I am sure some people are curious as to who the owner of Hunter Valley Model Railway Supplies is and what type of layout he has at home.
Here is a view of the construction of the new small dock area with the 1st of 3 scale freighters that will be part of the scene. Step 1 - Bare timber that the DAS Self Drying Clay will be applied to be carved in to a stone retaining wall. Step 2 - Prior to DAS being applied I use Bond Crete as an adhesive to glue the DAS on to the formwork. Step 3 - A smoothed out section of DAS to the correct thickness (approx 4mm) is applied to the Bond Crete. Step 4 - Applying horizontal guide lines using the BACK of a knife blade, try to ensure that lines are level. Step 5 - Carving and shaping of individual stone blocks with a small flat bladed screw driver. A Hornby Class 121 Bubblecar pulls out of the bay platform, whilst a Hornby Class 31 Diesel is about to pass a Bachmann 4MT 2-6-0 and Class 4 Ivatt 2-6-0 doubleheading a freight train.


Looking towards CWM Harris station, the white area in the background is a recently plastered area while the white buildings in the background are concept prototypes for a new industrial area.
Another seaside view, this time a Hornby Weathered Class 31 in BR Blue makes an appearance. The first exhibition I took this layout too was the Combined Hunter Region Modellers Exhibition at the Police Boys Club Broadmeadow.
Originally based on the GWR in Wales it has been undergoing some serious modifications including attacking the scenery with a grinder fitted with a cutting disc to remove a hillside and tunnel and to make way for a a new 2nd station on the main line, double tracking around the sea wall as well as a total redesign of the branchline.
The white plaster area above is rock face that was made using the (aliminium foil method) and has yet to be painted and weathered. The DAS clay will dry to the near white colour then it can be primed and painted for more realism. Track is Peco Code 100, lineside fencing, telegraph poles, signals & grounded coach are all Ratio Products, whilst the engine shed is a Wills Craftsman Kit. It took quite a while to figure out how to form up the ocean with waves breaking, even the sand has a sloping effect around the seawall which is made from plywood covered in DAS Modelling clay and carved into shape.


The grass in the foreground is a new Heki product while the fencing, signal & telegraph poles are Ratio products. Kit includes rubber mold,Lightweight Hydrocal*, Plaster Cloth, Earth Colors Liquid Pigments and applicator.Yields four to five rocks. I kept this layout for a couple of years before selling it, I hear it still exists but a a NSW Outline layout. The layouit is now based on the era of the end of steam with the appearance of the 1st generation diesels.
I first started using this method over 25 years ago when I built my first exhibition layout and have found this method to be reliable and hold up to time. Everything gets a run even a UP DD40 AX until it wedged itself under the road bridge and took a while to release it.
