Hi All

Just thought I'd share a few photos from last night.
Finally finished the 1:48 lobster traps and about to start on the 1:87 traps.
A very time consuming , but very relaxing and in no hurry to finish any projects.

I have been in the garage working on the new modules, and occassions, I try and sit down on occassions to work on my internal details for some of the future structures.








regards

Mario

For sure an impressive amount of details ready to use.
I'm looking forward to seeing them when you've used them.

As you think, so will you be.

G'day Rick....
Details has become another hobby for me lately and enjoy just looking at them. Seems a waste to hide them away in a structure

I heard from Bud this morning... he's looking forward to catching up with you in St Louis

cheers mate

I still need to pay for my admission to the show, but the rest of the plans have already been made.
It will be good seeing Bud again. [:-thumbu]

As you think, so will you be.

Looking nice Mario!

What's the deal with the aluminum frame on the Sweetwater section? Is it something custom built? It caught my eye browsing around.

Mario,
Very impressive detailing you've got going there. Would you share how you blackened the tools with us? It looks as though you did it in bulk. I also have some tools to weather and would love to hear how you did it.
Thanks,
[:-glasses]

I try and use aluminium framing for my projects.
I do a cardstock layout mockup then workout the cutting lengths. This them comes bundled from the supplier. All modules take only a few minutes to construct.

I had a few hundred detailed parts [:-hot] I needed to weather, so I tried something different

Using alchol and ink I created a large bath solution.

Then added some black & brown fine powders to the details. Mixed them all up ( threw in any white metal details, resin castings, etc.)

All this was placed into the bath solution.

Each day I'd pull out some details, not all...
this gave me some variation in colour and texture.

It was an experiment that work for me. I only did it because it saved time on so many items of all types of sizes and shapes.
For small runs you can use the "traditional" methods...

I forget to mention that the left over combined of diluted powders and solution is then used for staining timber.
Some very interesting colours and textures are produced.

Always trying to do something different than the usual.

WARNING !!!!! NOT all my experiments work. [:-banghead]

Here is an example of the washes on timber for a dis-used rolling stock structure.

I wish I had only "Half" of what I collected in details. [:-crazy]. That's what happens when you rubber gauge. Many of the shelving 1:48 scale is made up of 1:87 parts. Perfect.....
but I have been getting rid of 100's of HO surplus details on Ebay recently..... no need for them these days....[:-weepn].

I received my Sierra West machine shop yesterday, so that will keep me busy in details for "Dundas Point".

It's a jugling act at the moment with what I keep...[:-jester] [:-idea]

Great casting work, fantastic looking details. There is a lesson to be learned there.

Your random picking method for getting different weatherings on so many castings looks interesting, Mario. How did you manage the "random" aspect?
