Chris, your layout really caught my attention, great job. A regular Malcolm Furlow Jr, only yours probably actually works.

Howdy Folks,

A little bit of new stuff going on:


I cobblestoned the drive and added some stairs to the slope with DAS clay. I also replaced the plastic station platform with a longer wooden one. The rock castings a glued in place and ready to be coloured. track painting, ballast and ground cover next!

Did a couple of hours work on the layout this weekend, applied some sculptamold and a bit of vegetation to the ridge running down the centre of the layout. I mixed some colour into the water that I used to mix the scultamold to see if it would give some earth tones and save painting it later, worked quite well.

Here's some photo's

This is the trestle and oar loading shute








Cheers Dave

Hi gang, any progress?

Dave and Cody I like your last pictures.

I pulled out an old 16x32" micro I build on a cork board and started messing with the content.

You all deserve "thumbs up"!
Cramming a lot of interest in such a small place
is hard to do.
Not my forte, but I like following along.

Good looking progress Gents, and am looking forward to more.

I've been adding lots of rock castings, dirt, ballast and got the track painted (with my airbrush for the first time, worked very well!). Since all my ground cover materials are not really the colours I'm looking for I'm planning to get it all glued down then start colouring it with washes. I've seen military diorama makers spray an entire diorama flat black and start the colouring from scratch. I doubt I'll go that far but I want to have a uniform look to the scenery. I'll post some photos when it starts to look like something.

G'day All

I needed some form of locomotion for the ore wagons that will be traversing the trestle to the dump shute on my micro layout, see previous post.

As I had nothing I thought suitable I decided to start from scratch on something that I was going to build in the future for another layout.

Anyway had a scratch through the junk box and came up with these parts, tractor is a Fordson, wouldn't have a clue what the bogie is off, but it has pickups which I need for the future project.




Put them together with stripwood, glue, homemade corrigated iron made from a Coke can, after throwing out the Coke and a fertile imagination.







Hope you like it, totally freelance. Still needs a couple of finishing touches but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.


Cheers Dave
