Kidmore Vale Update
« on: August 03, 2011, 05:11:59 PM »
Attached photos represent July's progress on Kidmore Vale.  The month saw the addition of the short terrace of houses at the back of the layout & the livestock yard; the latter represents the major industry for this layout.  Still to go, before application of detail scenics, are both the addition of a scrapyard (once the stream is finished as this will divide the LH hill from that yard, & the station building / platform etc..  A revamped Lyddle End goods shed is also in progress with a GWR colour scheme & interior detail.  Further pictures of layouts in the Kidmore series may be seen at kidmorengauge.weebly.com

It is anticipated that Kidmore Vale will be ready for the Berkshire Group of the N Gauge Society's exhibition at the end of March 2012.

I particularly like the 'ominous' sky colour at the RHS - it really sets the layout off. Not wishing to offend anyone but how often do we see clear blue skies in the UK, or bright blue skies with lovely white clouds? I have already decided my backscene will be various shades of grey - from dark to light.
If I could model pi**ing rain I'd do that too with a 'wet look' to roofs etc. I'm afraid most of my steam memories are of filthy locos dripping rain - sorry!

Very inspiring work, Noctilux 2.
Was there ever a Noctilux 1?

Looking very good Noctilux2.  I particularly like the fencing you've made.  I also have the same 'Pillbox' on my layout.  :D  Excellent taste you have!

Actually somebody beat me to it !  The name will be well understood by Leicaphiles.  Sorry, Ddolfelin, forgot to give you a mention...apologies.

Nice looking layout - I like the rust painted rails.
I presume by the neat job you've made of it, you do this before ballasting.
Two rails good. Three better.

Nope, I ballast first & then do sleeper & rail pinting.
