Just thought I show show everyone what I have been working on lately, The layout is still not finished, It features a terminus station in a town scene heading out to the country and on to the beach.

It features a 5.2 mtr fiddle yard under the layout with 3 cameras to monitor the yard.

 

All track laying and scenery done by me.

Hi Dave

 

That's just brilliant, you have done an amazing job on this layout and it's not even yours. I hope the client really appreciates what you have done here, setting up the beginnings of a really fine layout. Hours of fun ahead.

Stunning work Dave - what's your secret on the trackwork? The weathering / rusting effect is bang on!

 

Weathering the track with an airbrush would have been too expensive due to the ammount of track. So I went to a motor factors that mix aerosols for car paint and got them to match the colour in a matt finish. Once the track was all fitted and tested I sprayed it wiping the tops of the rails as I went.

Its a quick and easy method and cheap too.
