More New Backdrop

Image

This photo is really a bit of a test. The scenery has been hacked about and then plonked back in place for this shot but I wanted to test the look of the new backdrop on Queens Wharf.

New Backdrop

Image

A few months ago I picked up a new photo backdrop from Wuiske Models at the Brisbane exhibition. These backdrops were new to me and I made a snap decision to purchase them immediately. They have the great advantage to me that they aren't the same as the ones I already have installed on Morpeth. They are a lot shaprer than the Haskell ones and also greener. I'll put a link to Wuiske Models on the main page.

They have the great advantage to me that they aren’t the same as the ones I already have installed on Morpeth. The images aren’t as distance faded as the Haskell ones on Morpeth and the ones I chose are also “greener” which is ok but they are a bit of a contrast to those already on the layout.

The New 5 ton Gantry Crane

Image

As soon as I decided to alter the track and scenery on this section of Queens Wharf I started looking around for what lineside infrastructure might fit on the new siding. As I'll use any excuse to buy a new model I hopped online and bought myslef a ModelFX 5 ton gantry crane. I've temporarily screwed the ready to use model in place so I can check clearances and take a photo. I haven't even spiked the rails down in this image but I was keen to see what it would look like with the crane in place.
