My 1/32 E adventure

Postby Daniel O. Caso » Tue May 14, 2013 6:02 pm

It is not my plan to get into extensive postings about my 1/32 E layout.

E = Elastic because I combine stuff from 9mm to the foot and 1/35 scales and even use elemnts from H0 and N stuff when it helps.

No, I am not serious a bout scale as I am not about prototypes or any other thing except joy.

Sometimes I really enjoy going for the small detail, other times I enjoy to pass from it as there are rainy and Sunny days and both are o.k.

If you have serious (...) interest on my layout the way to go is to join the NGRM Online forum and go through 140 pages full of good and bad photos, errors and every now and then something special.
in that case here the link

http://ngrm-online.com/forums/index.php ... le-layout/

You must registrate to get in but I asure you beyon my own thread there are plenty of really interesting things in both prototype and model fields to see.

You can also see all my photos but without any tekst or explanation at my Flickr:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/daniel_1_32_scale/page311/

In case you do be prepared, there are hundreds of not Railway related photos (of water reflexions) mixed with prototype and model ones.

And in case you also dislike that option here a few photos that I hope you'll enjoy

I am interested in 20" , 18" and 15" railways. specialy the ones related to agriculture. I am also interested in (old) lime stone industry.

Well, that must give an idea of what I am doing in a small space.
It is far from comkpkleted. Actually there is no one building, bridge or what else that has already been completed. Among other things cvolaours and figures will decide how it will be when complete.
I hope to have the layout done by the end of this year and the will start building the locos and rolling stock.

OIf you want to see more and read about how every thing has been done, I sugest you go to the NGRM online. Without the asistance and guidance of the fellows there none of this had been done.

G'day Daniel
I like the design of the baseboard.
Clever design keeps the overall piece of 'furniture' small while giving a reasonable sized 'canvas' to work on.
Oh, and the modelling is pretty good too :D :D

Adrian and Peter

Thank you both for your kind words.

As said there is no one thing really completted yet.
I am working with everything at once and a constant adition of more
So, as you can imagine, the confussion is huge and the chaos total.... !
(Just what I like the most !!!)

Hi Si!

Nice to meet you also here.

Yes, it is quiet different to see such big jumps.
I started with the idea of posting some 10 photos or so but after the first few I saw it would be more than that.
And it was!

Also for me is a little strange to see it in such a synthesis.

This is all superb, really awesome work. The baseboard design is really interesting, thanks for the photos and info!

We're gonna need a little rolling stock...and a lot of luck!

:shock: WOW 8)

I wish this place was real, it looks a great place to visit. Many of the pictures look as if they ARE real, it must be down to the colours.

I notice that some parts of the layout have very grassy track. How do you make sure the grass does not foul up the loco mechanisms? I would like to try doing very grassy track but have never found a way to make it safe for the locos.

Churz,

Thank you for the compliment.
The paint work is just a base until now. Once everything is built, before glueing in place, everything will get it's last touches of paint.
Figures wil;l also decide which spots need to be extra lighted and which ones must receed not to compete with the rest of the scene.


I will answer your grass question with absolute clarity: I have no idea.

Probably what helps a lot is that rarely a loco reach the grassy area. Normaly only wagons.
But at least the Magic Train and the Rivarossi mechanisms have no issues with the grass as it is.
Actually the grass don't touch any moving part. Just almost.

Thank you Albert.

It is almost 50% done. It will take at least until the end of the year to complete but it is real fun.

Today I´ve been doing a little work for the street market. Once everything is in place just the chees post will be clearly seen and the other two will be a bit hiden but anyway I wanted to do them.
AS lot of small detail must come yet.
The chees tent will get two rows of salami ans such things hanging from two transversal cords.

The tent with the fish will get a bucket with water and another with ice.
and the grocfery will get another two crates with green leaves.

But the final detail will co0me once the buildings arround the market will be completed (a lot must still be done on all of them) when the market will be glued in place.

Daniel, thank you for sharing your layout on GnATTERbox. I highly recommend that others read through your postings on NGRM as it is filled with innovative and imaginative building techniques. I especially liked your techniques for carving, painting and building in foam. It is a bit of a slog to read through, but an enjoyable one.

Thank you for your kind words.

But I must be clear at this: most of what I do I have learnt from the big guys as Christopher Payne, Woodie Green, Kim Marsh, Henk Wust and many others.
So you are not dealling with a genius here but simply witgh an honest thieaf.
