At the end of the day its all about what you want out of it. I have a small layout, seen at Expo 08 in Swanley. This is a basic layout with 1 loco in operation. This is controlled by DCC with sound on board the loco. If I wasnt going to use sound I would have gone for simple DC. But now with any gau...

I use an DCC NCE Cab Controller with sound chips in the loco, the sound was recorded and progammed on to the chip from a lister engine.

Jon,

I dont think you have covered it, but would it be possible for you to go in to a little detail on how the ripples on the water were created and what you did with the colours under it
I have now cut out the perspex for my canal and not sure how to create the require effect.

Cheers

How do the Kadee couplers go on going round sharp curves, I assume that the coupler is fixed to the loco and wagon/coach?

I'm wanting to use them on my layout but it has very sharp curves.

Best one I've used (only used one) is the rust powder (fine iron filings) 2 ways to apply Option 1 You paint your model in the final coat, before the paint dries you sprinkle the powder on and leave to dry. When dry, spray with vinegar (rusting agent), it doesn't smell too good, but the results are ...

Looks really well.

I had to build one like it for my small Expo Challenge layout, but only could build half of it due to the width of layout. I sprayed it red oxide at the weekend, but after seeing yours, will be masking it up tonight and spraying the sizes matt black.

Cheers for that, I think im going to use matt black with a sprinkling of rust on the sides and top, (no too over done tho)

But might experiment with using red oxide with black lightly over the top, or the other way round on a test piece first...

Stu,

Im in the same boat (no pun intended :lol: )
I think im going to either

paint the base colours and lots of thin layers of varnish

or

paint the base colours and use a sheet of acetate to create a bit of depth

Not sure yet
