Good intentions

It's been a while since I last posted, so here's what I've been up to:
1. Studying
2. Busy time at work
3. A 20-month old who needs constant supervision (don't want him playing with my brass locos,now,do I?)
4. Writing an article for AJRM (slow, but progressing)
5. Dreaming, particularly being inspired by my old mate Ian Millard and his Liverpool Range layout.
6. Working on some artwork for brass etching

What's left over is for modelling.

However, the article I mentioned is about modelling brickwork, an area which is often overlooked here. I have been trying different methods of representing brick walls, with varying success. I will post some photos when I get them off the camera.

Until then, may all your days be spent in the train room.


  1. Hey James,
    Interested in your findings for brickwork as I will have a project in the future requiring such information.

  2. Hi James,

    I too am interested in brickwork, in particular for the tunnel mouths at Ardglen.


  3. Hi guys,
    Thanks for your interest. I will post a few things on brickwork in the next few weeks to get your thoughts.

    I took a picture of the northern portal at Ardglen recently, but I suspect you have many more!

    When using your Noch static grass applicator, what flock material did you use?
