Thanks Simon, I'm really enjoying my dabble in 4mm.
The QR code on the packaging looks like the Government QR code stuff that businesses should display for the COVID app.
ah I see.
I’ve had to cut a new batch of Tetbury Engine sheds so I took the opportunity to improve a few bits I wasn’t happy with.
That is pretty damn good detailing on the engine shed. I often feel it is a shame to paint laser cut buildings. Couldn't you use red wood?
I have varnished a building or two with diluted pva. And they look good. I like the idea of doing a full wood building instead of using MDF. Only for another day.
A little bridge that my customer has sent me pictures of now that its painted.
Nice to see the model against the original location for comparison.
The red brick arch is so reminiscent of GWR bridges. Very nice as usual.
Phil - going back to the track bases designed in Templot - how did you add the webbing please?
The webbing are the rails that Templot shows.
Please correct me if I am wrong (wife and sons do frequently)....
Did you offer plier racks / stands once upon a time? And other workbench "nice to have" products?
Please post pikkies here if such delectables are available at this time.
thank you and regards, Graham
Graham, if Phil can't help, have a look at Poppy's Wood Tech, here poppyswoodtech.co.uk (no connection, obv's.... just a customer)
A 4mm kit that I designed and lasercut, built and painted here brilliantly by Dan Evason.
A ugly ducking to some, but a 7mm signal box based in Onibury.
Painted by Nikki Wilkes.
A little commission today of a concrete weighbridge office.
It’s a funny little building as it appears to be concrete construction with a stone pattern scribe in to the cement. It’s also got rounded corners.
And 65 years later..
I’ve made curved walks before but this building is a little tighter on the corners than I’ve done before. So my proof of concept off the laser/modelling bench today,
I think I’ve cracked it, just need to accurately lengthen the brick wrap and fine tune the details.
What is the location and what was the purpose of the weighbridge?
Near Honiton (Teign Valley?) and I’m sure the Weighbridge controlled the dispatch from a local quarry.
Great to see as usual Phil, and an interesting prototype too.
Does the bed mortar course engrave have a pulse setting or is that the material?
I noticed the pulse effect too. Not sure what was going on there. Its impossible to see with the naked eye. I shall investigate.
Masonry bees - you don't get detail like that from other manufacturers!
