Re: Primer for 3D printed kit

Thanks Steve!

I guess that would be this stuff - https://www.halfords.com/motoring/paint ... 51591.html

It says it's for bare metal or existing paint, but if it works for you I'll give it a shot...

Primer for 3D printed kit

Hi all, I've just started work on a 3D printed kit (pics soon on my Rolling Stock thread) and would like to ask for advice on primer. I was thinking that I couldn't get any at the moment, but I've discovered that our local(ish) Halfords is offering Click & Collect from the car park, so I think I'll ...

Re: Time to build a railway...but where?

That's a lovely horsebox Peter...

With all your livestock wagons you could have a "County Show" themed running day in the summer, with a train for the animals and an extensive passenger service...

Superb!
It is, isn't it? How's the painting coming on Bertie?

Nice to hear from you Rob - don't know if you've seen these, but they made me think of you? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Exclusive-Ffes ... 4587609038

I just can't get over how neat your metal work and plastic work are
And the paint job, don't forget that!

A lovely model - I particularly like first picture...

Hi all,

Briefly donning my moderator's hat, I've changed the thread title to better reflect the content.

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Hello! As promised, here's an update - if this looks like a load of cr*p, then I've got it about right: Wagon loads 2.jpg A little research showed that back in pre-preservation days the Welsh Highland sometimes used to carry manure - which I've (hopefully!) replicated with a compost/PVA mixture and ...

Re: Where to build a railway, I know, dining room table!

Tiny little trams do sound very interesting :D :D I haven't actually built any, and probably won't for years, but I do like the idea... I reckon trams would be quite easy to condense, length-wise, without losing the character, and they could look great swing round those sharp curves. I'm day-dreami...

Re: Where to build a railway, I know, dining room table!

Just catching up on this, and it looks very interesting - I'm finding myself tempted to get stuck into some sort of quirky micro-tramway, with tiny 4-wheeled trams...

Lovely loco, by the way Steve.

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

Yes please to the buildings thread! Your line is looking great - for a "tiny, barren wasteland" you've squeezed in an incredible amount of realism and atmosphere! Re MYOB, if it grows the same there as here I think you might just need to leave it a while. My ballast is held in place with SBR, so is ...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

The loads look incredibly realistic and 'fill' the wagons 'properly' (i.e. no gap between the load and the wagon side) Ah. That's very kind of you, but the apparent lack of a gap is largely down to camera angle - some of the loads are quite "gappy"! Painting the edges of the blocks helps though - a...
