I use photo floods for my layout pictures but the lorry ones were done with just an anglepoise lamp with two 18w daylight tubes.

Here's some more stuff :)  Dried tea and hot chocolate powder were added to the junk heap to help with the rust.

Hi Phil

What a waste of perfectly good tea:D its really better used as the fertile soil for parks and gardens.

Well that's what I use it for but I use de caffeinated "T" bag tea because it's ********** undrinkable muck

When using food products for scenery I hope you remembered to mix a few drops of pine o clean domestic disinfectant,

with the 50 50 glue mix formula in addition to the usual soap drops.

The disinfectant helps keep the vermin and insect pests away as it makes it inedible and has to them a very unpleasant smell.

But the junk pile well looks like a junk pile so tea and chocolate powder must work.

regards John

Wouldn't it be good if we had straight walls and no windows etc behind our layouts, so a bit of tounge in the cheek over the top PS to hide all this stuff  :D

I'm thinking of modeling so tin sheds/stables in the area where the man is sitting?

Here's a view that can only be seen with a camera, it was just placed on the mountain above the tunnel, set to AV, f22  and with focus set to three feet, it's a matter of trial and era what it turns out like.

I've decided to leave scenic stuff for the moment and pick up where I left off 15 years ago with a Malcolm Mitchell 00 43xx Mogul brass etched kit, it's 3/4 finished, here's yesterdays work.

Here's the tender with partial weathering, I'm not very impressed with pressfix transfers as I notice they are lifting.
