Hi Kim,
Welcome home, and nice to see some glue flowing again (which is more than I can say for my modelling efforts lately...haven't even unpacked since the last exhibition in October!).  Liking the big building backdrop idea, which always works well to make the railway feel smaller and more narrow gauge.  Lots of alcoves, lots of corners, lots of little stories.

Cheers,
Dan

well what better way to end the year with a bit of modelling.
i have been moving along with the general layout of the main building -two levels and the entrance to the boat lagoon i feel that i am beginning to get the hang of ace radium.i have been trying out the 1-4 inch brick paper from micro mark for a bit of a change i think i will be fun to trying to mess it up a lot.just lately i got the blue prints for a experimental 2 man nuclar sub that was in development by the huges corporation i have to build it.



anyway all the best for the last bit 2013 kim

A friend sent me a sample of that stuff a few years ago, Kim, and I didn't like it much, either. The texture and color were wrong, the bricks looked "blobby" and I much preferred the effect I got by printing bricks on card and scribing the mortar lines. In comparison to other methods we've seen here, neither my bricks nor Micro-Mark's reach the gold medal round. -- Russ

hi russ
what are you doing for christmas looks like the rest of the world is freezing there buns off.
the best brick sheets i have seen are marks, that are laser scribed.the effect i am after is a background far away effect so i selected a material that has very little detail.i will go to work on it and sees what will happen.my thinking at the moment is to dull it with a grey mist and pick out some of the mortar lines around the steel beams and pipes that will be added.
all the best kim

hi all
ace radium is slowly going forward.
what i have been doing is to get the base board and model filled in,that is to outline how the model will work as a whole.
it is 1 levels.the bottom level or ground level is the entrance and exit to the lagoon[black portion center of model]to give the model a sense of distance the track will  emerge  left under the 1 level water tower[it will travel out of sight. on the top level or 1 level there is a huge beam that supports the top building there the track travels in front of the building traveling under the water towards the frount of the model.this is one huge building with lots of spaces to be filled in.paint finishes well at this stage there are non i might paint the whole model one dark colour with one red beacon glowing in the channel tunnel.the photoes will follow in the next post
 king regards kim

For me, the biggest pleasure of a project thread, is watching how it progresses, how the individuals work, think, and approach their build. I find that I learn more from the this, and get more enjoyment out of this, than from the finished piece. Smiley
