    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. Perfectly brilliant assembly. I bet you could build watches & clocks.
  2. They don't look too bad a match. The MK2d is Supertrain and the MK2a is IR so they normally are different. The supertrain livery is usually a bit more brown.
  3. Is the A1 silver the only one with sand boxes? and should A30 not have the too?
  4. A beautiful model and the cab detail is amazing. Great job.
  5. That's good. Do you know if the fan will be black too. If not, it might be a bit bright.
  6. I see the fan grills are different, one black and the other one silver. I think black would have looked more normal in everyday use.
  7. I was never a fan of the silver livery but the silver model does look very good. Must go and count the savings.
  8. Getting near the end now. Looking good. Is that where you are going to float your boat, is there no water near by?
  9. The green colour on A29 is the shade of green I was expecting but the A42 model does not have the same apple green shade and A46 looks very dark. I think the white background doesn't help, maybe if they were photographed on a layout in good light they might look different.
  10. Check this out. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/114769445134?hash=item1ab8cac10e:g:CDgAAOSw7yxfpbpz Black, white, yellow stripes. These are vinyl stick on type and not transfers.
  11. Where should I start. I've never seen a scene with so much detail and realism. I love the platform details, it's got everything, the kids at the vending machine, the signals look great. The platform edging lines really look so neat. now all we need is the trains. Take a bow.
  12. A good tip, but I would try and lift the paint about half an hour after painting and it makes lifting the paint much easier.
  13. It looks very well indeed. I like that low angle view.
  14. Looks like a good match.
