Semi-scale BR: Strictly Bulleid*

Post by BertieB » Sun Sep 01, 2019 11:17 pm

More video fun: round and round the garden like a... cartoon-scale, Q1-derived tank engine (first effort with Deltang R/C) and a (track powered) Leader.



At low speeds they don’t provide too much soundtrack on their own (annoying squeaks largely) so 1:1 scale audio (and music) has, I’m afraid, been shoveled on. Steam locomotive soundtrack porn.

It’s all a bit heavy handed and indulgent, of course. 13 minutes you won’t get back. Great fun to do though.

I was a little twitchy about the sequence of build pictures, given the superior skills generally on display on this forum but well, you know, what the...
And someone did actually once ask.

Bulleid, of course, (for non-obsessives, should there be any) was the controversial, innovation-at-all-costs (and last) designer of Southern Railway locomotives prior to nationalisation in 1948. He’s worshipped today by many and absolutely isn’t by others.

*Apologies to the Swanage Railway who ran a terrific, similarly named event a few years ago, featuring umpteen Light Pacifics.

Excellent. Why shouldn't you envisage another narrow gauge SR line, most of our railways are fictional based on personally selected facts! :D

A good video with some very nice atmospheric shots. Your choice of locos may be unusual but you have made a good job of the builds. One of our local club members a former SR driver has an 0 gauge model of a Leader which got a lot of interest when running at Guildex.

And thanks, yes, we can make a couple of thin factoids go a long way. Well, I try.

That’s very decent of you. It’s strictly kitchen table and plasticard. I wasn’t sure about showing it, as I’ve explained, in the context of the more accomplished stuff regularly featured on this forum - including, of course, your own. So, thank you.

For anyone who can handle even more of this stuff, here’s the ‘new’ (compiled from previously published clips) YouTube channel trailer.
Short and noisy!

Well (Bert) that was two very interesting videos, although for me as most members know I don't like music with them. The natural sound of your locos are well worth it on their own for me. I wasn't lucky enough to spend my schoolboy free time watching trains pulling their wares and when I see videos I always imagine me being there seeing those wonderful machines....

However having said that, I loved the B&W video and it was has if I was really there, brilliant. The end with the colour was actually a nice touch also. Can I make a suggestion for your next one if you are thinking of doing another B&W video, can you not verge the colour in like they do with professional films that are shown, not saying yours isn't professional it certainly is....

The second one with the short clips was excellent also, the cat popping its head through the plants was a touch of genius....

Now on to the build.....WOW, you are brilliant at working with Plasticard, it makes my poor efforts look ordinary. You are also correct in the fact it does take sometime in building with Plasticard, well it does with me. Well done (Bert) it's a brilliant build and I am looking forward to your next build.

Ps. Can we have a video next time without music, pretty please..... :notworthy:

Life is so easy when I run my trains. :thumbright:

Very nice. And I can tell the misses I've been watching a dodgy video without the normal repercussions... :D

Lovely video and the sound track with music was fine by me. The line and stock looked really effective. The cat of course stole the show.
Great stuff

There's some lovely editing together of pictures and sound there - very effective indeed. :thumbup:
