    IRM 'How to' videos. What would you like to see?

    Happy Friday everyone!

    We're thinking of doing a series of 'how to' videos around railway modelling in the coming weeks and months. What would you like to see us tackle? DCC operation? Ballasting? Kit building? Weathering and painting?

    Let us know by commenting below!

    General painting and weathering skills would be great. Good idea

    All aspects of wiring layouts including bus wires, dropper wires and how they are connected and fed to the controller and switches such as DPDT etc.

    Another issues could be the cutting and shaping of plastic sheeting and the tools used. Particularly how is the plastic cut straight and how are openings for doors /windows made and kept straight.

    Yes I would second MikeO. Working with styrene and tools involved. Setting up your workspace, replicating shapes etc.

    Great idea. Few suggestions to add to those already made.

    • How to solder etched brass kits (e.g. SSM brake van)
    • How to use a lining pen
    • How to drive and shunt freight formations prototypically
    • How to install DCC lights in diesel loco kits (e.g. SF, SSM resin kits)
