I'll be fitting them soon, but first need to run round the house doing Star Wars light sabre impressions until I'm told "GO TO YOUR ROOM AND PLAY WITH YOUR TRAINS!"

Pleasing to know I'm not the only nutter in here  :smiley-laughing:

Hi Steve,

Yes, the bricked up windows are a nice touch.  The moulding looks very good too - and being Japanese presumably to 1:150 scale?

cheers

How do you fit the frilly lampshades to them?  :confused2:

Jedis don't do frilly.  Not even under Walt Disney :no:

How do you know what a Jedi wears under their robes?

Writing this from the Down direction of Marshall Meadows, I can only assume that what is worn under robes is the same as what is worn under a kilt.  I have been asked on many occasions and have an answer ready.

Very interesting lights, though, Steve: an illuminating post.

All the best.

The Table-Top Railway is a train set trying and failing to be a model railway.

I believe that train sets and model railways are fun.

Ben,

Yes, although that may well be just a nominal figure and Iíve no way of telling.  But it looks AOK for itís intended low-relief use and I might end up buying some more :thumbsup:

Still pottering away on the fiddle yard.  This shot shows relatively even lighting now extends almost all along this part of the layout, I just need to measure for a shorter tube to fit at the end off to the right.

More cork is pinned down prior to even more ballasting, track painting is well under way and the layout is slowly submerging under assorted bits'n'bobs.  Needs a tidy!





As I hate cleaning air-brushes, I've had a bash with pigments/powders for weathering this time around.  Not quite there, especially where the 'oil' effect has puddled on the sleepers, but showing promise.  This is a section where locos stand so it would be blacker than elsewhere.

That looks splendid, Steve.

Your ballasting is excellent and I hope to emulate it.

All best wishes.

Post!  Tomytec Building 136 (Warehouse A) for £17.45 plus postage from ebay/PlazaJapan.  (They also do a windowed version as an engine shed which is Building 122-2)

I've bought a couple of these specifically to steal the side walls for low-relief backscene items.  A quick test snap behind a recently chipped Farish 4F shows they're bang on the money for what I had in mind.  I've left the roof off as it's thicker than a nuclear bunker :goggleeyes:


If only I'd known the existence of this shed two days ago!
My depot has been designed to a two road shed.

Anyone got the dimensions and track spacings for this building please? :D
