Weathering wood models O scale

Tom’s been busy with his weathering wood models O scale – have a look at his pics – stunning stuff.

He’s been kind enough to share more pics of his layout.

If you missed it last time, they are here.

“I can tell you that this On3 layout has been in Narrow gauge Gazette along with my Gn15 diorama, other bits and pieces of my work can be seen in S scale magazine, MRC and soon in MR.

The room itself is about 24 x 28 feet not a whole lot of room for O scale with in this space I needed a fairly good size work area, storage (lots of storage you understand how we MRR’s collect things)

Here is one other point that I would like to make and its something that most of us for get about, when you work in scale thats less the 1 to 1 which of course the real thing. That you should tone down or subdue your colors I’ve seen in many magazines photo’s of great work only to be spoiled ( in my opinion only) Grass that is of such a color that it belongs in a cartoon on TV

Just an amazing layout. A big thank you to Tom. He makes it look like a lot fun to weathering wood models O scale.

I could look at Tom’s layout all day – it just has so much character.

In one of his earlier posts he explains how he uses dirt – real dirt – to help get the weathered look on his roads and buildings.

You cans see how well it works. It’s always the simple stuff that works best.

That’s all for today folks.

Please do keep ’em coming.

It’s a lot more fun doing than watching.

Best

  1. WOW!!!!! Omy omy omy!!!

    I have NEVER seen such detail (especially scenery – e.g. crumbling pavement on streets) on a model layout – but O scale lets you do that; size helps. Just magnificent . . . Tom, you DEFINITELY de man!!!
