Re: 16T Weathering Experiments

Thanks Robin for the kind words. Bryan, Tim, very useful photo's, particularly the 1958 colour views and thank you for sharing! Something that has really helped my own observations here is not just the colour of the interior, but that on the top edge of the steel wagons! It clearly would've been pai...

Re: 16T Weathering Experiments

Thanks for the feedback Dave. I agree with your observations about the finish of 16T's, the paintwork certainly seemed to be pretty hardy up to the early 60's, rust purely as a result of localised damage would make sense. This definitely changed soon after with general condition declining rapidly so...

Re: Simons workbench industrials. 16t mineral wagon

Simon, I'd incorrectly assumed when I first read Noel's comments that it was indeed the orientation of the body that was incorrect, however as later confirmed the positioning is correct. I was actually hoping it was this that Noel had noticed as theoretically it would probably have been an easy thin...

Re: 16T Weathering Experiments

Thanks Mike, much appreciated! The aim was to encourage people to think "I recon I could do that" and to give it a go. This was the first time I've had a go at anything like this so surely it can only get better from here!? Also to show those stages where it all looks like its going a bit ...

16T Weathering Experiments

After a bit of a nudge from one of our area group members I've bowed into peer pressure and written up my latest modelling for the forum. With much guidance from Peter Johnson of 'Canada Road' and 'Canada Street' fame, I’ve been having a go at weathering a Bachman 16T Dia 1/108. This was initially p...

Re: A few things on my workbench

Very nice Pete! I hadn't noticed the bloater roof until John mentioned it, but I entirely agree with the suggestion and the result IMHO makes a massive difference to the model. Excellent work and well worth the effort. I'm really impressed with the horsebox too! You've really lifted the model away f...

Re: Bachmann B1

A consistent starting point for setting the axleboxes prior to adjustment is certainly key in my mind before going any further. Assuming all the top of the horn guides are consistent across the driving wheels, it may wel...

Re: Are RTR models 'really' that good?

I'm afraid I'm in the camp that in the majority, RTR models are good but they're not great models. The model of 3770 as built by Tom Mallard is far superior in my eye's to anything that any RTR manufacturer has produced to date and the differences are world's apart. The RTR model as judged in the ph...
