Always good to see a big "train engine" doing it's own shunting instead of having a tank do all the work for it.

It seems lost on younger modellers, who have almost certainly never witnes ...

Autoferro 28 now has a cowcatcher fitted. It's been lying around in the pile of scrap near Grande Shed for some time but I've only just got round to attaching it to the railcar. 27's had one for a whi ...

Yeah, not planned that way. Black magic marker, weathered by dry brushing with grey acrylic to take the shine off. Must be a dominant pigment in the marker pen. I'll go over it with a dry brush of rus ...

I blame Giles for this, he pointed me in the direction of some very interesting 12 inch to the foot scale bodging on Chris Ford's blog.

Nothing wrong with those old blue box Athearns. Just compare them to the British market for the same era. The US models were way ahead on appearance and the performance was, indeed still is, spot on w ...

The b/w photo reminds me of the layouts in old 1960s and early 1970s Railway Modeller mags. I had a stack of them, all second hand and very well thumbed. It's not just the card buildings but also the ...

I love Discworld (and breweries, or at least their products), the illustrations on the covers of Pratchett's books have some wonderfully eccentric looking buildings in them, very tempting to model. [u ...

Thanks for replying, I hope it didn't come across as moaning but I was just wondering if there was anybody out there.


Peter, sorry to read about your PMR. I hope the pain isn't to debilitating. G ...

Good call extending the platform to just short of the backscene, easier to hide the join from view than blend 3D and 2D, especially with something as awkward to model as water. Nice touch with the ope ...

Rather than low relief buildings how about modelling the rear edge of the baseboard as the quayside with a (very) low relief ship towering over the scene? If each end of the vessel, one pointed the ot ...

Isla Blanca could be about to enter the diesel age.

Staff and local passengers will appreciate the cleaner environment, tourists expect steam though. The FCPyF was heading for a dieselisation progr ...
