Re: Bilco's Bodgements #3

Remember it’s just a base layer - I’ve been in the same place so many times and there’s nothing that, dry brushing, powders, or just flat out starting a fresh can’t fix...as you say, hours of fun :)

Wanted - Sidelines Gn15 ‘kits ‘n’bits’

I’ve recently felt a pull back to the scale after a period of...distraction I guess is the best word. I formally modelled in Gnine, but I gave my collection away to a friends son who was getting into the scale in 2017 when I moved to Wales - this means I get a fresh start in Gn15 (after intending to...

‘Oh I’ll just pop on the gnatterbox for ok’d times sake there won’t be anything on there to pull me in’

Goodness sake Bill. Cracking work as ever! I must say Gn15 is as tempting to me as it was when I was modelling in Gnine!

Oh crikey if MOMING was that close I'd be in a pickle! Relax Bill you've got some time yet - I'm already looking forward to the next Pewsey show, it's usually my favorite to attend!

Thank you both for your encouragement, it'll be a nice break from straining at 009 for a bit :)

Re: Father and Son Gnine Project

It's been a while, eh! :mrgreen: Well the layout survived a couple of shows, but unfortunately the track work gave up afterwards, it just wasn't built that well, and since the lad has all but lost interest anyway, I decided to strip the board a little while ago and focus on my 009 layout. So sadly t...

Re: Watts'

Good luck with the sale, Bill. I've think you'll increase your chances of success using the trade section on gnatterbox and for sale section on NGRM, shame it has to go but if it leads to something new I'm all for it!

Re: Father and Son Gnine Project

Yes, the material comes dried in a box - some modellers dip theirs into a mix of water and matte medium to make them more durable, and there are products available that you can brush on to them to get the same effect...I sprayed mine with watered down white glue and they seem to be fine (so far) but...

Love that little green diesel! Card is such a great medium to work in, I was a little afraid to at first, but it's actually quite solid when you get into it don't you think?

Blimey...it's been a while. Little has changed since the last post, other than we had to get the track up and re-laid as things started to fall off thanks to gaps appearing in the track, shunting was also a challenge on the reverse-curve so we have simplified the layout significantly. https://nookyw...
