An Industrial Narrow Gauge Adventure - Adding Clutter part twenty

Regular followers of this Blog will know that I have been working on an industrial narrow gauge railway layout built to 1:27.7 scale or 11mm = 1 foot. The choice of such an unusual scale has meant that much if not all items needed for the layout have had to be heavily modified and/or converted from existing models, completely 'scratch built' or sculpted by me.

In a series of clutter themed posts which are planned to run throughout August I will demonstrate what materials I have used to model such items and how I have painted these various pieces of 'clutter' which will at some stage be added to the finished layout.

The larger piece of exhaust was made from various pieces of plastic tubing, some pen barrels and straws. The metal banding and mounts were either sticky-back plastic and/or strips of aluminium. The demijohn is a modified resin casting detailed with new Green Stuff handles while the rest of the bits are scrap plastic found in my bits box or scrounged from work.

Painting was done with the same techniques detailed elsewhere on the Blog.
