    Stop Press!! Following discussions at our club night on Wednesday we have now been allocated enough space to erect three of our 4ft x 2ft boards (including the pier) at Sleaford Exhibition on Sat 2nd June. We hope to have a restricted service available and all of the buildings complete or part complete will be on display. Hope this is of interest

    looks ok to me David-I'm sure the railway authorities placed a hoarding there as they knew somebody would build a model of the line one day!

    You may need a passport issued by the Grand Duchy of Sleaford this year (at least they are printed in the UK!)

    Latest pics of Bantry loco Shed.Back to the drawing board for the door hinges-they just were not strong enough. Have fixed the doors in the open position and added a couple of clothing items and a notice on the door.(the shed doors will mainly be open anyway when the locos take water) Small lean to shed also added.Some small details needed to finish but nearly complete.

    JHB Have taken photos of the same piece of timber at various stages of painting and weathering,all based on Martyn Welch's book 1 is obvious! 2 is painted with Sleeper Grime (in this case Railmatch) 3 is top coat added (Revell 64) but add your chosen colour! 4 is after rubbing with a carbon fibre brush 5 is after dry brushing and rubbing in with finger (Humbrol 64 Grey pus a touch of Humbrol 24 Yellow) 6 and 7 after weathering with powders (Greys and Dust colours-just add gradually and not too much) you will know when it looks right. 8 is an experiment -wood painted as per the book (mix of Humbrol 64,110,29 plus a touch of 33 and 53) After dry brush sparingly with Sleeper Grime.Hope this is useful.
