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...

Hi, I hope someone can provide me with some information on an HO model kit I recently found. It is made by S&E Suzuki & Edwards out of Tokyo. It is a metal die cast stock car. I am told this kit came out right after WWII, which would make it 50 to 60 years old or more. Does anyone out there have any info on this maker or familiar with them? This kit has all its parts and I am just curious if there is a small marker out there that might be interested in such an item, and how much it might be worth to those select few. Thank you

I have known about the L&W since I was a kid in Thomson. The EMD loco is an ex Ga & Fl RR unit #70. It was one of thier originals. There is a blue L&W boxcar parked in the wye with the loco. It has been there about a year. I was in Folkston a few days ago and spotted an L&W box in the consist of a passing CSX train. I drove to Wadley and nothing had changed in the wye. Upon leaving and heading north to Thomson, I caught sight of some boxcars sitting on the L&W main. I followed the tracks to an abandoned junk yard and there sat 4-5 Pickens RR box cars. There were trees growing up around the trucks. They all had roller bearings mounted in the old friction bearing journal boxes. I don't think thats legal now.

I'm new to the group. I live in Ottawa, Canada, and I model in HO. I'm in the process of completing my layout, and hope to begin operating sessions early in the new year.
