A few bits

Hi Guy's,

Last time I was on my Blog, I promised that there would be a little bit more activity. Sorry this has been so. I have been working on a few projects, but haven't been able to get anything finished. Anyway here is a couple of bit-n-pieces lately.
Greg Riddel invited me up to his place at Kempsey to see the progress he has made on his layout. Greg is really getting that lower NSW north coast line look on his layout that I have nic-named Beyond Yumbunga.


The first 3 photo's in this set have had various degrees of editing done. This Last shot has no real editing other that colour balance and density. Mostly the other shots have had trees added. Greg already has 60 trees on his layout and this doesn't come close to what he needs. At lease I can plant some with my editing program.

My latest purchase from Auscision is very nice. The NSWR JLX/NLJX Louvre Van. I can't really pick any issues with these that stand out so it is a winner as far as I am concerned.


I bought a 4 pack but donated one to another project that I will go into more detail and a later date.

Some of you may remember my very first blog which was about this ILM's NLCX that I had fitted with an OTM's LLV chassis. Well that project had not progressed since that blog and that was mainly due to the reason that I new the NLJX was on Auscision's hit list. Now that it is here, I realised that using the Auscision NLJX Body to make up an NLCX was a far better option. It will be real nice when finish and be up to todays RTR standard in detail.



A couple of weathering projects, Both Auscision products. The NLDF is mostly done but the roof on the WBAX that I painted silver needs work.

I don't usually put my recent rail photography in my Blog. But since my offerings have been lean of late, this sums up my photography for this year thus far.



I usually only get out when there is something a little different running. I miss allot now that I work full time


My little girl turned 4 the other day. Hannah Happy Birthday

  1. I love your WBAX weathering.. May I ask how you achieved this result? I especially like the semi clean "wiped away" look.

  2. Hi Mark, Sorry I haven't checked in on my Blog for a while. As I was using Floquil Paint, well what I have that is left, I sprayed a grimy mix that I made. In the couple of following hours before the paint had time to really set, I used a cotton Bud dipped in Turps to take off any edges. I them did some finer brush work to add some colour back in to take away some of the contrast. Thanks Justin
