Hornby Issue 37 – July 2010

Weathering with powders


Special weathering powders and artists pastels offer an alternative to painting when it comes to weathering.

Mike Wild compares three options and shows how to use them.

llangenydd

Ken Jones took a layout started by Ron North and transformed it into a rural 1950s North Wales scene.

Editorial

New models are very welcome – but is a bubble forming?

Scenes from Life

James Lavery adds some poignant detail to Waytown with a disused crossing keeper’s cottage.

Trackplans

Fitting main line operation in ‘OO’ scale in a length of 8ft is difficult, but it’s not impossible – as Ian Morton proves with this ingenious solution.

Parker’s Guide

Etched brass kits allow more unusual models to be built and needn’t be much more difficult to build than plastic models. Phil Parker shows how he built a rare SECR ballast plough.

Hatton Parkway – Part 1

Ian Morton begins a new series looking at the construction of a main line layout in ‘N’ gauge, starting with baseboard construction and tracklaying.

Reviews

A packed 18-page review section packed with this month’s releases, featuring Bachmann’s ‘OO’ ‘O4’ and ‘N’ ‘4MT’, Dapol’s ‘N’ scale Class 58 and including Reality Check looking at the history of the Robinson ‘O4’ 2-8-0s.

Hornby Post

Readers’ views on the most important modelling issues – and some fascinating Pullman information.

Dalry Road

When the opportunity arose to buy Steve Thompson’s ‘O’ gauge slice of Edinburgh, Bradford MRC exhibition organiser Ian Atkinson leapt at the opportunity to once again have his own layout on the show circuit.

Digital Command Control

Hornby’s flagship Sapphire decoder has a lot of potential on paper, but does it match that in reality? Ian Morton finds out.

Railway Realism

Railway tunnels are far from ‘boring’ – their variety and form is almost endless and they can make a real difference to a layout. Evan Green-Hughes presents a brief overview of the options.

Devon Cliffs

Taking inspiration from the famous Sea Wall route in Devon, Steve Jones’ take on his favourite line allows many eras to be operated with credibility. Here he turns the clock back to the 1970s and ‘80s when BR blue dominated.

Show Guide

Hornby Magazine’s comprehensive guide to forthcoming exhibitions and events.


24-page Garden Railways Free Supplement.

i actually like hornby magazine, especially the practical articles and tips.

i'm building an n gauge layout so i wasn't sure if hornby magazine would be virtually all 'OO' and pro-hornby, but it was actually very good with coverage of other gauges as well! no one paid me to say this!!! hahaha i was genuinely pleasently surprised by how good the magazine was.

As the new series on building Hatton Parkway shows, HM does do N, it does contemporary diesels as well. biggrin.gif

i liked the weathering with powders article too

i like it when model magazines have a box with info about the real loco / wagon / line / region whatever as well, esp if it is rare or unsusual
