Not done anything to the layout since the last update as I've been concentrating on my club's N gauge layout
but I have done some research into pier buildings and have made an executive decision.  :o
I'm going to use a style similar to Cowes West pier on the I.O.W.

http://www.simplonpc.co.uk/Cowes/CowesWestPier-01_b.jpg
Just the entrance style as its typical of the era. I like the octagonal shape and the oriental style roofs! :bounce:
Should be an interesting scratchbuild. Next update should be about the backscene as thats next.

As you say, it'll be an interesting exercise, but will look great. That's a ripper old photo, by the way.

Certainly is!  :thumbsup:
Found it via a link on the piers website I posted in the knowledge section.

Well works started on the backscene!
I had to stop due to all the wet weather producing poor daylight, which I prefer to paint in rather than fluorescent.

Sky first:







Then some countryside:





Detail to do next, then the sea and beach.
I will be posting something special once its all done, no hints, stay tuned!

Also started on the pier buildings. Just the main pier head so far.



Taken on my mobile so not brill quality I'm afraid.  :(



They show the general shape and construction though.
Wood, card and superglue!  :laugh:
I'll take better pics when I've done more.
Thats all for now  :wave:

 :thankyousign:

I've finished!  :claphappy:
The backscene that is... :D





Takes a while to add all the detail.
Finally I painted the road and beach area.



Had to have a ship on the horizon!  :)



Newspaper removed, an 'unveiling' if you like!  :bounce:





I think its turned out pretty well.
May be the odd detail to re-do/add once buildings and things start being added in front of it.
Other than that the backscenes finished.   :thumbsup:

So, whats the special thing I'll be posting?

Well, as I painted this I also had the camcorder rolling!
Once I've done all the editing there will be a 'how to' guide posted in the tutorial section.
Stay tuned...   :tv:  :wave:

NICE! I like the sky & clouds, but those waves are brilliant!  :goggleeyes:
shame though there is no room for a steamer at the pier....
I'll wait for your "how to" before I do my backscene, what paint did you use?

Gerard  :wave:

 :thankyousign: Yes, it is a shame as Artitec do a lovely period paddle steamer that would have been perfect.
But at nearly 9" long it would look silly on a 14" pier! No room for a longer pier though.

I used acrylic paint. I paint in oils too but time was of the essence!

Veeery Nice!!  :admiration:

Is painting another hobby? I shall look forward to the tutorial.

 :thankyousign: Yes, painting is my other hobby.
I don't get to indulge in both as much as I'd like as with no work money is tight but anything is better than nothing as they say!
This is one way of combining the two and I get a backscene that compliments the famous rule no 1.  :thumbsup:

That is fantastic. Looking forward to the tute. You are a true asset to the forum  :thumbsup:

 :thankyousign: I've never been an asset before!  :laugh:
I'm sure you'll like the 'tute'.
Not started on it yet as I'm STILL uploading footage!
The downside of using the highest quality setting I guess...

No, but I do have some white metal seagulls ready to paint for the 'bombing runs' over the pier!   >:D

Finally finished editing and uploading the tutorial.
I thought when filming it I'd have 2 parts about 20 mins each.
Not so! Even edited I've 2 hours of footage!  :o
So there will be 6 parts in total, each covering a different part of the process.
Longest is just over 26 mins, so you won't die of boredom watching it.
(Yeah, I know, like watching paint dry!  :smiley-laughing:)

Not much different to watching lawn bowls.....  :D (Apologies to all the bowlers out there and that includes quite a few of me mates!)

Haven't got round to watching the tutes yet, but I will!  :thumbsup:

I'm sure you'll enjoy the tute's Bealman.

Right, after doing all that backscene stuff I've done a bit of work on the main pier building.
Started on the oriental style roof. Never done one before so its another challenge!



The roof is removable at the moment and will be tiled when finished, probably in slates.

Also made a start on the windows.
There's 8 to do with 16 panes each.
Each pane is drilled out and filed square with a small square needle file.
So that's 32 panes down, 96 to go!  :laugh3:



The double doors each end come from my spares box and are from some ancient Graham Farish building kit.
I think it was the wooden waiting rooms they did. Just happen to have lots of spare doors and windows from them!

As you can see, I have a fair bit of work left to do yet...
