Thank guys !

For the rust I used the traditionnal technique of chipping paint with acrylics colors et and oil colors.

To the fun I wanted to faithfully restore the rust present on these doors.


Most satisfactory. -- Russ

Hi Sami.
Your scratches are perfect.
cheers Kim


Thank Kim !

My last working was to create a concrete industrial yard.
Everything is built on the workshop and will be fixed on the layout after.

That picture of the concrete slab looks like the one at my shop, except that it is cleaner.  Nice job!

It all looks really good in the natural light, showing the colors and also the textures.

Excellent! It's hard to beat natural light for photographing models.

Only that not yet a gravelled track in front of it, brings you back into the model world.

the journey is the goal


Hello guys,

My theme is a french railway. In the trade there is no SNCF track and switching in HO scale.
The proto 87 club offers kits and accesory to get a realistic railway. My switching is build from map.
The railroad ties are in basswood and the rail is the micro engineering code 70.
The switching is not finish.


Salut Sami

Une approche particulièrement intéressante!
By coincidence I had lots of thoughts about the tramway tracks and, in particular, about construction of switches in case of redesigning my wheels. Your pictures and the « proto 87 club» site give a lot of answers.
Very cool project!
