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 Everyone,I'm new to this computer chatting. I don't know how to post pics of my portable on30 layout. Because I live in a apartment, & don't have room or place for permanent,stand alone layout. I decided to make a aluminum box that measures 4ftx6ft when open & 2ft x 6ft when closed. I'm modeling a fictitious hawaian sugarcane operation.

gentlemen i have a 14 inch tall round stove which has the letters NM&Tco buffalo n\NewYork on the top of its lid I was wondering if this is a stove which would be connected to the railroad in your neck of the woods? the only connection to the letters on the top is the NM&Tco railroad in the Appalacias any thoughts would be appreciated

A neat site...I'm in the process of rebuilding my HO layout...it was dismantled for moving. The SLO&WRR (St. Lawrence, Ontario & Western Railroad) should be up and running again by year's end. Love the pictures...hope to contribute in that area!
