Build a structure - Kathy Millatt - Treadwell and Ware

Well, I haven't modelled anything serious since my last AP stuff in April so this is just the kick up the back side that I need. I have decided to do one of the dioramas that will slot into my layout. My layout is in my loft and to leverage more space, a friend suggested that I build multiple dioram...

Help needed - Branchline figures

Hi all

One of my American friends is looking for any help with Branchline figures. Do they still exist?

What was your early inspiration?

I started modelling with my Dad's train set when I was younger and I remember he had a couple of Railway Modellers. One included a slate mine and the other a pool of water with a rusty wheel in it. They were very inspirational at the time so recently I found the slate mine and bought a copy of the m...

Re: PanPastel

I have been tempted to try Pan Pastels after seeing them used in Modelling with the Masters over styrene to recreate weathered wood. They looked excellent. The price is a bit high though so I’ve been putting it off. On Saturday, I went to a Craft Show with my Mum and one stand had a sale price of £4...

Re: Cleveland Convention 2014

Thanks Brian

I have never eaten so much or spent so much money on food! I was glad to get back to the UK for reasonable sized portions and less salt.

I do love American food but I'm glad I don't live there or I would be hippo sized!

Cleveland Convention 2014

I realise that I posted in my blog and Facebook about my trip to Portland, Maine and then on to Cleveland for the National Convention but did not add anything in here. The first few days were a restful trip with 3 train trips in as many days but the Convention was a whirlwind. Being a Director fills...

Re: On30 Modular Standard

Koos I did not adopt the German Fremo On30 standard as it did not have centred track which seems to me to negate the advantages of Fremo. Other than that, the boards are a little deeper to allow for tortoise motors or other low hanging switch motors and the fascia colour which I set as black rather ...

Re: On30 Modular Standard

Hi All

I was just asked for our FremOn30 standards so thought I had better post the link here.

I have no idea how to load a file so the standards are on my website: http://www.kathymillatt.co.uk/Projects/ ... _Final.pdf

Re: Modules v Boards

Thanks all A lot of food for thought. Mike said that a track an might help so my original plan is on my website here: http://www.kathymillatt.co.uk/FremOn30_2.htm It's quite complicated and does end up with the outer tracks ending at a baseboard edge at either end with no corresponding tracks on the...

Re: Handlaid Track

Mike I have handlaid twice and struggled the first time - so much so that I ended up drilling the holes. The subroadbed was some kind of sound deadening very dense board stuff. The second time was a cinch as the subroadbed was foam. I used Xuron spiking pliers. I got my ties from the States - Kapple...
