Re: What to do with a tiny, barren wasteland?

Regarding the cream, I must agree; I usually prefer double what I'd used, but had to stretch the cream as it was running out. Not something I often do, and not all brands will mix in properly, but a teaspoon of cream is also very good in coffee. Peter, now that's the way to go. Thanks for the remind...

Re: First time scratchbuild project - Bagnall steam loco

Looks great. Not sure I've ever seen a Sharples chassis used with connecting rods. Looking forward to seeing it at the head of a train.

Re: The Leawarra Nayook Railway

The figures and smoke really bring that mill to life; it has to be one of my favourite line-side industries I've seen, in any scale. That conical spark arrestor quite suits the Regner.

Just catching up, lot of good solid work there. Particularly looking forward to seeing what you do regarding the sugar mill.

Re: What to do with a tiny, barren wasteland?

Let one of the Dracaena plants grow tall and develop a thick trunk, when you cut it down you can strike the top for a new plant and the trunk when dried makes a good log load, it is light and the bark has a lot of character. I have a few that I am going to use on my log train. Now there's an idea. ...

Re: Servicing Caddy

Very nice, that. Should do one myself. Quite like the combination drawer/side wall.

Re: What to do with a tiny, barren wasteland?

Enjoyment? Hadn't considered it, but you might be right; it's good to finally be getting on with such important work, after so long.. :thumbleft: Re-directing the runoff, why didn't I think of that.. :roll: Looking at the van, there's three pairs of rivets plugging holes above the rear windows. A hi...

Re: The Leawarra Nayook Railway

Well thanks, Grant. Though I must admit, I'm still quite new to weathering, and that iron powder really does provide almost fool-proof results. That "miniaturised window into a past world" effect, along the lines of what you've achieved, is my eventual goal. Looking forward to seeing that mill progr...

Re: Yet Another PDF Baldwin

Had the same thought regarding screws as crankpins. I could turn new ones (though I'd have to buy material and learn to get a decent finish turning steel) but the cranks' rear faces being countersunk leaves very little thread into which proper replacement crankpins could screw. I don't think filling...

Re: The Leawarra Nayook Railway

Aaron you didn't really think that I wouldn't be doing just that !!! It will definitely look like a working engine when I've finished with it LoL. Grant. I wasn't sure what to expect, if I'm honest. People often surprise me in the detailing they go to, only to stop just a hair's width short of real...
