My unnamed guitar case layout is finished

Postby Towers » Fri Nov 29, 2013 12:37 am

I've pretty much finished my layout now. Just got to think of a name for it. Something like Stratfield or Fenderton or Fenderford.

Seconded! You have really nailed the scenery to work with the scale, and having correctly fenced track is also very impressive.

A great looking layout. Did you use scatter materials for the scenery?

I used Woodland Scenics green flock I think. The trees are from a chinese website and the bushes are woodland scenics underbrush medium green.

The fencing is 1:450 Japanese ship railing.

I've just received a couple of packs of the Japanese ship railing. Its when you get down to these sort of details that you realise how blooming small this gauge is!! :shock: :shock:

Re. the trees/ground cover: I also got some of the Chinese trees "by the bag". They look good I think, but the green is a little to vivid.. I'm planning on knocking it down a bit with some airbrushed "dust" or "khaki" .. that should serve to blend things together a bit.

I love this layout...looks fantastic! The attention to detail is great as well....something that's very easy to disregard in this scale but looks great when done well!

I think I have a very similar set of trees to this...absolute bargain! Great to see how they look in-situ!

Towers, the white painted Terrace houses that you used are they the ones from Shapeways Yeswac's T Gauge Models. If so how were they to use and paint etc.

They are indeed Yeswacs terraced houses, the shops on the street are Yeswac's too. I used a few buildings from Shapeways.

They were relatively easy to paint. I've been painting warhammer models for years and I used Citadel paints to paint my buildings. They require a light scrub with a toothbrush as you would with a resin model, some of my 3d stuff from shapeways has come with a weird transparent goo on it. After that I just painted straight onto it.

The buildings from shapeways can be quite fragile due to the thin walls. I also had a warped wall on one of my shop buildings which I managed to hide, I don't think it was fixable, I just hid it.

I did a test with lighting but the material is too transparent and the whole building glowed regardless of walls so I gave up on that idea.
