    G`day Folks,

    And welcome to this weeks special episode of Gormo`s Shed.

    This week it has nothing at all to do with me, but rather a new forum member Fred Wilbury.

    Now Fred only joined us on the 4th of October, so he is really new to the forum, however he is not new to me as he has been one of my YouTube subscribers for some time now.

    The other day he contacted me and asked me to have a look at his new video about making your own station lamps. That sounded interesting to me, as you know I`m into roll your own railway items, so I had a look and I was very impressed with Fred`s production and methods of manufacture, in fact I thought it was bloomin` brilliant. ....:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

    So I contacted Fred after the viewing, and asked him if he would consent to me showcasing his methods on Gormo`s Shed this week. Fred graciously accepted the invitation and here we are folks.!!!

    I will also place a link here to Fred`s YouTube channel in case you wish to catch up with what he`s doing on his railway.

    But in the meantime, here is the video in question about station lamps.

    How I Made Station Lamps



    On behalf of the members ......thanks for sharing this with us Fred...:handshake:

    Great idea - I love it when you can find a use for something on a model railway that was never intended. Had a look at 2 or 3 of Fred's other video's - love the grandchildrens involvement :) Will watch a few more later, and I've subscribed - thanks Gormo for the introduction :thumbup:

    A good use for 'POP' rivets, Fred. My normal method is to glue a 3mm washer onto a 3mm LED to form the 'dish' of the shade, bending the LED's leads to form the support bracket then painting to suit before gluing into position on the wall of a building. If you're mimicking incandescent lamps, then use "Warm White" LED's, "White" coloured ones have a slight blue tinge, so resemble the later "Mercury Vapour" type lamps.
    Keith.

    Thanks lads,

    For all the replies......we will try and do more of this in the future.

    When I find a video I think may be of value, like Fred`s, I`ll ask for the necessary permissions and see if we can show it.

    Freds video was an excellent "how to", I watched it after clicking on the youtube logo at the bottom which takes you to the site, then watched it full screen, but what I particularly like is the links to his other videos and similar films, there is an awful lot of information out there! I have subscribed to one or two sites that I've found really interesting, wargamers use lots of techniques that we can put to use. I will see if the guy who does one I particularly like would mind me sharing the link.

    Cheer's, Pete.
