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

Hello,
I'm not a member of the forum; just a guy that likes trains and loves good modeling. But I spend more time on this website than any other. I wondered if you'd pass this info on to Dave Revelia. He mentioned in a thread that CHB O scale barrels were 'scarce as hen's teeth'. I ran across this listing on ebay and just wanted to share it.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/O-On3-On30-SierraWest-CHB-Barrels-/290638518577?pt=Model_RR_Trains&hash=item43ab67d931

I hope this helps and Dave, your work is absolutely AWESOME! I can look at it for hours.

Best Regards,
Richard

I invite you all to visit my O Scale 2-rail "Ironbound RR", loosely based on the CNJ in the Ironbound Section of Newark, NJ in the 1950-1960 era. Lots of photos, track plan, etc. See it here:

Hi All

I took the Canadian Railway Conductor course last Spring and during the course I was having some initial problems learning the various railway signals. Being a computer "nerd" I decided to write an app to help me (it helped at lot).

In case you folks are interested in having a look it's at http://www.rcp.ca/mobile

Thanks a bunch
Rob

I am signing in as a guest because I lost all access to the forums due to the recent 10 day loss. Every time I reregister it tells me that my user name and email are already being used and to enter something else. What gives.

I am From New Holland PA. You know a friend of mine Paul Andrisian who lives in Vermont now. He showed me your web site and I love it.
I have been working on american flyer layout on my second floor for 6 years. Ran out of ideas and space looking for new ideas. Like to see your layout sometime.

Thanks for your time
