Point Work

I have to say a big thank you to Greg King for assembling all the point work for my layout.

Point blades being assembled.
Here I’ve started assembling the point work leading to one of the balloon loops. The middle road will be a storage siding at the terminus.

The Plan

I’ve finally made a start on my own O scale layout. My space is very small in the confines of my small shed but I’m hoping to pack as much operational enjoyment in as I can.

I’m going to have to widen the baseboard in a two places to accommodate the balloon loops and this is represented in orange.
I’ve also decided to place the tramway workshops conveniently next to my 3D printer.

Saloons coming together.

Saloon parts have been printed. These are simple two part components to allow the best orientation on the 3D printer and prevent support material flashing to appear on any external surface.

Now to primer the surface and paint the body colour.

I used a fantastic range of paint from Scale Modellers Supply specifically colour matched to the SEC colours. This range can be purchased from the SMS website and soon from this site. Click here for more information.
