Bret's Brewery
Posted by Graffen On 07/09/2018 At 8:12:02 PM
I've started on the Bret's brewery kit from Campbell in HO.



Content of the kit.





Some of the tools I use.





I started by measuring the parts and identifying them with the numbers from the manual.





I add woodgrain with a wire brush.





I cut out the windows with a xacto chisel blade, then I stained the areas which were to be glued together.





I add nail holes with a Trumpeter rivet wheel.





As you see, the wall lines up on the right side and the left is offset.





After staining the walls with india ink and alcohol, I paint the peeled off paint.

I use turps on a brush and while the surface is wet, I apply the acrylic paint which then pearls up in places to look like peeled off paint when dry.





I used a light grey green paint.





Painted walls.





The trim was painted green.





I glued the walls together.

















The floor is glued in place. I added a hole for the stairwell.





Support beams under the floor.



This is as far as I have gotten now.
The Dinky Creek bridge

Recent build.


Sorry, no construction images. My memory card did not want to find them....
Wood structure kit from Scale Structures limited.
The Dinky Creek bridge in HOn3.
All rivets and fittings are in metal .... Painting all the metal parts and drilling holes for 600+ NBWs is a bit of therapy.

Hi All:

Need opinion on this color.

This was don via George's Incstuctions.

1) Apply Floquil Grime as a stain by dipping back and forth between paint and thinner. Let dry well.

2Apply Floquil Foundation by the same method over top of the grime.

3) Apply light A&I stains.

Other uses for Campbell shingles?
Posted by ocalicreek On 06/18/2018 At 8:58:25 PM
This may sound like heresy around here, but ,I really don't care for Campbell shingles.

Have any of you clever folks (or anyone else) come up with any other uses for them?

More New Construction on the F&SM RR
Posted by halrey On 06/11/2018 At 2:05:01 PM
I stopped by George's last week and found many new changes.
George is having a great time replacing and updating structures all over the layout, most of these photos are in the Dover Town area, however the last four shots are below the trestle.
I have a few more I will post later...

Hal

Most interesting site, I shall, when my web site comes back on line to place a link to here.

Since 1983 I have sold many kits to many satified cusomters, however due to the tough economic times and the deluge of modeling equipment dumped onto the modeling market, most customers cannot make up their mind as what to buy and purchase nothing.

Remember when, Mr. Athearn and his company would announce a new car type about once each year. The new car would be manufactured in ten road names and priced within the means of common modelers.

Now everybody in the marketplace is scrambling to put out as much and more than the buying public can swallow. Note as well the great number of model railroad stores simply throwing in the towel and exiting the business as too highly competitive and or too much to keep in their modest inventory.

Worse, is the way companies do business, buying a lump trailer full of trains and once sold or out of parts to maintain them, they say to the customer, "That's Tough!"

My business too feels the crunch, and mattering on this year's sales figures will make our mind as to remaining in business or slipping from sight.

This is the second or third time I've visited the site. Its very good and I've enjoyed reading through many of the posts. Unfortunately I do NOT have high speed internet at home, so don't spend alot of time (1/2 of the week) on the net. When I am down near work I do.
I am building the Cascade Div GN prototype in HO scale between Skykomish and Appleyard (Wenatchee) Wa. Time stopped in the fall of 1953.
Thanks again for the site.

I need information on a Tortoise switch machine. The switch runs on DC current. Can I also attach AC current for the frog?

Greetings from Germany to the N-Gauge fans in U.S.:

Administrative Edit: the attached photo had to be deleted because of file size restrictions and complications with home page/Guestbook spacing.

Photo shows "modified" Arnold BR 95 in 1:160 which is surely 20 years old.
