As always ,,, great work. Cheers The weathering on the loco's is superb. Worship The effect of the paint being worn down to the metal is fantastic. Can you share some of your technique with us please ?

All the techniques come from the model military techniques. One of the master is mig jimenez owner of mig company. One of the bible is FAQ 2 by Mig Jimenez with more than 300 pages plus there is also a dvd available.

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.militarymodelling.com/news/article/faq-2-by-mig-jimenez/10736">http://www.militarymodelling.com/news/a ... enez/10736</a><!-- m -->

What I can advise to you is to buy it, test it and choose the methods you want and adapt it to your feel.

For my part I paint the model with humbrol enamel paint
then I use dust from dry pastel + pigment
Then I use graphite pigment + graphite pen for metalic effect
Then I use matt vanish to protect all the job
Then I do chipping with sponge with rust acrilyc paint
Then I apply oil and fuel effect on the model.

For specific product you can find it on <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.migjimenez.com/en/">http://www.migjimenez.com/en/</a><!-- m -->

You can find all the details with far more talent than me in this book or others books or magazines if you want.

Just take a view at military model magazine and buy a few ones to explore these techniques. The military models have at least 20/30 years of advance compare to us.

I'm sorry but I can't resume here all the methods describe in more than 300 pages.

Any particular reason you picked that name for the boat? In Norwegian it looks like you just cut the word "Sjøstjerne" (starfish) in half...

Well, in that case, I suggest using smaller letters :lolol: Also, you could name it Sjøstjerna (the -a ending indicating female form of "The Starfish", as opposed to -en indicating male form).

"Sjøstje" looks and sounds very Scandinavian to a German eye and ear. We should get used to the technique of selective name compression too..... :o

That may be, but it's still just a bunch of letters making no sense at all. Sjøstjerne is comprised of the two words "sjø" (=sea) and "stjerne" (=star), and there is no abbreviation for it. In fact, it may be better to leave out "sjø", and use just "Stjerna" (The Star), a quite normal play with words here in Norway, and still keeping with the maritime reference.

Anyway, Franck is of course free to name his boat whatever he wants, but with such an eye for fantastic details and an otherwise beautiful layout, it seems strange to me if he would go for a name that has no meaning.

Just as a curiosity, I found this article about unusual boat names in Lofoten, based on the list of boats between 7 and 29 meters in lenght registered in the Vessel Registry. There's also a link to the complete list of all 451 boats (Excel file), maybe you get some inspiration here? Wink:

Your Loco designs are also a true work of art.

"Building boats, boring" Wink :lol: I'm currently working on a 1:125.5 scale model of the first Destroyer I served in, USS Lowry DD-770.
The scale comes from the fact that I am using a commercially available 36" plastic hull as the starting point of the build.
As a result of "that scale", pretty much everything has to be built from scratch.

The Quick Action Watertight Doors, are approx, 1/2" X 5/16" and have 29 tiny parts each...... :yup: boring !

I haven't counted exactly how many of those I will need..... at this point I have four Confusedhocked: of them built and installed.
I can truly appreciate your working in a scale where: you almost have to drill the holes in the buttons of your figures jackets, and sew them in place
Keep up the good work !! Wink Wink I could use some "inspiration" Big Grin Big Grin Cheers
We always learn far more from our own mistakes, than we will ever learn from another's advice.
The greatest place to live life, is on the sharp leading edge of a learning curve.
Lead me not into temptation.....I can find it myself!

I'm not satisfied at 100 % on the details because I have finish my layout in the hurry. Our club closes at the end of the month !

Anyway, the layout is more or less finished and will be ready to go in exhibitions.

Here some photos with new locos and a few new rolling stocks. I will run also on the layout also a listen and a Ruston too.

For my eyes it is phantasmic (again) !
What happens to your club? Do the members stop forming a club or is it the "usual" trouble with space for the club layout??
