One should never under estimate how useful a small rolling pin can be when modelling railways.
I have a wallpaper seam roller. I'm thinking of wrapping some sort of material around it to provide a texture to the Das whilst rolling it.
There is also this product available which some may know about -
SUPER SET Row paving rollers H0 and H0e by railNscale on Shapeways
I haven't used one personally but it may suffice ?
I have finally started back to the modelling bench after a break of a month.
The ground cover at Bleat Wharf is to be a mixture of surfaces and I have started scribing the DAS to represent setts. Very time consuming but very relaxing.
I will do a section at a time and see what happens..
Neat. thanks. I'm looking for the same sort of finish as Rob @NHY 581 in post #2 as I want something built for the military in WW2.
I'd be interested ; I make a meal of most of my modelling. And I'm good at fudging things, too.
I suspect it would cost considerably less than £34 to bribe one of my colleagues who has one of these new fangled 3D printers. Indeed, I believe he drinks Guiness.
Already posted on the Sheep Chronicles but here is a view of my handiwork thus far........plenty more to go...
Work continues on the cobbles. A repeat of an image on the Sheep Chronicles..
Work ceased on Bleat in November when I had to excavate a significant amount of the ground cover following the failure of a point right in the middle of the plot.
The resulting disaster promoted me to recover what I could from the board and mothball the project.
Various ideas came and went and to all intents and purposes Bleat Wharf was consigned to history.
However, following the notification received regarding the results of the Cameo Competition and confirmation from Simon, I have decided to restart Bleat Wharf.
Mutton, my other entry is complete ( up to a point) and has already been exhibited with more bookings this year.
Time to return to Bleat Wharf. I have changed tack slightly and simplified matters somewhat, moving away from the inlaid track and will aim for a more rustic, "less is more" approach in line with previous layouts.
I hope to have matters sufficently in hand to exhibit Bleat is 12 weeks time.............
More of this...........
Well, a productive day today. A bit more time this evening should see the all the track on the scenic section in place and tested.
Very happy with progress.
The first train has run on the revised Bleat Wharf with a 4F annoying a few ventilated vans.
A pleasant hour was spent playing........ahem..testing and all seems good with just a minor issue regarding the fiddle yard to tweak.
Good recovery Sheepbloke.
I do feel a lot happier with this one.
The brick plinth, by the way, will be the platform onto which the yard crane will be mounted.
The base itself came from Mutton ' s signal box when I cut it down.
Jolly good show, matey!
Looking good - crack on.
Trying not to rush as I don't think I need to.........
Track laying was completed last night and a bit of tinkering conducted around the transition from fiddle yard to scenic section, which was a bit rough. Better now but a bit more work needed.
All running tidy.
No, of course not, whatever would give you that idea?
No, really.............it will be fine...............
