New 1/24 model

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.

New 1/24 model

Postby gfadvance » Sun Feb 16, 2014 10:59 pm

Evening, still pop in here every week or so even though not done any railway related models for a while.

Thought some of you might like to see my latest road roller attempt in 1/24

Based on a 9 ton Aveling Barford

And my version, in the raw as they say

Painting has started seriously this week-end so will post a couple of shots of the finished beast, hopefully, in a week or so

All the best

I can see you!!!..................

Seriously Gordon - the beastie, it's as good as ever it was, and it was good. Well, it IS good actually - my tenses they are tumultuous!

Gordon ..... here's a tip? If you go to your "photobucket" account and open "linking options" ..... once inside "uncheck - link back to albums" .... and it will stop that bliddy annoying habit of transferring back to your account all the time, and rather just open a larger pic' in the thread if you leftclick over the image.

Just trying to help?

Fantastic work Gordon!
The extra little details just make the model more real before the paint is even applied! 8)

Thanks all for looking.

Andi, ticked every box in Photobucket and remembered to save changes ..... Appears to have had no effect! :?

Ian, thanks but think you have me mixed up with someone else :wink: I do find painting just hard work.

Anyway continuing with paint practice, thought I would start with the scarifier , that bit with two sharp points hanging off right hand rear

Stunning work, had a bit of a double take at the weathering on the scarifier - are you sure that is not a real one?!! Can't wait to see the whole thing finished.

Hi Gordon,

How did you achieve such a realistic paint finish?

The effect is brilliant.
Kind regards,
Mark

Thanks, the effect was done using hairspray method ...... I am sort of hanging on to the coat-tails of experts who have developed these techniques.

Happy to to tell how I did it but suggest you first have a look at the work of guys like John Tolcher, Marc Reusser and Doctor Cranky. Cranky has a lot of YouTube videos on how-to's although he is more inclined to use salt as the resist medium.

If you don't find what you want/need let me know and I will post how I did it and some links
