Weathering for Railway Modellers

Volume 1 - Locomotives and Rolling Stock

Once seen as a niche practice, the craft of weathering has now become firmly rooted in the railway modelling mainstream. Not simply a means of rendering models in layers of dirty paint, weathering involves a myriad of techniques aimed at improving realism, including distinctive surface textures, highlights and shading, burnishing and peeling paint finishes. The weathering process brings out the best in a model, making moulded relief or a lustrous livery really stand out. As well as replicating the real world more closely, weathering also helps a model to look at home within a scenic setting. Aimed at modellers of all abilities and eras, this book is an essential guide to creating the most realistic locomotives and rolling stock in any scale. It includes: a guide to tools, paints, washes, dry pigments and other innovative media; the correct techniques for model preparation; a wide range of techniques for wagons, carriages, locomotives and multiple units in any scale; how to replicate authentic surface textures and effects, from polished surfaces to corroded metal and worn timber; how to bring models to life with faded paintwork, peeling and chipped finishes and subtle highlights and shading; the secret to successful airbrushing. This book will be of great interest to railway modellers of varying abilities, particularly those interested in rolling stock and locomotives, and is fully illustrated with 660 colour photographs.

This wide ranging and informative book, which is brimming with practical advice, is aimed at all those who wish to create authentic models of ports, canals, quays, wharfs and their associated railway infrastructure. Topics covered in this new book include the history of ports and inland waterways, and the important role played by the railways in facilitating their operation; layout plans and ideas, all based on prototypes, that are aimed specifically at the scratch builder; a selection of modelling projects are included with dioramas of both a canal wharf and two different estuary ports, supported by nearly 400 hundred step-by-step colour photographs, drawings and track plans. Finally, it covers the modelling and painting techniques that can be used to create realistic-looking water and how models can be made more convincing and brought to life by the addition of appropriate colouring and weathering. This practical guide is aimed at railway modellers of all abilities, and will also be of interest to modellers in general. Beautifully illustrated with 394 colour step-by-step photographs, drawings and track plans.

Building a Miniature Navy Board Model

This latest step-by-step volume from Phil Reed tackles what, for many, are regarded as the ultimate expression of the ship model maker's art, the Navy Board model. These beautiful early eighteenth-century works of art are well represented in the major maritime museums both here and in the States as well as in private collections and here the author deals with the construction of a miniature 1/192 scale model of the Royal George of 1715, in which all the conventions of Navy Board framing and planking are demonstrated .??He takes us through every stage of the work with the aid of nearly 400 photographs, each one accompanied by detailed text. Methods of hull and deck framing, internal and external planking, the construction of the complex stern with its array of galleries doors and windows, are all covered; the rendering of the multitude of decorative carvings on the figurehead, stern and broadside is also demonstrated. ??At the end of the book there is a short section showing his model of Syren, which demonstrates how the techniques used to frame Royal George could be adapted for ships of a later date, using single and double frames closer to full-size practice.
