Hornby Dublo Layout

Our Group has another new member, Peter Willis is a well known Exhibition Manager and Exhibitor in East Anglia. Peters first layout available within the group is a Hornby Dublo demonstration layout. It represents Meccano Products made in the 1940’s and 50’s.

Please see the list of Exhibition Layouts on this site to book this layout for your Exhibition.

Three OO Bachmann Ale wagons

This is a re-weathering job as they came factory weathered. I have to say that Bachmann did a very good job – but they looked very ‘flat’ and a bit ‘light’. I did my usual wash and wipe with Matt Black and then re-sprayed the underframe using four colours rather than the original one colour spray.

Getting the Matt Black in the boarding gaps really brings their appearance to life.

OO J15 re-worked

This is a Hornby J15 that I have re-worked as an earlier variety. It has now got the ‘British Railways’ logo and has been renumbered. The Loco has then received a medium weathering consisting of a dusting of grime by airbrush and then some dry brushing to highlight various details.

HMRS Transfers, Railmatch and Humbrol paints used.

Ivatt 4MT in OO Gauge

This is a Loco that used to run on a layout that I sold several years ago. Since then it has just been stored awaiting a new project that so far has not materialised. It has now been serviced, re-numbered and BR Logo changed to an early crest. It should be going to a new home soon. It is lightly weathered, has a lamp added, Screw couplings and pipes and has real coal.
