amazing effort

It's amazing what detail can be popped into such a seemingly simple layout!

I keep going back and back - looking at the details! Sterling effort all round! (no pun intended!!)

Hi guys . . . I have been watching steve's efforts to date, and must confess I always marvel at the quality of his work !! :idea: In terms of the paint Steve uses, we have a Dulux product out here in Australia called Tuscan Effects . . . It's a thick exterior paint with suspended said particles. I h...

Simply lovely!

This is the kind of highly detailed modelling that inspires us all to do just that little bit beter.

And you know what? Despite the fact there are rivets aplenty here . . . Who's counting!

Stunning stuff! :D

Have a go, Steve!

Have a go at putting this critter together, Steve . . . It's a load of fun - and looks the part ! Although Jim Favre is an American (we can forgive him this!), he has managed to impart a particularly Australian feel . . . specially to the 'cab' !!

Thanks, Steve, for yr help too on the skip issue. Not sure the Thomas York examples aren't TOO big for my requirements. I may find the GL examples a better fit . . . especially when used with the side tippers!

Thanks Ian!

Thanks for the image of these skips available for sale . . . obviously here here in Australia!

Ironically, I have a small number of these wooden 'boxes' - but not the trucks. Not quite what I had in mind . . . but yr post has given me more food for thought!

Tail-chasing philosophy

I've always liked tail chasers . . . and failed to see why I couldn't achieve the same thing in Gn15. Trains will run behind a yet-to-be-built hill/mountain on the left-hand side of the layout as you see it here. They will then appear from a cutting in this hill/mountain, and run along the front of ...

Pete Heininger's basic layout - sans scenery!

Here folks is the basis of my soon-to-start Gn15 micro layout. She's 4ft long by 2ft wide . . . and while she looks shgabby at this stage, she will deliver the goods !!

Preiser problems

Not only are the Preiser figures expensive, they're also brittle! Having paid $A14 for a driver, I managed (quite easily) to accidentally snap one of his hands off when I got him home and onto the work bench!

Tunnel-grown Lilyvale Mushrooms

Whenever I've seem a mushroom faerming operation, I can't help but sense the patience . . . . These tasty little critters grow patiently in the quiet dark stillness that befits their nature. Not sure what happens up in the northern hemisphere, but many Australian farms were set up in disused railway...

Thanks for the Lilyvale Mushrooms plug!

Thanks, Steve, for the Lilyvale Mushrooms plug! :D :D :D Seriously, though, the 1:12 boxes may be good for long-distance, supermarket shipping . . . but they appear to be way over-scale compared with the 1:24s. I still have all the boxes to make up . . . but they are packed away, ready for our move ...
