Re: Staining help

The fence at the back is made from coffee stirrers and stained with coffee, the bit on the left was then given a wash of Humbrol aluminium very heavily diluted with thinners. Best to start with extremely dilute and add more if required!

Re: Herb's Mechanical

Oh yeah, one of our smarties in GN15 suggested brass vertical pins on the cars and a steel link. Then a little magnet glued to a stick would remove the links and not grab the couplers. That would be great for uncoupling but not much good for putting the links back on! I think I will stick to using ...

1:1 bungalow re-modelling at the moment but still watching the forum daily!

Re: Open/closed forums

I do wonder why any forum feels the need to be closed, as Simon D has pointed out you have to join to post comments, spam or a sales pitch. The secrecy can lead to others thinking that it is something a bit odd or even to be ashamed of and maybe even be seen as a cover for something very unsavoury. ...

Re: Loco couplings pockets

All you need is a simple block to fix the pin in. I have made these from Plastruct strips: http://my.gn15.info/pict1045.jpg I cut to a suitable length and round off the corners. Once the pin is glued in a loose link is used, if the pin is long enough it shouldn't fall off! http://my.gn15.info/pict10...
