, but it surprised me how much I had tucked away!

Need to wait for a few bits before I can get started on the layout.. so I thought I'd make a start on some of the stock. Two locos painted and weathered.. bit of work to do on a couple of wagons yet.. Tried using some different techniques.. http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b160/mogworld/Gnulayout/p...

yes and no. Not having a suitable place to spray - I don't. I've had a bit of a dabble with an air brush to weather, using acrylics.. but as the cellar is my only (damp orrible) workspace, not really a good idea.

ah... that's a bit clearer in my head now.. so one would see the traverser anyway.. I was kind of seeing that orange bit on George's sketch as a view block.

That's how I understood it too David. Seems to be screening the traverser rather than turning it onto a scenic 'feature' ? But.. I am easily confused. :D Here's a traverser that's out in the open.. http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b160/mogworld/traverse2.jpg http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b160/m...

Thanks for that.. I had found an online shop in Germany but I think this works out cheaper once you take postage rates into account.

:D Bob..Great minds and all that.. that straight secton is just about the right length too.
It's becoming a bit of an homage to Sir Carl :D .. Micro layout, Gn15, CD turntable, locolift fiddling... I'll have to put a smoke unit in the factory too!

:D More doodling amd more thinking and more changes. :D I kept applying the KISS principle and tried to keep the layout self-contained..no stick on cassette appendages etc. Carl's recent article reminded me of the CD turntable wheeze.. and I reckon I may now have a plan for a layout that will fit in...

Gnine 'industrial' prototypes?

I haven't been sucked into Gnine yet :D .. very appealing BUT something I'm not clear on.. most of the Gnine projects seem to be fairly 'industrial' looking .. those nice little Titches etc. If Gnine is representing something like 8" gauge how reflective is that? My limited railway knowledge se...

Thanks for all the inputting guys.. Giles - I know what you mean but I may well be using fiddly couplings which would need a hands-on approach - making the first plan less workable. This one does sacrifice some things but I do manage to get it into a smaller space (a bonus). As for operating.. I hav...
