Re: Back once again!

Some structures are now appearing on the layout. The engine shed will be part of a larger workshop of sorts, which will be low relief in front of the rear part of the loop. The back of the engine shed will be curved to follow the curve of the loop to make it look like it isn't a roundy roundy. I hop...

Re: Back once again!

I was able to get the track sprayed this afternoon.

I used Humbrol Dark Earth acrylic spray.

Re: Back once again!

Afternoon everyone. I have progressed a bit further with this. All the track has been laid, wired and tested. http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff134/robstrachan/G%20Scale%20Micro/IMG_20180308_235854.jpg The next step is to give it all a blast with some muck and then ballasting the lot.

Re: Back once again!

Thank you Chris.

I do have a premium account with Photobucket, but I pay no subscription.

I hadn't really questioned it until now.

Back once again!

Hello all I am back! After a long period away, I have returned to Gn15. I have sold off all my American stock and decided to give the large scale a go again. I have refurbished my critter and started building a open wagon. The layout is 4ft by 18 inches and will use a turntable to save space. http:/...

Tilley Estate Railway

Hi all, I decided that my little green diesel needed a home. http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff134/robstrachan/Gn15.jpg And 24 hours later. http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff134/robstrachan/20150913_051039.jpg There is a steam engine on the go as well.

Re: My first Gn15 experiment

Thanks Gecko. It is a accidental by product of using too much superglue!

I have a new plan regarding this locomotive which will be revealed soon. Currently all my time has been taken up by my HO layout as that is due to be exhibited in October and I have so much to get done!

Re: My first Gn15 experiment

Thanks Doc. The bolts were made by drilling into the card with a 2mm drill bit. Nothing fancy here! Thanks Demaine and Willow Creek. I use fairly thick art card, between 2-3mm thick, so it is pretty sturdy before you paint it, although the black and green paints were silk matt and stiffened it up ev...

Re: My first Gn15 experiment

Thanks doc. I have never built a locomotive out of cardboard, but I frequently build buildings out of cardboard. But here it is. Not to the same design, as it looked far too bulky in cardboard, but I hope you like. http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff134/robstrachan/G%20Scale%20Micro/20150406_17291...

Re: Watts'

I love this layout. I love the sleeper modifications you have made. And the detail you have around the tunnel mouth is stunning.

Re: My first Gn15 experiment

Thanks for the welcome fatmac :) Thanks Chris, I was happy with how quickly it came together, so this evening I knocked up a freelance loco in paper to a design I drew last night, to see if it looked alright. http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff134/robstrachan/Random%20UK/20150402_183437.jpg http:/...

My first Gn15 experiment

So, being new to this scale/gauge combo, and having seen some of the stunning modelling on this site, I decided to try and make a power bogie for my first loco design. Using the motor from a Bachmann 04 chassis I had spare, and the bogie and gearset for a Bachmann Spectrum GP30, I have created a ver...

A newcomer to Gn15

Good evening all, My name's Rob and I am interested in giving Gn15 a go. Phew! Now I've got that off my chest.... I have dabbled in many gauges over the years (N, OO, OO9, HO, O-16.5 and G), and I'm currently happily married to HO, but I am interested in large scale detail in not a lot of space, hen...
