Leo’s been kind enough to send us some more pics on his stunning HO layout layout, and how he made his HO scale barge too.
If you missed the last post, it’s here.
“Over head pictures:
HO scale barge, made from 1x4x6″ pine wood, angled, sanded and painted. On top I found whatever to enhance to make it look like a drilling barge, coal barge, auto transport or hauling pipe barge. Very simple to make and takes no more than maybe 10 minutes. I made a few of them.
HO scale barge:
Bridge made from venetian blind slat. I judge the scenery I model via looking through a paper towel role, it gives a limited eye view vs an overall view:
My train float came from a piece of foam found in a tv shipping box. The thought being that modeling materials are available around us for next to nothing cost:
Thanks for the comments from you and your viewers. I always thought that my layout is not up to par with other modelers thus the comments are so welcome.
A huge thanks to Leo for showing us how he made his HO scale barge, and these extra pics. Stunning stuff.
When it comes to barges, ports and waterfronts, I’m always reminded of two layouts.
One of them is Brian’s (who is also in the Hall of Fame)
Here’s a pic and a link to his post if you want to have a look – his barge and water are so well detailed:
And there’s also Kaustav’s barge layout too:
That’s all this time, folks.
Please do keep ’em coming, because it’s getting a bit thin on the ground this end.
And please don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide if you want to get going on your layout.
