Holbrook Moor

First off, the wall looks great, can't wait to see finished layout. I find a small brass brush or a good tooth brush handy when carving DAS modelling clay. It helps to clear the mortar lines & gives the bricks / stones a bit of texture. The IVY that i used on Moulding Lane came from Green Scenes...

As Steve says I would not blow my own trumpet, I was very surprised to win, but now a week on I feel highly honoured not just for myself, but also for ALL you chaps out there who model in Gn15 as well, because my work cannot be compared to some of yours. Thanks once again for the kind comments. Kind...

The couplers i use are the Bemo 4mm ones with a piece of soft iron wire soldered to one of the down legs, magnets are placed in the track bed at convenient spots, i always set the magnets using the longest wagon to be used, leaving enough space between the magnet and buffer stop/ next wagon so that ...

Making a start

With regards to the lighting rig, I used a ajustable mop handle [one of those you can extend ], cut off the mop holding part,but left the swivel part. I then bent a right angle on a piece of ali flat bar, long enough to drill a 6mm hole to fix this to the mop handle. A 6mm hole was also drilled at t...

If you look at the last photo Steve put on, the archway in the building was made so a loco could go through. I was going to use this for the exit, but after seeing Timmer Bricks & Pipes by Otto Schouwstra at Expo 2003, I decided they would look too much alike. This is still a good way to exit a ...

One thing I have forgotten to say, for brickwork I use the Terracota DAS and for stonework, I use the grey DAS. If you want to model rendering with either brick or stone showing through put a dab of DAS in the place you want it, let it go off, scribe it, then make up a mix of PVA glue and ready mixe...

Thanks Steve for the pictures, something else I have got to do now, is write this! The brickwork is DAS that has been scribed using dental tools from Squires tools. Also I used a small brass wire brush similar to a suede brush. Every time you do a little bit brush it along the horizontal mortar line...

The figures on somerset Cider are Preiser and SLM, and not altered but repainted. As you can tell I am happier with a craft knife than with the computer, but I will get there eventually.
