  1. Thanks Noel much appreciated.Ive sealed them with Humbrol acrylic matt varnish.Ive also used Revell enamel varnish from the airbrush in the past but personally i just find the aerosol handier,saves cleaning the airbrush afterwards.
  2. Geoff there is a link to a list of their products on the manufactures section of the forum.
  3. I gave these Oxford Diecast Land Rovers a quick makeover by removing the British Telecom signage,adding some ESB decals and painting the ladders.Not a bad result for so little work.
  4. Pity it will be no more.An excellent layout with some fantastic stock.
  5. I think you've nailed it with the fine granite Noel,looks great weathered too.Nice job.
  6. Cheers Dive.Exactly as you say,when I was comparing the model to photos of the prototype it just looked too tall to me.But it not only looked too tall it was when I had it alongside my curtain side cement wagons which was the reason behind cutting them down.Next job will be to put them back together and add a little weathering and they should look fine.
  7. That's what I have done Popeye.The one on the left hasn't been cut yet its the last one from 7.
  8. One left to cut and as you can see I have taken off the bare minimum but I think it makes a big difference to the appearance of the wagon.I'm a lot happier with how it looks now sitting on the chassis.
  9. Here are some bagged cement wagons that I've started a little work on.I picked these up from Irish Freight Models to run with my 4 wheel curtain sides as I always liked the look of them mixed together in rakes when in service.
  10. Very impressive.And always to the highest of standards
  11. Love it Kieran.What a great scene, looks so realistic.
  12. Thanks for the comments guys very much appreciated.Popeye the 40ft sits nice and snug onto the flat and doesn't move at all which is great.The 20ft however is just sitting on it in the photo so once its on the move it will fall off.I do have a couple of ideas in mind how to sort it so it should be an easy fix.Rich the rust is made up from Humbrol weathering powders.I use a mix of Iron oxide Dark earth and Rust.I just brush it all over the area I'm working on and then gradually take it back off until I get the look I'm after.Once that's done just seal with matt varnish.
  13. Other than a couple of small errors at the beginning which was down to me not bothering to read the instructions properly,its job done with some weathering to finish it off.
  14. Lovely work on the H van Rich,them pics on the layout definitely capture the atmosphere from the time.
  15. The frame has now been completed and Ive given it a blast of primer.Its also had a good run and is working fine on curves and over points.Last job is to give it a couple of coats of red oxide and add the decals.
  16. Thanks for looking lads.I must admit Popeye it looked quite daunting when I opened it up first but once I got going it went together really easily.There's alot of cutting bending and filing but its well worth it when it starts taking shape.
  17. This has been gathering dust for a while so I thought it was about time I had a go at my SSM 42' bogie flat.Its just the one for now as this is more of a practice run for myself before going ahead and investing in some more.So far the underside spine and bracing have been added to the main frame and yesterday evening I made a start on the container locks which are tiny but well worth the work when finished.
  18. Same here,I like the thinking behind this,looking forward to it.
  19. Hi Mike,the 141 and 181 were more or less identical apart from some small details.The main difference was the power of the engine.The roof detail was fairly basic with a grill at one end as you say.I can post a pic of a Murphy 181 if it helps?
  20. Great to meet a couple of the lads from the IRM team today.The ballast and bubble looked absolutely fantastic
