This project is slowly progressing with a bit more work this week. The corrugated iron water tanks are from Ian Lindsay Models and Sydney Hobbies. The tank stands are scratch built using Northeastern Lumber HO scale 2″x 6′ for the platform, 4″x 6″ for the uprights and 3 millimetre dowel for the legs. I have purposely made the legs longer to allow for adjustment when fitting the tank stands into the landscape.
Next is the Campbell’s HO scale roofing iron cutting it to size with equal widths to fit onto the roof, there are 12 rows of roofing iron to go so a photo of the roof is handy so the number can more or less match up it pays not to make them too wide.
Spray painting with an etch primer first and then I sprayed Tamiya sky grey XF-19 thinned with Isocol I prefer a flat acrylic because it gives a good finish for weathering to key to. I should mention that A R KITS supply a corrugated iron sheet that is a slightly heavier gauge than the Campbell’s. That brings me up to date more soon.
NSWGR veteran of the rails Z1708 with independent HFL deputises for a failed CPH railmotor, hopefully making a connection at the mainline.
