Looks great! Love the weathering. I like the graffiti was well.
Very close to the 1:1 version, great job!
Some development with my T-scale based rolling stock working on narrow gauge module. I got decals and some rolling stock got the markings. I also made workable typical Polish 1Aw type passanger carriage. I had to extennd the lenght of universal chassis for ithis model. I also finished transporter wagoon for normal gauge rolling stock with some details and decals.
I still have a problem with one of my locomotives. It derails on curves... I think the problem is permanently fixed coupler. I am thinking how to make this tiny think flexible.
Excellent work on the narrow gauge! The wagon transporter looks like the ones in the video.
It might be nice to have a module where the standard gauge meets the narrow gauge and you can load the wagons onto the transporter.
T scale on a Z scale layout? That's a first for me! That matchstick really puts the tiny size in perspective. Nice work!
In the past some modellers take the same approach using N gauge or Z gauge tracks and other components to have a narrow gauge on the layout.
The railway station (previous page) needs a small module. I started with ballasting:
Platforms are MBZ laser cut products:
Platforms were weathered:
I started withe the green areas and prepared the road.
Grass and moss almost finished. It is time to start with bushes and trees...
There is a small detail - foundation of demolished building. It existed in reality on this station.
Little details like that old foundation brings your work to life. Bravo!
There are some bushes and the building is already placed on the module. There is still a lot to be done with trees and some more details...
Your module is looking great!
I like the overgrown foundation, and how you create plants growing in the cracks, is a nice touch!
That is a beautiful looking building. Graffiti and all. I like the small details. The screens over a couple of windows. The railing covering the arched doorway. Well done, as usual. Thanks for the update. Jim
I think that the moment of adding trees and bushes is the moment in which one can get and see very fast progress. So let's add the trees !
Spruce trees are made by Polish small company FREON. The other trees but one I had to made by myself. I used relatively easy and fast technique.
I use NOCH Naturbaume 23100 (dried pigweed) as a starting point. It is spray painted brown and dark green (Tamiya spray paints) then the spray glue is applied (Microrama MagicSpray). Different types of foliage is used to get different colours and textures (Noch leafs, some other materials). Finally to fix everything and make the tree more durable it is again spray painted with Tamiya colorless Flat Clear TS-80.
Arrangement of trees was made based on old photos and some "field" research with help of Google Maps StreetView. The general setting looks like this:
Some more detailed photos:
It is time to work on details on the platform and to add some life - maybe 2-3 Preiser people - this is not very crowded place...
Trees make all the difference, looks fantastic!
Beautiful!! Well done!
Excellent work! What are the angular, gray pieces with the black and white boxes on the end sitting in the weeds?
I was just going to ask this same question.
Could you point on the photo what you are asking about please !
