A selection of building details from brickwork, stone work, blending stone and brick, quorns, window frames, shingles etc... These are those little details that take an average looking model to a superb model.





































I'm sure I have more detail pics and I will update as I find them. if any other members have detail pics, please add to these.

Cheers, Gary.

Sure had !

Started in Hobart, across to Strahan, upto Stanley, across to Devonport, down to Deloraine, continued south to Ross, Oatlands, Richmond, Sorell and then onto Port Arthur... About 1250 km in all !

I can tell you Kim and Ian, all the pics I took have inspired me to start building, but I won't, as then I would need a larger layout ! ;);)

I have other pics of stone wall sections, which I want to play around with on Photofilter 7 to create some long printable wall sections.

Cheers, Gary.

G`day Folks,
Hey Pete....I had to have a second look at Gary`s photos after your comment, because when I was at Port Arthur in early 2000`s, there were photographs there on display taken by tourists, a notice board full of them, and guess what turned up in the photos after processing.????....you guessed it....ghostly figures. Quite clear to the naked eye but unseen when the photos were taken.
I have no reason to doubt these were genuine photographs. The most disturbing was a picture of a little boy about 10 years old. His parent took a pic of him inside one of the houses. When the pic was processed, you can quite clearly see a hooded figure standing next to the lad and hovering over him and it seemed menacing to me.
I wondered at the time, what we were heading into because Port Arthur has a terrible recent history, but it turned out to be a very interesting and lovely day. No ghosts....just sunshine and good company. 
It challenges your concepts of a lot of things though.??

Lovely stuff Gary.


Luckily for me in N scale some of that detail I can leave off.... no-one would see it without a magnifying glass... and at the normal 3 foot viewing range....nah!


Although I'm always tempted to model it anyway!


Gormo... did YOU take any photos?


Marty

Hi Gary,

Some nice details. Like the slate roofs. Excellent reference shots.

Cheers

Toto

Those ain't slate Toto, they are timber shingles !

Cheers, Gary.

ps. I have some interior pics of the old operational saw mill at Strahan if anyone would like to see them.
