yes
the progress in the development of hobby finishes has been amazing.
i think we all should thank the military modellers for this,but still you have to have intelligence to use them.

good morning all happy new year.
busy time of the year for me wishing all good health for 2016.
as i have mentioned i am using n scale track and tiny rolling track for my flat pack module.
well here is a example of a mini' lister' that is perfect for the job.there is a quite a big following of mini garden railways typically using 10 and a 1/4 inch gauge but they can be re-gauged.n scale in 1/35 scale is -1 foot or 300 mm.yes i am working on a mock up and it works really well.
.

cheers kim

Hi Kim,

that's an optimal template for an implementation as photoetching in nickel silver.

hi russ and helmut.
yes minimal gauge railways i cant believe it the market is huge with all the suppliers having full books.just the thing to run around the back yard for gardening and collecting the fire wood.looking at the huge range the 1950 style garage is my favorite.2 big doors to open so you can run your half size lister plus wagons in out of the weather.it is a kit and made of plastic -cool.
my little model is really basic fabrication maybe that is what i like about it -straight to the point
cheers kim

hi all how are you all doing.
the top section  has taken its basic form, now it has to be dressed.i have been using brick by brick construction-great.white glue as a base just go for it.i like the sloppy tecknique.the top section is just a backdrop to the bottom section,i have the idear  but that will have to wait
kind regards kim.

I think the diorama may look better than any of your others at this stage of construction. -- Russ

evening all
my flat pack has moved down to the dock level.this is the section  will be in the water.the tunnel leads to the mysteries of the town great place to add over the top stuff.these sections of brick are all hand laid with ordinary plaster as grout.the steel beam is plastic.
cheers.

Kim,

that's got some disgustingly good atmosphere. I nearly can smell the area ... the stonework, decay, coloring look very good and got an very artistic touch. In spite of my foible for this artistic aspect those rivets seem a bit coarse and oversized to my mind's structural engineering side.

Cheers
