Busy weekend in the workshop

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

You have been busy, still lots left to keep you occupied for a while yet though. Will look forward to the next progress pics.

Busy indeed! That's some good looking stuff. What's the color on the Wasp? I really like it, sort of an institutional green. Very soothing..

Great looking effort-!! I think the pole vaulting team needs a new coach, though!

A number of people have asked about the loco colours.

They are all from the Halfords car paint range.

Dark green: Rover Brooklands Green
Light green: Vauxhall Reed Green
Yellow: Rover Inca Yellow

Hey I think I`ve met one of those guys brothers

I spent a few days last week painting a bunch of figures, he was one of them.
Looks better smaller and from a bit of a distance, say at least a foot.
I like the loco colours, I see you`ve made everyone happy with your colour variety. :D I don`t know if you`ve seen any of the yellow vs. green threads but the debate gets stirred up and then it can turn blue :roll:

I'm sure this says more about me than them, but either they are concentrating very hard (focusing on doing better next time?) or to a man they have terminal constipation...




Think I'd better go now!

Their concentration :shock: may have something to do with the poles they are sitting on. :wink:

The figures look like 1 : 24 Tamya mechanics with overseized 1 : 22 heads, maybe from Preiser.

Have Fun

My take on a least 3 of them is that they are UK made from a source no longer available.
One in my hand at the moment, different body but same head as final figure.
This is the range I was referring to:

Why are all of them looking sad, their heads are looking down between their legs.
Raise 'em up so they can smell the flowers! :-)

Try Modellers Resource UK.

I think that they are the figures; I have purchased a few of them recently. They also do a few 1/24 accessories, such as milk churns & oil drums.

Service I received was excellent (usual disclaimer)

Most of them were resin castings from the Model Citizens range.
They still need finishing, where does the time go?
I must build the layout, I have the stock, buildings, vehicles and people, just need to sort the plan.
