    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. Try switching the wires to the motor over to change the poles over. +-/-+
  2. A new kit from Metcalfe model buildings is a beautiful castle kit which comes in several sections to make the full castle, you can view it on their website. It really looks very impressive.
  3. Love the clouds in that last picture, how did you do them?
  4. Beautiful, and very atmospheric.
  5. Probably a hi cube container if higher than the rest, so make sure you get the right one. C-rail Hi cube locking bars £1.00.
  6. WOW I'm not even going to ask how you done the railings. OK how did you do the railings?
  7. The background is great and gives it a sense of space. And i think the track looks very good.
  8. I hope that car doesn't reverse back.
  9. Much better. Nice work on the tops.
  10. Welcome and that's very nicely made and inspirational.
  11. Lovely pictures, and so much realism.
  12. Can't beat real coal, they look like a couple of tough nuts.
  13. Love it, it would be nice to see it running.
  14. Nice model and well built. There's nothing worse at the end of a build and then the varnish ruins it. This has happened to me with Humbrol varnish. I think the problem is not shaking the can for long enough, or it could be humidity. I stopped using it.
