Fine Art Techniques - Pastels & Inks with Underpai
Posted by hon3_rr On 01/13/2018 At 7:27:56 PM
Fine Art Techniques - Pastels & Inks with Underpainting on Basswood

Where to start… To begin with I have been doing a lot of research and consideration/testing of ideas, materials and techniques found in the Fine Art World over the past 9 months or so. I have been contemplating how to apply some of the ideas and mediums to our hobby. These efforts have been in in lieu of actual modeling bench time due to physical discomfort from some medical issues.

I have not done much formal writing or posting to the forum as, quite frankly, the posting process is just too time consuming and distracting when I’m doing research and testing. I’ve been keeping notes for future reference for a larger ‘thread series’ which will be more comprehensive, better organized and hopefully have improved presentation. That series is what this work is for. Two forum members are aware of the proposed new series, like my ‘sandbox’ threads, and have provided strong positive feedback. This thread is a ‘soft jump-start’ to the developing new series.

I have felt that some of you may want to journey along with me as I go through the process for a specific technique with an individual medium(s) to get a understanding for how I go about the process of developing information to present to you, the modeler, outside of my normal modeling experience.

In this thread I’m going to try to express my thinking and testing methodologies. I’m not going to edit the entries in this thread into a series of steps, each building on the earlier entries as I normally do. Instead, this thread will be composed of my thoughts and self-discussions as I work through the process of trying to use underpainting in the application of inks and pastels to basswood . I’ll try to enhance the discussion with pictures as appropriate. A large goal here is not to allow the writing process to impinge on the research, testing and evaluation progression, but to allow you to ‘look over my shoulder’. As this will be a different style format than usual, please do not expect the thread entries to be as cohesive and sequenced as my normal writing style.

OK… here we go. Hope you enjoy.
SRMW- Martin's Machine Co. - Kitbash
Posted by Pennman On 01/07/2018 At 9:06:25 PM
This will be my challange project for 2018. I am going to build the South River Model Works kit, Martin Machine Co.,( from 1993 ), or at least make an attempt! This kit has everything needed to construct a fine diorama, thanks to South River Model Works - Bob Van Gelder, who rently retired from the structure making side of the business. (Good luck on your retirement Bob)




I am scratchbuilding half of the kit, so since my structure build doesn't fall within the bounds of the 2018 "Take One Down and Build One" challange thread, my build will follow here..after an introduction ....

This kit was built by at least a couple of people on the forum, Frank Bernard (Trevor Creek), and Scott Mason. I emailed Frank for a picture of his build, but didn't receive an answer from him. So, I have no clue if he ever finished his build. Although Scott Mason built two of these kits, he showed a few progress pictures, along with final photos, but not an S-B-S build.

Thanks, comments are welcome.

More New Stuff on the F&SM
Posted by halrey On 12/30/2017 At 6:17:33 PM
Well, most of the Expo team stopped by George's on Thursday, Jimmy had to wait on the sidewalk... not really.
George has been really enjoying the layout, he seams Very excited about having lots of time for scratch building.
Here are a few new additions and some modifications to current structures..

Oh, and a little fooling around as Doug points-out where George should have put a structure... all in fun.

Great day, followed with an Expo meeting.

This thread is for photos of completed projects from the 2018 "Take One Down, Don't Pass It Around" Challenge.

The 2018 "Take one down ..." Challenge Thread
Posted by Dutchman On 12/24/2017 At 08:57:46 AM
This is the main thread for the first Challenge of 2018 - the "Take One Down, Don't Pass It Around" Challenge.

Participants have from now through Sunday, April 15 to work on their chosen project.

This is a simple group Challenge. Simply reach up on your shelf of unbuilt kits and take one down. Put it on your modeling table and have at it. It doesn't matter if the kit is for a structure, rolling stock, detail item, etc.

Share your build progress in this thread.

I'm hoping that we get our usual broad participation in this year's Challenge.

When you are done, you can post some final pictures in the thread dedicated to that purpose. If there is still time, take a second kit down off the shelf.

Here is the link to the "Final Pictures" thread:

http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=49924

Let the Challenge begin!

Hallo from Germany,

I invite you all to visit my Modellcom-Blog. Many different things to look at: logging, mining, cardmodeling for the model railroader, regular card modeling, many hints and links to other interesting sites. A special feature of the site are regular hints to free downloadable card models or free books on trains. Site is only in german, but you can use the prominently placed Google translation tool.See it here:
