Hi Barry Great start :!: I like the idea of checking out the track and getting that working first before starting on the buildings etc. I like the cat and mouse connections, what took so long before using that theme. :!: :!: regards Ralph I agree with Ralph, we've been trying to get you to do that ...

I like your idea Gerry, :idea: but I would adapt it to laying the framework in situ on the layout and leaving it in place after casting. This would then represent the wood shuttering and enable you to deal easily with any 'odd corners'. I suggest this from the way I've laid house drives and paths in...

Superb weathering as usual Alex especially on the caravan.

Hi Stu Yes Pat was very talented.:cry: If I remember correctly the boat was glued on and the resin poured around it. I think it was done in 2 layers. The edge was done by fixing a length of wood to the side of the baseboard after smearing it with vaseline. This was then removed after the resin had s...

Hi Stu, When Pat did her 009 layout she painted the baseboard as 'greytrainz' suggests but then she used 'Bonda Resin' which is for laminating glassfibre for car body repairs etc. It isn't clear but has a brown tint to it which is ideal for still water. You can find photos here and scrolling down. D...

Does seem a good chance to meet up Barry and also to show some Gn15/Gn9 to the rest of GnOrfolk.

Must admit though that I haven't heard of this show, just the usual one in February at the Mid GnOrfolk Railway. :roll:

Very interesting link thanks Gerry.

1/24th Dolls house stuff is, in my opinion, getting easier to find in the UK.

Guess we'll just have to be a bit more patient :roll:
