Ian, Thanks mate. What I didn't realise when I purchased the reeds, they are N scale ! The damn retailer's (Hobbyco) pricing ticket was stamped over the top ! :whatever: Glad you like the wagons.

Paul, a few wild flowers just may make it in there ! ;)

Toto, thanks mate. What is funny is that to do one wagon, as per the youtube video, it took 34 minutes. To do the remaining five, it took about 80-90 minutes ! Maybe I should do my weathering in bulk... ;)

This afternoon after the PVA had cured thoroughly enough (warm in Sydney today), I painted the water weeds/reeds with some acrylic paint (Humbrol RC405), allowed this to dry then touch up around the base and up the stems with some el-cheapo acrylics. I made up a straw colour for this. Allowing this paint to dry, I gave them a quick squirt of acylic matt sealer to look the colour in.

This is the results...





Once all this had dried, it was time to peel them off the baking paper, cut to size and glue into the canal.





If you look close enough at the pic above, you will notice that I have stippled the surface of the PVA, after the reeds were planted. I'm happy with the way this has come up, but I still think it needs that shopping trolley !

Then again, I do have the Scalescenes 'Interior Detail' kit (TX00a), which has a dryer and a stove... They could always be thrown in (the deep end) !!

Cheers, Gary.

Lovely stuff Gary,

How about chucking in a tyre or two off an old Matchbox car?????.......or even chuck the car in???....now there`s a thought.

I`ve got a Matchbox / Hotwheels  pick up truck with no wheels.....you`re welcome to it if you want. It`s already distressed.......just needs chucking in the canal???

This discussion makes you wonder how many of us were once environmental vandals.....come on fellas....put your hands up.!!!:giggle::giggle::giggle::giggle:

Not me guv, never - look at the amount of card I recycle :thumbs:

And for those who haven't seen the Scalescene Interior Detail Kit, there are rusty versions of appliances as well as pristine, although, I think you would need to scratch build a twin tub.

It's all looking good Gary
The canal is looking very good
Great how to video on doing the press flow hoppers
The powders you use work to give the same effect to adding talc to paint, use slightly more powder to build up the layers/effect, they look really good in the photo.
The isopropyl is expensive here in OZ for some reason don't know why and Bunnings and Masters only sell that little bottle like you have no bulk. The only way to get it at a resonable price is to get it from a cosmetics supplier in 5L container about $25.
They use it in the cosmetic industry as an spray tan air brush cleaner so a supplier that sell spray tan stuff etc will usualy have it, if you can find someone local in Sydney.
A group of us got a 5L and split it up however I'm out again so need to find another supply as the local one has gone out of business now, but not sure you could get it mail order?.
Will let you know how I go.

I bought a 5ltr ages ago on line , delivered by courier for about 18 as it was way cheaper than buying the little 250ml bottles normally available. At the time there were problems with it being delivered via the post and delivery costs from the normal ebay suppliers was very high. Mine came from one of the companies that supply it in bulk to industry but were happy also supplying just 1 container. so its worth googling it in your country to see whats available

  Cheers     Matt

Thanks Paul
Thinking out side the box Fleebay was a winner hadn't consider it due to thinking postage issues but found this posted from Queensland a little more expensive than the local supply but that was over the counter. $45 Free postage = built into price so about the same. Is also 100% so you can cut to your desired % with distilled water, to make it go further.

Paul, Don't worry plenty of overripe Oranges down under especially visible if attending a wedding during our winter months.

Link to the bay add for Gary and any down under P1's
Edit found a better one 5.75L posted from Victoria. Ordered!

That's come up a treat Gary. The stippling has worked too, you must have been sitting there poking at it for half an hour until it dried?


Isopropyl Alcohol can be obtained from the likes of Jaycar or Altronics or other electronic specialty stores in 1L or 5L bottles for a reasonable price. The sparkies amongst us use it for cleaning electrical components I believe?


cheers
Marty

Hi Marty,

Thanks for the compliments. The first stippling was allowed to dry clear, before I added a little more. The process was repeated about 4 times overall, over a 90 minute period.

I could only find the 250ml bottles at Jaycar, but Altronics have 2L for $26.95.

I will say that the small bottle (atomiser) I have has lasted a good 18 months and it still has atleast 75ml left... But at $14.95 for that small bottle, the larger quantities do look attractive !

Cheers, Gary.

Gary You could always buy a 5ltr and half it with Gormo, that would last you both a fair while 
Really liking those 'weeds' in the canal and the water stippling just makes it look right :thumbs:
I like the idea of the old washing machine as well but no idea if they had shopping trollies back then ? although I suppose it could be a failed 'Back to the future experiment' by Doc ???
Cheers
   Matt

I have just received my invite to the 2016 Epping Model Railway Exhibition (Sydney), in June. This will be Industry Lanes' first outing.

My other layout Linden Ford, should be having it's last outing in March at the Forestville Exhibition, but then again, the organisers (North Sh ore Railway Modellers Association) have not replied as yet so I don't know if I have been accepted... :whatever:

Cheers, Gary.

Hi Gary that's great news that you will be exhibiting at the Brick pit. Industry lane is looking great will be good to have a British layout on display again this year.
I will have Moonan Flat their too as just received an invite, will be filling in the forms today.
We will have to make up a platform 1 sign for our layouts.

I usualy try to get down to Forrest Ville exhibition I will make an extra effort this year as the North Sh ore Club have a new Oscale shunting layout that they are displaying this year as well.

Edit didn't know that the word s:bleep6: (Sh ore) was offensive gets an "auto" beep?:giggle:
