Very impressive Peter.

My dad brought some GN15 (if that's correct)at the Swanely show, only a couple of wagons and chassis to have a muck around with.

I'm pretty sure I've seen you on the road exhibiting before.

Kind regards Dan

Thanks Dan, Two Sister's Farm is actually 1/32 scale not GN15. See the Gnatterbox site for ideas in that scale.

Regards Peter M

Hi Martin,
I can't for the life of me remember where I got the sacks from, they are ready made of hard plastic. I merely painted them a sort of buff Hessian colour then gave them a thin wash of dark grey acrylic. I wish I knew where I got them as I wouldn't mind a few more.



A view looking down the yard towards the engine shed, the GMC railtruck is just setting off for a day's work in the fields.



The Opel receiving some attention while the GMC truck starts up in readiness for a days work.



The Lister towing a small Sidelines four wheeled wagon. This model is not dissimilar to some of the wagons used on the Nocton estate railway.



A contrast in fronts, three different shunters used to do the main line work. I say main line it was a track that went all round the fields and temporary track was laid into the fields at harvesting time.
On the Nocton Estate for instance on its 7800 acres there was almost 23 miles of single track. There was also track used for a large number of sidings and temporary track that brought the total to around 35 miles.

Peter,
it was the vertical sacks that look like they're made of some fine netting that I was interested in. The separate spuds being visible in them. Very impressive.

Martin, Yes they are the ones that are made of plastic actually.
I think I got lucky with the painting. I always use several washes.

Regards Peter M

Howdy Peter, I always love to see photos of your fine modeling. Please keep them coming. The bags? They look to be 1:35 scale TAMIYA #35025. I use these for processed ore ready to be shipped from a mill or smelter. Hope this helps.

Happy new year to you.
Woodie

Thanks Woody I will see if I can get hold of some.
They are perfect to represent potatoes.

Peter,
They are superbly convincing!
Several washes indeed! I can't believe you get such definition with just paint!

Cheers,
Martin
