    I model Irish Railways CIE & GNRI From 1960's to 1990's.Some are kits & others are bought and kitbashed. some are made from scratch. All rolling stock is wheathered which i think makes all the difference & realistic.I love to see other peoples work & i know how many hours it takes, but it's worth it.

  1. The bright yellow finish on the plough van is hard to get it darker. It took many thin coats and dry brushing, you can't do it all in one go. Sometimes i had to wash it off and try again, not easy. Now i have to do the other one.
  2. Close up pictures will show up every little flaw. But it looks great and has an aged look to it.
  3. It took a lot of work to get the right effect. It was built up with brown enamel then varnished and dry brushed with more brown and Humbrol rust powder, then varnished again.
  4. IRM Ballast Plough VAN. Here are a couple of pictures of the IRM Plough van, before and after weathering.
  5. It must be nice to just walk along the track to get the best picture location.
  6. Very nice, I like the stone on the tunnel.
  7. I had a problem like that once with a Bachmann railcar. When i opened it and had a look at the drive from the motor there was a very small piece of plastic catching as it spun round so i cut it off and that cured it. I don't know how much you can see with the cover off but have a good look inside when the motor is running. you can slow it down and try using a magnifying glass.
  8. The bolt heads look excellent, must be a slow job, there are so many.
  9. The Scalescenes model is just under one meter long, so it would need a lot of room to sit, but it would look great.
  10. Here are 4 pictures of the BELL Container ships which would not be too large as a model.
  11. You could try Scalescenes, they do a container ship you have to make from card but it looks the part. £7.99.
  12. That looks amazing, I think i would be afraid to touch it, just stare at it all day long.
  13. Looks great. The shelves are a nice way to display the stock. The way things are going you will need all the space you can get. BTW is that bird real?
