    February has arrived, so it is time to shut this month's Gallery down and start up a new theme.

    Many thanks to all who contributed photos and/or comments to this month's Gallery.

    This is a "teaser" photo that Nick Ogden posted on the Forum back in 2004.

    That's baking soda sprinkled on wet acrylic paint, then washed with various acrylic washes. The problem: over time the white soda tends to bleed back through in places. I've had to re-wash some of it, sometimes several times.

    This is my favourite structure on his layout. There's even a padlock on the door.

    Rob, I don't remember who did the boxcar, but I think it might of been Dave.

    Some more from Richard Grinyer. This was additional work he did to expand the scene of that earlier 1/24 scale work on page 4.
    So this was quite a large diorama

    Thanks Karl. The prototype type XXIII subs are only a small coastal sub. The one I did was only 9.5" long
    Full build here. I really enjoyed the research I did for that model. https://railroad-line.com/node/40031

    The one at model expo was quiet a large model, from memory, about 1m long so probably the Bronco models 1/35 version.

    The Arnie bust may have had a LED, but may have just been turned off. I have seen other ones with a LED eye. Certainly superb painting.

    Just amazing wood weathering Karl.. I'm surprised your town zoning department hasn't condemned it for occupancy yet!.

    Now thats some great looking rust efects, on both of the sub models.
    The Arnie bust is great but really needs a red LED on the eye to finish it off.
    Some great and enjoyable modelling to see.
