Re: Stockpiling structures

Cheers gents. I also find it interesting to see how foreign structures are built to suit their local climate. One of these days, I'll find a suitable brick building to model.. Not today though, the jeweller is finished. The name is an inside joke at the expense of a well-deserving in-law. :lol: Afte...

Re: The Leawarra Nayook Railway

Superb!
Out of curiosity, is the motion weathered to represent red paint under an inch of grime, or is it rusty? Nailed it either way.

Re: A Slightly Larger Ford-powered Project

Nice work Aaron, if it was closer I'd come and give you a hand. How is the flat head V8 holding up? Grant. Crusty, but it's in there. The loco's a runner, but too thirsty for regular use. I'd love to to a proper nut-and-bolt on the loco - I even have the correct Ford Green engine enamel leftover fr...

A Slightly Larger Ford-powered Project

With my car finished, I've finally been able to return to volunteering at the Woodford Railway in QLD. If there's any interest, I'll post the occasional thread on restorations, new projects and eventually, a long-overdue return to steam. The Malcolm Moore loco we use as a guard's van, lives outdoors...

Re: The Leawarra Nayook Railway

Might have to follow suit with my own roller, I have the same issue.
Might even give it a proper crank handle, and replace the vice grips I've used the last 7 years. :lol:

Re: Tytherington Light Railway

Damn fine setup already, can't wait to see the extension.

That trapdoor looks very useful for storage, too.

Re: Building a Roundhouse kit

Glad to help, Swift16 parts certainly lift a model even further.
They're your couplings mate, keep em! I can't tell you how many times I've come to regret swiftly ridding myself of leftovers.

It's hard to think of any other improvements you could possibly add to that loco. 8)

Stunning as always Aaron, You've absolutely nailed the rural Queensland look. You're too kind, I thought it was a bit rubbish - not enough space to do it properly! You do amazing things with your Modular system! From the other side of the world, I'll never get to see it in person, but it is one of ...

Re: Sweet Miscellany

The photo made the floor look cleaner than it was, but I must agree it needed more dirt.. I copied the tool painting techniques from Night Shift on youtube. Those skylights add a good bit of charm to that standard gauge wagon. Things like that are why the old ways have such an appeal. My little wago...

Really, really like that one. I had an MSS years ago, intending to rebuild into something similar. Never happened in the end.
