Re: Steampunk anyone?

All that dressing up seems a bit ‘out there’ and attention seeking. However, each to their own and if it gets more people interested in the hobby then it’s a good thing. They may then move to the more traditional side of the hobby.

Re: Steampunk anyone?

It’s a bit like rap ‘music’ - I just don’t get it. Must be my age or something.

No, my wife’s Year 2 class haven’t turned into railway modellers - it’s all my own mess!

I’m assuming dark satanic mills will be your choice of layout!😁

A bit more work - had a go at weathering my granite setts followed by a very light black wash. I think it’s come out ok.

Re: Kev,s occasional offerings..

A lovely little cameo - well done. What a great way for someone to dip a toe into the hobby before committing to something larger. A great advert for what we do in our spare time. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Any tips for making holes for track pins?

I prefer Brian’s method. Think I’ll nick it next time and miss out the glue which on balance was just an unnecessary stage.
