In the sixth article in this series, Cleve Cheney gives instruction on how to construct as reflex-deflex longbow. Up to this point we have made a curing oven and a laminating press and now we can get down to the purpose of it all – making an actual bow. If you have access to a belt sander this will make your job a whole lot quicker, but you can manage with hand tools.
With the handle now roughly shaped we can turn our attention to the lay-up of the limb laminations. STEP 1: Cut the strips of fibreglass and wood veneers that are going to come on the front (face) of the bow so that they fit between the brass pins on the lower half of the bow mold. STEP 3: Cover the smooth sides of the bow glass laminations with masking tape to protect the surface from glue. STEP 7: Lay out the fibreglass strips and wood veneers in the correct sequence that they are going to be laid up.
STEP 9: Use a piece of the fibreglass that you cut off to apply an even, thin layer of epoxy on one side of the fibreglass strips and on both sides of the riser and subsequent wood strips.
STEP 10: Lay up the epoxied fibreglass, wood strips and riser in the order shown in figures 8 and 9. STEP 11: Using insulation tape, tape everything together as shown in figure 10 and cover with clingwrap. The form is now placed in the heating box with the temperature set at 800C and left to cure for six to eight hours. This product is now sold exclusively through our advanced composite materials and supplies website, Easy Composites. If you want to start making your own carbon fibre parts the first thing you'll need to do is make moulds for the parts you want to make. Included in the kit is 750g of special mould making 'putty', epoxy resin tooling gel coat, their appropriate hardeners, a tin of wax and some gloves. The mould making putty in the kit replaces the need for chopped strand mat (unwoven fibre glass mat), polyester resin and catalyst normally used in fibreglass mould manufacture. As with all Carbon Mods starter kits, the mould making kit is accompanied by comprehensive instructions that take you through the process of skinning your parts from prep all the way to polish.
Without hills, a model railway layout could end up looking a little lifeless and lack character if we’re not careful.
In this update, Michael takes through the step by step process he uses to create some remarkably realistic scenery indeed, and you don’t need to be a master modeller to do it!
Repairs or additions to the surface are also easy and the new section will bond well to the existing part.  The biggest plus as far as I am concerned though is that it will not crack, even if the base is flexed, and then allow white streaks of plaster of paris to show through.


Insert short lengths of wire into these and bend to make a former, pushing the other end into other holes. Mix the fibreglass resin and hardener together (Like the mat, these are obtainable from car accessory shops or if you know a roofer who does fibreglass roofs – even cheaper!) as per instructions. Using a stiff paint brush, coat the matting with the mixture, pushing well into the matting.  Don’t worry about any holes, these can be used to secure bushes, trees etc, into, or make it into a fox or rabbit hole!
When the fibreglass is hard (which is likely to be in less than half an hour, depending on amount of hardener used and the room temperature)  paint brown.  I use brown masonry paint as I had some left from painting the front of the house but any paint will do.
The bush is made from an old pan scourer sprayed black, then added scatter secured by hairspray.  The tree is made from sea moss with Autumn scatter added, again using hairspray.
In this video, Everard Junction takes us through the basics of creating an embankment, hills and tunnels for your model railway layout using newspaper, cardboard and modRoc cloth. About UsAt Model Trains Online it's our job to help you get the very best from the worlds greatest hobby, serving railway modellers like yourself in over 102 countries worldwide!
Whether you're new to the world of railway modelling, or your's a seasoned collector and scratch-builder, we hope you'll find our site useful, informative, fun and educational. This is a set of 8 Yellow fibreglass ladders nearing completion in our fabricating workshop all with a walk through and self-closing safety gate fitted as standard. Apply Cobra floor wax polish to the part of the top and bottom mold that will be in contact with the bow. If you're new to composites this can be a daunting task and for this reason we have put together a comprehensive mould making kit which makes use of brand new materials and techniques to make the process of making high quality moulds as quick, easy and clean as possible. This amount of putty and gelcoat is sufficient to make a sufficiently strong mould of about 30cm x 30cm, depending on the shape of the mould.
The reason for doing this is that polyester resin and its catalyst are both rather nasty to work with and very difficult to ship. You could use the plastic shell of an RC car as the pattern for a mould made in the way shown on this page - what you'd be left with is a mould ready to make your own carbon fibre shell. It's important to get the finish you want your mould to have on your part already (where possible). In this video, he walks us through the step by step process of creating a realistic cutting or embankment for your layout using a plaster, paint & some static grass to create a realistic cutting with an exposed rock face. In this video, he walks us through the step by step process of creating a realistic cutting or embankment for your layout using a plaster, paint & some static grass to create a realistic cutting with an exposed rock face. Even in areas with the flattest of terrains, there land still has contours and differences in level. This technique uses fibreglass and can be used for creating all kinds of terrain and hills, large or small and is nice and easy to get to grips with.
Without them, you’d either be modelling the Fens or things would be looking a bit too flat for most realistic landscapes.


Again, great use of every day items for both the method (cheap brushes, mixing utensils etc), and also pan scourer & hairspray to replicate bushes. We regularly tackle a wide range of railway modelling topics, from baseboard construction to landscaping, track laying to wiring. Make sure there are no visible gaps between the laminations or between the handle and laminations. For making smaller parts especially, this new putty material is a fast, clean and highly effective way of making moulds requiring no prior fibreglass experience. You normally wouldn't do much polishing on the mould, if the part was shiney, your mould will be shiney.
So adding hills, embankments, valleys and slopes is something we should all consider when building a model train layout.
Even towns and villages usually feature hills, so it’s important design them into your layout right from the start. I’m going to try and get him to write a tutorial on making bushes from pan scourers too! If you'd like us to cover a particular topic, just drop us a line and let us know through the contact us page. Because of the way the putty is ‘formed’ into shape, it avoids the pitfalls of air-voids and blisters that can blight early mould making attempts with traditional fibreglass. With the right amount of putty in your hand for the job you add the appropriate amount of hardener and mix the two materials together thoroughly. You would only start with a coarser abrasive paper if you had coarser stratches or blemishes to get rid of.
Alternatively we will be pleased to quote for our craftsmen to install for you.Can be used in conjunction with our safety gates as shown in the pictures below.
Just tell us the internal width (less 10mm for fitting) and we will cut free of charge for you.
It should not be over 1,6 mm thick 25 mm from the tip and not over 6,3 mm 50 mm from the tip. A thickness of 1cm of putty for a small part or 2cm for a larger part would make for a strong durable mould. Trace the outline of your handle onto the piece of wood and cut the handle out on a band saw. To get the ends to a very thin taper take a large drum sanding disc and sand the tips down as shown in figure 3.
