A layout in Gn15 for Railexpo(2012).

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

A layout in Gn15 for Railexpo(2012).

Postby rocamadour » Sun Jan 06, 2013 5:27 pm

Hello,
I am a new modeller in Gn15.
Before I also practise the scale(ladder) N and On30, I begin Gn15 since September, 2012.
The layout appeals to a box of wooden Brie Region(Cheese) which is filled by a circle of extruded polystyrene.
Image
The second floor of polystyrene allows to create a negative relief.
Image
The space is filled by a wooden bridge(deck) of complete construction (tray of Rocamadour and peak with brochettes(bunches)).
Image
Detail of the bridge(deck).
Image
To be continued.

Hi Alain,

Welcome to the group.
You are off to a great start with that bridge.

And something different from the usual 'pizza' layout - now we have a 'cheese' layout. Wallace and Gromit would be right at home! :lol:

G'day Alain
Welcome to the group.
Good start for your little layout.

Do you realise that if you can find a pizza box that it can fit in and you put a bit of snow on the layout, it will be suitable contender for the new snowflake challenge ?

Just a thought.

Cheers

Bonjour Alain,

seems we are attracting more attention from modelers in France. Maybe its the October challenge, but the Snowflake one would be a good start. Do seem to remember a cheese box being used for one layout a couple of years ago.

I took this picture of a train in a cheesebox 2007 at Railexpo near Paris

I can not remember having ever seen a Gn15 Layout in a Cheesebox So Alain´s start looks very promising.

Have Fun

The continuation of the construction.
The ground is painted in chestnut.
Image
The way arises from the business(trade), sees Peco code 75 welded for the mechanical holding(dress) and the food(supply) electrical.
Image
The plastic crossbars of the way of origin are replaced by wooden crossbars (tray) beforehand painted and are stuck on the cyanolite
Image
The way ready(in position) receives its "spikes" made in hooks(staples) recut and placed one by one.
Image
The way definitively ready(in position), the bridge(deck) painted in grey received metallic wall lamps to hold the way ( plasticarte ) and the set(group) is painted in color make rusty(rust

To be continued.

G'day Alain

I like the way that you are going with your build.

The track and bridge look perfect.

Rustic but workable.

Good work

En reality, the network was built between September and November, 2012 to be presented to Railexpo at the end of November. I make simply the report on the site to describe my way of making.

So it turns out that I happened to be correct! :lol:


I love the loco, and parts you have used to make it. Especially the electrical resistor for the exhaust muffler. 8)

I think I recognize that grill on the end opposite the radiator. Is that from a 1:35 scale model kit of the German A7V tank?
