The Quarterly Garden Railway Gallery

Well I'm not sure how much real support the idea of a photographic 'competition' has, with 24 yes votes and 4 no votes, but 646 views of the thread! Even with multiple visits to look at posts/replies, I suspect that means that a lot of people are not interested. However if only half of that 24 actua...

Re: Repairing 'crazed' paint

Thanks guys. i think we are all on the same page. It used to be called "Turps substitute" here. However these days there are products called "Low odour white spirit" which smell different and don't have as vicious effect on plastics,so might not be as effective in this application.

Re: North East Victoria Railway

Sorry, I think I wasn't clear. I meant that the print bows inwards as it deposits the layers. ie each layer is minutely offset inwards. It is probably a combination of speed/temperature/layer height and who knows what else, in my settings.

Re: Repairing 'crazed' paint

Greg,
I'm not trying to be clever, but when you say turps, I assume you mean 'white spirit' not actual turpentine proper?

I'm told by SWMBO that gnome stands for Guarding Naturally Over Mother Earth.

Re: Build on Snow

Very good Gerald. A novel idea. You are welcome to more low temperatures though, personally I'm hoping for them to go up a bit here!

Re: TVT - First Turnout and Infrastructure

Very nice, steady progress. Screwing up the width of the curve is very easy to do (how do I know?).

Re: North East Victoria Railway

They are indeed printed as one big lot, the 4 wheelers dont have a floor. the end beams locate them in place and the flatcars. ........If I was ever going to print wagons for anyone else I wouldn"t do it this way. My printer isnt quite feeding right which results in rough prints which many people p...

Re: New Photographic Competition

I must admit that I hadn't anticipated the subject of digital processing causing the dissent that seems to have been generated, but perhaps the problem is in the title? Perhaps it shouldn't be called a "Photographic Competition" which perhaps implies that it is really all about the actual photograph...

Re: New Photographic Competition

Perhaps we should be asking why the previous competition ended? I think ( and I stress "think") that it ended simply because the last winner failed to submit the theme for the subsequent competition and the person who was running it at that time failed to do anything about it. Having said that, I t...
