Hi, I'm Kim.


« on: November 30, 2020, 07:48:23 PM »

Morning my fellow fiddlers have started a new topic,-Sandy Hollow- might as well it will incorporate a lot of my recent stuff and forward for hopefully for the next year or so -here goes'
1/35 to 1/32 scale code 100 on 16.5 track about 80 percent scratch using pretty well everything.
Please use the photos for reference. So far the model is 7 pieces this includes the baseboards easy if you want to add or change in the future something that I really like. Across the model is a wooden footbridge the steel ruler is its plan attached to this is working mechanical signals that are attached to the leaver frame no hidden pieces. This section is removable as a lot of stuff happens here and is a joy to build in comfort.
cheers.

Kim,

nearly more than your modeling I like your drawings; ther's a kind of mutual aesthetic within both of them. Would be interesting to see a drawn background with the model.

Cheers,
Volker

Thank you all.
Volker yes drawing is great fast and if you make a mistake no worries I bought a set of cheap markers most colours I don't use the set had about 30 tones but really you could get away with 5.
 Two new pictures.
The signal section has its own baseboard track, a section of the footbridge and the set up for the signal , scale chains cables through small wheels between the signal and lever frame. There is enough weight in the signal to always to return it to stop mechanically. That signal in the photo is an old one I might make a new signal but I want it attached to the footbridge..The last one what the heck it is of an Australian wooden railway trestle but look at the signal post that is one tree hardwood with a strong straight grain.
cheers.

Morning all trusting you are all well.
My little footbridge over the cutting now has one half, to finish there will be a few paint washers and some foliage in the shady parts and at the bottom of the watercourses.I want to build a new signal the one that I posted was too mainline this is a 2-foot narrow gauge so a simpler one would be more appropriate. All wood construction with wire I think I have bondage tendencies I always want to tie up things to finish just one colour that has been diluted about 4 times very easy.
cheers.
