Looks like he needs that cup of tea :D (and a bath!). gives him avery different look with that head, maybe I'll change the moulds to leave the head separate :wink: The trammer looks great, some nicely modelled details 8)

On my garden shed, the felt roof is held down with galvanised nails. Maybe track pins cut to length and pushed through?

Definately worthy of a magazine article :lol: I e-mailed a couple of pictures of 'Arthur Crumbs' (my card challenge layout) to Model Rail magazine and they put them in this months' letters page (yes, Gn15 in Model Rail!). They sent me a cheque for £25 too! 8)

I am using corrugated card from Hobby Craft called 'Corduroy', which is flat on the back and bends quite well without buckling ... http://i137.photobucket.com/albums/q220/Milnerpics/forum%20pics/layout%202/IMG_2337.jpg For info on Nissen Huts including drawings: http://www.nissens.co.uk/text.htm

I don't normal read this section - not really my thang but I did start making a figure some time ago for a ride on type driver. But you guys seem pretty good at altering figures so I didn't think there would be much of a market. This is how far I got http://i137.photobucket.com/albums/q220/Milnerpic...

Looking good Nick, as you say, photos are very unforgiving. The only problem I have had with the green stuff is that it is difficult to see the details(or imperfections) as it's so dark, the primer helps (or hinders :twisted: )

I think a big part of the pricing is the usual for most things in this country (MP's paying their families from our taxes, political correctness gone mad, an unelected Prime Minister etc etc) WE LET THEM GET AWAY WITH IT :shock: I agree with the comments on here and have also bought from the U.S. bu...

I've just bought Green stuff from Tiranti where I get my resin from. 90cm for £7.86 plus postage, better than Games Workshop! (Not telling what I want it for :wink: )

Nice photos Gerry but I can't see any clay works in them :wink: Maybe Carlo is making a model of the mid-Italian clayworks built by a British ex-pat who felt homesick so had some bricks shipped over :D . Nice modelling Carlo!

I like the Model Power Porter Hustler. Got mine from Shrewsbury but thought the wheelbase a little long so sliced a section out of the middle. At under a tenner I didn't mind. Don't go dizzy but this is one running :wink: http://i137.photobucket.com/albums/q220/Milnerpics/forum%20pics/th_P1010043.jp...

Steve, I'm sure everyone appreciates that you are merely trying to get the best exposure for Tom (and the rest of us :D ) in what is a limited market. I (like others I'm sure) love this forum because of the willingness of others to accept a huge variation in modelling interests based around the Gn15...

Those are fantastic locos Tom and your painting and weathering of the first one is just amazing. I can understand Steve's comments about them not being the usual loco for Gn15, even as a relative newcomer myself. Then again, as a commercial modeller, where else can you get as much exposure? As for t...

I'm glad there seems to be a concensus and that layouts are underway :D I didn't mean to sound negative but I hoped the yearly challenge would encourage us to try something we would not ordinarily do, as using card did last year. Unfortunately, as some have layouts already on the go which they are g...
