Hi Steve,
I thought it might be. I've been told I need one of myself for Barrow Road but a younger version.

Great video Geraint. Obbekaer has come a long way since you started on the buildings - when was it that I first saw them? at the Watford show in the mid 90's with Middlepeak?

Best wishes

Re: Solder paint

I have to agree with John. I have used Carr's No Clean Solder for a long time. The brasswork roof on Barrow Road Shed was assembled using it and an RSU. I have also used it on riveted track using a soldering iron.

Re: Spraying Lifecolor

"I've used Lifecolor acrylics through the airbrush fairly often, their rust/dirt weathering shades are very good."
Alastairr, I am looking to give some of my locos a light weathering. Do you have the colours/reference numbers for the appropriate Lifecolor range?
