Re: How does one make a decent hedge row in OO?

The hedge DIY was very useful. Coconut fiber looks
excellent. Layering of textures very clever.

Re: A blind date with an electric...

The Continental is a beautiful piece. That it is under catenary is splendid.

Good Bye to Steam

Not much of a plot line in this one, and longer than I usually make them. I was experimenting with different camera angles. To this end, much duct tape was used. Also, I was trying to get a grip on this Windows 10. The chaps think they reinvented the wheel, they just made it more annoying and diffic...

How does one make a decent hedge row in OO?

A search on the Forum didn't turn anything up. I want to recreate a bit of this iconic view of rural Britain. I recall seeing much the same whilst taking my lunch upon a dining coach in about '67. Even as a lad of 6, the beauty of the view was not lost upon me. Roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, I re...

Modern Trains to Henley

Sorry for double posting, but I got this Triang EM Electra going, and am rather eager to share the result. It did yeoman's work for this video, and got quite warm, did not falter. I did not know that it went into production in 1937 and lasted well into 1950's before being sold to the Netherlands. So...

Modern Trains to Henley

Thank you for that, Hunslet, most interesting link.

Henley joins the electric network, with this 77, in this video shot today. Try to catch the
visual pun at the last scene, if you have not fallen asleep.

Putting in my line side fencing.

A rather novel concept for myself, as in the US this is not done. If a cow, or a sheep, or whatever, meanders upon the line, they are consequently turned into hamburger or minced mutton, or whateverburger, I was to see. One of my first patients was a chap who had been run over by a shunting locomoti...

Image

Finally switched her on, and she runs quietly, smoothly, beautiful! I am having some difficulty locating the prototype
image under "EM," "Electra," or both. Are the Blood and Custard coaches generally appropriate?

Re: Cardstock Canals Question

Card stock is a new medium for me, and is hardly present in the American scene. This Scalescene stuff was surprisingly good to work with, the real trick is cutting straight edges. A metal straight edge and a grid table might get me even better results. What many UK modelers have achieved in card sto...
