    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. Very good, you must have used a whole roll of film on that.

    Beautiful. Will be great when it's all painted.
  3. I thought the small circular fittings might be lids that can be put on when it's raining, perhaps. Just a guess.
  4. Thanks guys for all your kind words. Now we need some rolling stock for it.
  5. J15 101 oo works upgrade. I have made a few modifications to the oo works J15 model. Weathered with black paint dry brushed on about 3 times. I added a new coal load and water filler lid. Some other bits were drilling the chimney hole down a bit lower, new front hook screw link from Hornby and a front brake pipe. I made a little clip to connect the power from loco to tender which pulls off and this is better when trying to separate the two. The main work was done in the driving area to add more detail with copper wire and brass wheels from Wizard Models. bachmann loco crew repainted and arms moved down. The first picture shows the cab side not weathered to show the difference to the rest of the loco.
  6. Is it just me or does anyone else find that photo's are very slow to load as you scroll up or down a page?
  7. I call them models Toys are for children.

    You won't be needing any Noel you have your own high class ones. 😄
  9. James May goes inside Hornby on BBC 4 Wed 6th at 9.00pm 2 parts. Should be good, and another model railway programme is on after that on the same channel.
  10. The colour looks good. Did the lining go on ok over the bumps and handles?
  11. Very nice, do you varnish them after weathering?
  12. Very nice, i like the weathering.
