  6. Bantry Town Station 1950's

    Many thanks again for replies GNRi1959-Great idea for the turntable-will chat to Mick84c at Club tomorrow night JHB and GNRi1959 The tank is made from Wills Vari Girder parts glued to a Plastikard base. It is then primed with Halfords Grey Primer and then sprayed with Humbrol Tank Grey Acrylic (67) Then it is weathered to what ever condition you require. The water is a piece of clear Bayer 60 thou plastic sheet painted underneath with a mix of AK Interactive Slimy Grime Dark and Streaking Grime.It is then glued to four pieces of Evergreen Square Plastic (One at each corner) at what ever depth you need. The surface is then coated with 2 to 3 coats of Micro Kristal Klear (Others are available!).Leave 24 hrs approx between coats. The number of coats may vary depending on personal taste.You will know when its right because it will look right! The water control device is made from odd bits from the spares box. Hope this helps.

    Thanks very much all. Broithe-The doors should clear the track.I am debating at the moment how to attach them! I may fix them in the open position as we have to remove all the buildings when we transport the layout. Smoke above will be added when I weather the shed.
