No i don't actually. I'll have to see it again. I last saw it over 11 years ago.
Farout bro. That thing puts the one at HobbiesCo to absolute shame. This thing is a mini network itself complete with its own village. Goodness knows how may square metres that thing is. I sure as heck hope he owns that house it's in and doesn't rent it lol.
Quick update: we have added more to the mountain seen in the photos using expanding foam and will paint it once it drys.
You got a hobby airbrush?
Yeah we do. The expanding foam is pain to clean from the track though.
Way to go, guys. Until you start a layout like this, you cannot appreciate the amount of work that goes into it - much of which is hidden beneath the board.
Not sure where you live, but there is the big model railway show at the Whitlam Centre, Liverpool on the October Long Weekend. Lots of stuff for sale and people who can give great advice on modelling.
This is an older picture of my existing layout. I'm working on a new one, and will post as it develops.
is that real gravel you got under the tracks?
Thank you very much mate. I always go to the Liverpool exhibition every year with my father. I enjoy seeing the layouts. Also are you going to the exhibition this year?
That's impressive mate. I love the detail. Especially the ballest/gravel and all the trees and buildings.
Here are some more photos of the mountain range we made from expanding foam.
Dad and i have just painted the mountain. Here are some more photos
Looking good mate well done to you and your old man
Thank you very much man. Appreciate it. We put masking tape on the track as so not to get paint on it. But paint did end up getting on a curve and some masking tape pulled out a bit of nickel from the track. So we have to buy some end tracks . But other then that My dad and I are happy with how the mountain turned out.
Yep, Chuck's Ballast sell various styles of gravel for layouts. You can buy it through most hobby shops or at the model train shows.
Yes, I'll be there on the ARHS stand. Come and say hello.
A track rubber, or a bit of cork soaked in Isopropyl will clean rails of paint and crud quite safely.
Your layout is looking good.
